The Scots College Snowsport Champions – again

The Scots College continues to prove itself as the preeminent Australian Snowsport School with its Prep and Senior teams defending their Australian Championship titles for the eighth and seventh consecutive years respectively.

The Snowsport teams' performance through each division of the Championship certified the College's winning of the 2014 SSA Snowsport School of the Year Award in May.

The Prep team achieved first place in both the Sydney division in July and at the NSW Interschool Snowsports Championship in August. At the National Championship in September the boys defeated the opposition winning for an unprecedented eighth consecutive year.

Tom Weinert, the 2014 Scots Preparatory School Snowsports Team Captain said "It was another great year on the slopes for the Prep School and we won the Australian National Interschool Overall Male Championship Title for the eighth year in a row! All the boys did really well and I am so happy to be on the team with them."

The Senior School team succeeded in defending their championship title in the Sydney and NSW divisions. At the National Championships the boys competed against 150 schools, comprising of nearly 2,500 competitors over five days to claim the Championship for the seventh consecutive year. The end of the Championship saw The Scots College victorious with a tally of 230 versus second place Melbourne Grammar's tally of 117 and other local Sydney school, Cranbrook's 84.

A special mention to Josh Stevens, Andrew Richardson, Ben Matsumoto and Max Hough from the Senior School team who were all named individual champions in their fields. Josh Stevens now also holds the National Championship record for any athlete for winning six team gold medals as well as individually winning one gold and two bronze.

Coming off these results, the Snowsports team has once again been invited to represent Australia at the 2016 International Children's winter games in Innsbruck, Austria.

This season, the Snowsport team and The Scots College Snowsports Association showed why the College is at the forefront of Snowsports in Australia. Mr Andrew Kovari, Director of Snowsports at The Scots College said "All the boys should be congratulated for their brilliant performances and their outstanding sportsmanship throughout this season. They have done their School proud, representing the College with distinction and their combined achievement places them in a class of their own!"
