RACING IN THE ROLAND PEABODY SLALOM -- Six Whitefield School students raced at the Roland Peabody Slalom at Cannon Mountain on Feb. 23. This was the first time that WES fielded a team and participated in the race in many years. Shown, from left, are third-graders Zachary Porter, Maddi Savoy and Jocelyn Wyman, who participated in their first alpine races; sixth-graders Bella Cronin, Logan Rines and Colby James participated in middle school alpine races this winter. Cronin took second place in the girl's division in the morning slalom, and was invited to race the afternoon giant slalom. The team as a whole took ninth place, but the experience and presence was more important to the students. All six students are looking forward to participating next year, and the hope is to field as second team as well. Heather and Sandy Porter acted as gatekeeper and racer support respectively.
