Girls take 5th at the Cadillac Invitational
Cadillac , MI — "The girls skied great today! We had a last minute change to our line up and the team really stepped up with some great skiing today from our veteran skier and our new skiers a like. We took fifth in both events and were real close to our conference opponent Mattawan/Paw Paw" Coach Petrosky "Barbie DeGood really had a nice race today against some of the best girls skiers in our area. She medaled in GS and just missed a medal in slalom to lead the way for the girls team." Barbie DeGood led the Scots in both events placing 9th in GS and 11th in slalom. Also scoring were Leona Herdin (22nd SL & 25th GS), Claudia Shuster(24th SL & 26th GS), Kyleigh Thompson (18th GS) and Mya Baldwin (27th SL). The Scots next meet is Wednesday afternoon at Timber Ridge Ski Area.
Barbie earned a medal with her 9th place finish in giant slalom and missed a medal in slalom by .03 of a second, in a very tough field of female skiers. Not only is Barbie a fast skier, she is a great leader who is a great example of how having the "Best Attitude" can help those around her.
