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.”
