Here is a little video of some of the highlights of my year. I was able to go to some amazing places and had a very good year for competitions.
Canoe and Kayak Female Paddler of the Year
2nd in the Women’s division, Homestake Creek Race
1st Jr. Women’s Freestyle Nationals
3rd overall Women’s C1 U14 in the European Jr. Cup
1st Women’s C1 Slalom National Championship
3rd Women’s K1 Slalom Nationals,
1st in K1 and C1 Jr. Women’s Slalom Team Trials.
I also have had a lot of personal first descents including Homestake Creek, part of the Upper and Middle North Fork of the Payette, Great Falls Maryland Side of the Potomac, The Upper Cascades on the Nantahala, and Giant Gap on the NF of the American River as well as my first European slalom races in Slovenia, Germany and the Czech Republic.
I start next year with a bang in April when I attend the Slalom Jr. World Championships in Foz do Iguacu, Brazil, and hope to make the US Jr. Freestyle team so I can compete in Canada! Meanwhile, I am training hard and hope to see you on the river!
