GHS Ski Team State Champions Honored


The GHS ski team was honored by the Board of Education for winning the state championship. “On March 5, we traveled with a exceptionally respectable 19-6 record to Mt. Southington to our state championship,” said ski coach coach Lindsey Pontieri.¬† “What the other 13 teams didn’t know was that we would engage in a sneak attack.”

Pontieri said that Ridgefield, Staples and Fairfield Prep were focused on each other. “That gave us a chance to sneak in and surprise everyone with a first place win for the team,” Pontieri said, adding that¬† junior Joe DeMuyt, who joined the team this year, came in first overall in the race.

This state championship is the first in the history of the GHS Ski Team.
