Kaleb Continues His Streak! On to State!

Kaleb ran the Regional meet at Nub's Nob north of Harbor Springs on Thursday. Brandon was able to go and  told us that Kaleb hip checked on the first run of the GS (that is he started to fall but was able to bounce back up), so it was a slower time. However, his second run was almost a full second faster than any of the field so he finished 5th. He then had to flawless runs in the slalom, for first place. The entire Boyne City boys team is going to the State competition at Marquette in a little over a week.

Here are some quotes from Kaleb in the Petoskey News-Review:

Kaleb McNamara, who won the boys’ slalom in 1 minute, 8.30 seconds, said he was proud of Boyne’s performance.

“It feels awesome,” McNamara said. “We haven’t done this as a team in a while so it feels good.”

“We were all pretty nervous, but we were determined to win it as well,” McNamara said. “All our guys stood and we were consistent on both runs. We skied pretty decent.”
 WooHoo!!! Way to go Kaleb!
