The 2017 Bay of Plenty Secondary School Ski and Snowboard Championships at Turoa Ski Field went off without a hitch, giving the students a chance to showcase their skills in the snow.
KKC's sole entrant Stella Hamilton-Wallace competed in the Snowboard event. Stella pulled out on her first run in the Giant Slalom logging a DSQ but then completed the fastest time of the event on her second run in 40.77. Unfortunately the first failed run meant she could only finish with Bronze but to be the fastest on the slope was a fantastic achievement. She then competed in Slope Style and with a score of 47 took out the Silver. Congratulations Stella!
