Students ski to victory

Four Alton College students competed in the English Schools’ Ski Association National Finals event for the first time at the Norfolk Snowsports Centre in Norwich recently. The Alton College team consisted of Adam Bannister, previously at Eggar’s School, Dan Knight, previously at Bohunt School, Euan Chapman, previously at Weydon School and Ethan Sowik, previously at Amery Hill School. Competing in the U19 Boys category against teams from several private schools across the UK and Peter Symonds College, the boys undertook two runs each on the challenging slalom course. Adam came first in the age group, and Euan came second with one second difference between them, and as a team they won silver. This is the first time that Alton College have entered a team into the event – congratulations to all four boys.
