The Twin Valley snowboarding team is getting ready for a fresh season, with 17 events scheduled over the next three months, and a larger team than in past years. Coach John Keegan is pleased to have 12 boarders, including Cassie Bratton and Jade Waters who will compete in girls events. Last year the team only had one girl competitor, Brittney Torroni

Keegan’s team will compete at Mount Snow, as well as travel to Bromley, Stowe, Killington, Jay Peak, and Okemo, to compete in giant slalom, slopestyle, pipe, and halfpipe events.

Keegan is pleased to have junior Tony Tarr back on the team, after he took a year off in 2012. Keegan says that while the team does not have captains, he expects Tarr and returning sophomore Morrow Bernard to be team leaders.
