The Junior Bobsled program has ended for another season. Congratulations to Sarah Hart and Ryan Sweeney from the Whitehall Bobsled Club for taking first place for Junior Bobsled in the Empire State Winter Games. Bryan Berghorn and Dennis Lautenscwetz, of Lake Placid, took silver and Jacob Miller, from Cropseyville, and David Fox, of Troy, won the bronze.
Here are some pics of the final awards for Sunday's group of athletes. Sarah and Ryan won gold again, Andrew LeBlanc and Jeremiah Gillette took silver and Chris Lawless (our Grandson) and Ezra Gillette won bronze. Congratulations to all who participated in the Friday and Sunday groups and we'll be looking forward to seeing you next season as you work your way towards a future Olympics.
