Hemlock skiers tote medals home

Hemlock Ski Team members returned home with three medals after two days of competition in K2 (13-14 years) and J (15-16 years) levels at the 75th running of Mount Seymour Ski Club’s Enquist Ski Race, February 19/20. Leading the Hemlock Ski Team in the medal haul was Natasha Crick of Mission, who won a silver and bronze medal in the J category.  Nicholas Mitro of Surrey won a Most Improved Medal in Saturday’s slalom race by starting in 44th position and moving up 17 places to finish in 27th place against an elite group of skiers from Whistler, Grouse and other ski clubs.

Accompanying Natasha and Nicholas on the Hemlock Ski Team were Anders Liljedahl of Port Moody and Connor Liljedahl of Port Moody, both of whom put in solid performances on the challenging course.

Harold Enquist Junior, his wife Phyllis and granddaughter Margo were present to hand out the awards on Sunday, including trophies to Dimitri Djuricic (J1) from Grouse Tyee Ski Club, overall men’s winner, and Kelly Steeves (K2) from Whistler Mountain Ski Team, overall women’s winner.  Harold’s father built the first lodge at Mt. Seymour, cleared the first ski run and imported the first tow rope.
