CVA student is new National Champion in Youth Women’s Boarder Cross

For the second year running, Carrabassett Valley Academy student-athlete Acy Craig of Stowe, VT, went to the annual USASA championship events held at Copper Mountain, CO, with high hopes of a solid performance. In last year’s events, the then 7th grader, took home the top spot in her age class for Giant Slalom, and netted top 10 finishes in Boarder Cross, Slopestyle and Slalom to boot.

This year, at the ripe age of 14, she becomes a National Champion once again, this time in the coveted Boarder Cross event.

“Acy has been incredibly solid all year. She raked in four, first-place finishes, and a second-place podium in the Maine Mountain Series Boardercross competitions this season alone.” Said Snowboard Program Director, Alex Tuttle. “It’s amazing to watch such a young athlete with so much focus and composure in high-stakes competition, we are all obviously looking forward to seeing what she does in years to come, and couldn’t be prouder for everything she’s already accomplished.”
