As your Sturgeon Bay Clippers Ski and Snowboard team wrapped up their conference season over the past week, they were led by three Seniors who proved just how far you can come through four years of commitment and determination. On Saturday, Senior Alpine Racer Julia Gregory had her best results, finishing 16th overall at the Ski Brule meet, including 14th and 15th place finishes in the Super G and Giant Slalom events. Julia was a positive influence on younger members of the team throughout the season. It even proved that the team motto* was more facetious than serious by skipping the final meet of the season to focus on her coursework. Yes, Virginia, there is still such a thing as a student-athlete!
Senior Ben Stephens also had some of the best meets of his career over the past week, resulting in a 16th-place finish at Ski Brule and an 18th-place finish at Snowriver on Tuesday. Ben had outstanding Giant Slalom, and Super G runs in both meets to cap off a great career, exemplified by consistent improvement.
