I raced at the Mokelumne races in September and placed first in both the down river race and the slalom course in the cadets class. I got to paddle with my friend Ben Young who is also a good kayaker. He is trying to get a slalom boat too! The next weekend I raced in the Feather river races where we had a very interesting course. I placed first in cadets again in the slalom races and paddled with my friend Molly, who is the daughter of Dave Steindorf, our American Whitewater representative. I also ran Carl's Kitchen, the biggest rapid on the Rock Creek section. It was lots of fun! The races are over for the year, but I hope to continue paddling all through the winter.
