RBR SKIER TO COMPETE IN JUNIOR NATIONALS

r_reynolds_2014-5645066RBR senior and Little Silver resident Ray Reynolds will be at the USSA Junior National skiing competition in Park City Utah this month, as a freestyle men’s mogul skier.

Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

Red Bank Regional  senior and Little Silver resident Ray Reynolds will be competing this month with the nation’s top young freestyle skiers at the U. S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) Junior Nationals in Park City, Utah. The USSA is the governing body of Olympic skiing and snowboarding that develops and supports athletes for U.S. Olympic teams.

Ray’s specialty within freestyle skiing, men’s moguls, involves expert skiing technique down a steep course of moguls and executing aerial maneuvers off two jumps in mid-course.  The sport is scored on three criteria: speed, the ability to make perfectly executed turns straight down the mogul course and the difficulty level and execution of aerial “tricks.”

r_reynolds_backflip_2014-1854788While Ray has been skiing from a very early age, he has devoted much of his free time during his teenage years to honing his skiing skills by practicing and working during summers in the Olympic Training camp in Lake Placid and Whistler Mountain in British Columbia.  He has also devoted much of his winter weekends to competitions in the Northeast, which earned him this coveted opportunity. Amazingly, he has done this while maintaining an excellent academic record at RBR on the honor roll and as a Piano Major in the school’s Academy of Visual & Performing Arts, which involves many concerts and performances.

He is ecstatic about this opportunity in what is known in freestyle ski circles as the “Junior Olympics” stating, “I am so happy that my long days of practice on the slopes have paid off, and I am really looking forward to competing in Park City.”

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
