Two more victories for Lauren
Reigning Under-15 national grand slalom champion Lauren McKay is the midst of another outstanding snowboarding season.
The 14-year-old from Stoney Creek won two USASA (United States Snowboard and Freeski Association) Western New York races in Ellicotville on Saturday.
Two more races, planned for Sunday, were rained out and will be shifted to Mansfield Ski Club this weekend as part of a Snowboard Ontario roster of races.
McKay, also trained informally with the Canadian junior national snowboard racing team in Collingwood two weekends ago.
The American and Canadian Nationals are being held during the same week in early April, hundreds of kilometres apart. McKay wants to defend her national title in Quebec and if she continues to place well in USASA events, will be invited to the U.S. championships in Colorado, as well.
