Steamboat Springs It was a good weekend for the members of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club's snowboard program as the local team dominated a Snowboarder Outreach Society boardercross event held in Breckenridge.
The event, a qualifier for the U.S. Amateur Snowboarding Association's Nationals, drew 130 riders from across the region on Saturday. The winners earned a spot to the Nationals, which will be held in Mammoth Mountain, Calif., March 19-25.
The highlight of the day came when Steamboat Springs rider Charlie Peddie won the 10-11 boys division.
The finish came as a surprise to the local coaches since this was Peddie's first competition because suffering a broken clavicle several weeks ago.
Other local winners included Blake Eddington, who topped the 8 to 9 boys division, and Tori Koski-Carrigan who won the 14 to 15 girls division and the women's open.
Steamboat's Luke Trembath topped the podium in the 14 to 15 boys divisions. He was followed closely by teammates Mike Antalek in second and Niles Nelson in third.
Steamboat's Scott Stanko finished second in the 12- to 13-year-old boys division. He was followed across the line by Cody Kurowski in third and Brad Saunders in fourth.
Steamboat's Emily Robinson finished her first boardercross event in third place in the girls 12- to 13-year-old division.
