IPCS athletes see success

Three young athletes from Indian Peaks Charter School competed this past weekend with one athlete taking a second and a third place.

Sane Schuessler, 10, participated in the King of the Grommets terrain park ski competition at Winter Park Resort and placed second in his age group on Saturday and third on Sunday.

"It was what I've been training for," Schuessler said.

Schuessler, who has been skiing with his mother, Cheryl, since he was two years old, has been training to compete in mogul competitions since 2006 and for the terrain park since 2010, he said.

Schuessler took the second place spot on Saturday during the terrain park competition with his first run by coming off of a box switch and continuing into a switch 180 off of the top jump and finishing off the run with a 360 cross. His second run on Saturday sealed the deal when he completed a switch 180 into a 360 cross tail grab.

On Sunday, Shuessler nabbed the third place spot in the mogul competition with good style and form and completing a spread eagle as his air trick.

Two other Indian Peaks Charter School students competed in the first of the East Grand Middle School's Nordic Team's first meet of the season, which was held in Steamboat Springs.

Neva Meindl, 11, and Deana Camm, 12, raced against some 70 other girls from Boulder, Summit, Aspen, and Steamboat Springs.

The girls finished the 2.5 km skate ski race, despite the temperature being a chilly zero degrees.

The athletes from Indian Peaks showed some great talent during these events so keep your eye out for these young skiers as they will be continue to compete across the state throughout the rest of the winter season.
