AUGUSTA, MEâ€“Corrina Cota, Taylor Morley and the rest of the U-16 Vermont Shamrocks will once again get a chance to compete for the Tier II National Title.
Cota and Morley, who were a part of a North Country team that competed for the D II title just days before, would play a big part in the Shamrock's success over this past weekend.
After falling a little short in their quest for the gold last season, the girls are taking an even better team to San Jose, California from April 2nd through the 7th for what they hope will be a better experience.
Ryan Hryckiewicz is finding success on the west coast, winning the first annual "Shoot The Moon" Event at the Mountain High Resort, just outside of Los Angeles, CA.
Ryan, and the second place winner, Will Mayo, hopped in Mayo's car and hit the road, just days before the event.
"Approximately 4 or 5 hours of planning ahead went into it," Hyrckiewicz said.
Upon their arrival, they visited with sponsors, competed in the event, and won.
Hryckiewicz, and his Switch Back Rodeo 9, walked away with the win and $2,000 cash for the Menâ€™s Open Snowboard Division.
Mayo finished second.
