Five CVA athletes to represent the U.S. at Junior World Championships
Carrabassett Valley Academy is pleased to announce the following athletes who have all earned the honor of representing the USA at this year’s FIS Junior World Championships: Rollie Zagnoli ’14 (boardercross) , Keegan Kilbride ’14 (park & pipe skiing), Nessa Dziemian ’12 (moguls), and Mike Hayes from the CVA Weekend Program (skiercross).
This major event will bring together the top junior competitors from across the globe to Valmalenco, Italy between March 26th and April 6th. Competitors are invited based on their cumulative results throughout the season.
The results from the Junior World Championships will determine the best overall junior competitors in each discipline and age class. The event is also a proving ground for those athletes that aspire to train and compete for their national teams.
In addition to the above athletes, 2013 graduate Sam Morse qualified for the FIS Alpine Junior World Ski Championships which took place in Jasna, Slovakia in early March. Morse earned a 7th place finish overall, 2nd in his U18 age group.
“We are extremely proud to have five athletes from five different disciplines qualify for Junior Worlds this year,” said CVA Head of School Kate Webber Punderson. “This is the most substantial representation we have ever had for these events.”
