In the Spring term, 17 of Harrodian’s fastest ski racers set off to the slopes of Les Houches, France, to participate in the Slalom and Giant Slalom events at the 2015 British Interschool Ski Challenge.
Our Harrodian skiers performed exceptionally well with Ludovico Ferrario (9F) clinching 8th place in the U10 Boys’ Slalom and Alex Richards (12GO) achieving a personal best of 14th place out of 54 competitors in the U14 Boys’ Giant Slalom. Luna Banon (10L) skied her way into 13th place in the U12 Girls’ Giant Slalom with her older sister Cosima (12GR) achieving 16th place in one of the U14 Girls’ Giant Slalom races. Two of our long-time Harrodian School Ski Club members also achieved impressive results: Sebastian Egan (10W) with 22nd place out of 61 competitors in the U12 Boys’ Giant Slalom and Helena Lachowicz (14B) finished a very impressive 12th place in the U16 Girls Giant Slalom event.
Later in June, Harrodian also hosted its own internal ski championships at Hemel Hempstead indoor ski centre and awarded the following pupils: Cosima Banon (12GR), 1st place, Sebastian Egan (10W), 2nd place, and Alessandro de’Costanzo (9B) 3rd place.Congratulations to all our skiers on their achievements.
