Sam was awarded "Rookie of the Year" for the SnowBasin Alpine Ski Team. Other accomplishments include solid finishes at a number of JO qualifying races including a 69 point finish on the GS course to help qualify her for the Western Region FIS Finals, Park City, Utah. Another highlight for Sam was racing at the Loveland Derby, Colorado with strong finishes to end the year on a positive note. Nicely done Sam!
