Summit's Steven Horbas took the M.A.S.D. Overall Male Championship for his second year in a row. Steven's win was only finalized in the very last race of the season. A few 100ths of a second was what it took to get the win. The close competion made for an action packed season and an exciting final race!
Steven, who started with the Summit Ski Club in the Nancy Greene program, trains and races as a member of the M.A.S.D. Provincial Team. Now competing in F.I.S. level competion, Steven travels to Thuderbay and the Mid-USA. Congratulations on an another outstanding season!

Summit had many athletes on the podium throughout the season. David Takarchuck was no exception. David's consistant efforts had an a great impact on his season. Having an exceptional year, David claimed a very respectible Fourth Place in the Men's Overall competition.
After juggling a heavy basketball season, Glynnis Eyford came onto the skiing scene a little late this season. That delay didn't hamper her performance though, as she consistantly made a strong showing. Her hard work and took her to a Fourth Place finish in the Overall Female M.A.S.D. competition.
