As of late, HoliMont athletes who have moved on to the next levels of their competitive careers have been doing HoliMont very proud! Recently, at the 2015 Canada Winter Games, HoliMont alumni Robbie Andison, Maddie Radvanyi, Griffin Haines and Jennifer Hawkrigg, just to name a few, are all excelling in their respective fields.
Competing on icy conditions on Feb. 18, Ontario freestyle skier Robbie Andison showed tremendous poise (at age 17) to take the dual moguls event gold medal when he defeated Quebec’s Alexandre Lavoie in the final.
Team Nova Scotia won its first silver medal of the 2015 Canada Winter Games on Feb. 24 when Maddie Radvanyi competed in the women’s parallel giant slalom snowboarding event.
Griffin Haines from Oakville took home Ontario’s first gold medal in snowboard at the 2015 Canada Games. Riding the parallel giant slalom course at Purden Mountain, Haines was able to take control of the field early on and walk away victorious.
Haines’ upcoming travel schedule is intense, as he will be heading to Yabuli, China, next week to compete in the FIS Snowboard Junior World Championships. Then he will be competing in the Canadian Snowboard Nationals in Le Relais, Quebec.
Jennifer Hawkrigg also will be attending the FIS Snowboard Junior World Championships in China with Haines. We are looking forward to seeing their results.
Best of luck to all the HoliMont athletes, no matter where you are in your competitive careers. We wish you success and look forward to hearing about where your travels take you next!
