Butternut Race Report

Greetings,
 
Catamount racers kicked off, or more appropriately, kicked out of the start gate with a contingent of 97 competitors at the first race of the season. This total far surpasses any previous turnout for the season’s opener.  Fifty one boys and 46 girls were up for the challenge provided by Butternut’s GS course.  29 (30% of total) racers earned top 5 recognition.  When separated by gender, honors go to 17 girls  (37%) and 12 boys (24%) respectively.  Girls managed to place a team member from each age bracket (total of 7) on top of the podium.  Boys secured a podium rung in 6 out of their 7 brackets.  
 
When extending our focus to top 10 finishes, our racers demonstrated parity with 25 girls and 24 boys respectively achieving this status (49 total or 51%).
 
Vying for a sweep of top 5 finishes in the girls division were U8s and U12s.  Four racers from each bracket landed on the podium.  On the boy’s side, U13-15s narrowly missed a top five sweep with 3 podium qualifiers.
 
The day was fault free with 0 DNFS and DQS. 
 
Over the past several years, Catamount racers have consistently captured honors for the fastest time of the day.  Matthew Glatt kept the tradition alive by posting the fastest boy’s time of the day.
 
Koodos to coaches and parents for the ongoing support and commitment to make IC 2016-17 race season another successful one.  Rain, sleet, sparse cover, you name it, our race family has demonstrated that perseverance and an optimistic attitude can over come adversity.  Across all age groups, our racers have demonstrated improvement in both their technical prowess and tactical race savy.  Looking forward to another record setting attendance for our home race.
 
Regards,
