New York State Senator Catharine Young presented resolutions to the Ellicottville girls’ alpine ski team for winning the New York State Public High School Athletic Association’s Alpine Team Championship.
Freshman twin sisters, Hayly and Logan Fredrickson, both finished in the top 10 in the slalom and giant slalom during competition at Bristol Mountain Ski Resort in Canandaigua in February.
Ellicottville eighth-grader CeCe Carls sealed the team’s score, taking 39th in the slalom and 40th in the giant slalom.
“Congratulations to Hayly, Logan and CeCe,” Young, R-Olean, said. “This is the second state championship Hayly and Logan have helped win for Ellicottville. They are top competitors and they prove that Ellicottville is home to some of the best skiers in the state.”
Young said because the Fredrickson twins are just starting their high-school careers and CeCe will be a freshman next year, they will have many more opportunities to bring state titles back to Ellicottville.
“The Ellicottville girls’ alpine ski team has many great years of skiing ahead of them,” she said. “Their coaches, families and community should all be very proud of them.”
