CHS freshman places in VT State Ski Racing ChampionshipsBy Guest
On Sunday, March 4, Canton resident Damian Kozak placed 10th in a slalom race at the J3 Vermont State Ski Racing Championships. That finish helped qualify him for the Eastern Regionals held March 15-19 at Sugarloaf in Maine. There he was one of 85 racers from the East Coast competing for 10 spots at the U.S. Nationals. Kozak placed 22nd in Giant Slalom and 32nd in Slalom.
A freshman at Canton High School, Kozak has been racing since he was 7 years old. He currently races and trains with the Suicide Six race team, where he is the top racer for the J3 age group (13-15 year olds). Over the course of the regular winter season, he competed in Slalom, Giant Slalom and Super G races at various mid-Vermont ski areas, including Okemo, Killington, Middlebury, Pico, and Suicide Six.
