Anglo Scottish Slalom

Ward dominates in Anglo Scottish Slalom


Isla Ward produced the performance of the day in winning the girls Slalom at the opening days race at the British Ski Academy organised Anglo Scottish Championships. The winning margin was over five and a half seconds for the product of Glasgow Ski Racing now racing for Apex. Ward showed the results of the hard work that she has put in already this season training in Tignes. Madison Spence took third in the Under 14 age group and James Hannan was also on the podium for the Scottish athletes in taking third in the Under 18 age group.


Ward was push hard on the first run by Tilly Black but raised her game on the second run to extend her lead. Emilia Ackerley placed fifth with Holly McKey taking eighth in the same age group.


The Under 14 girls race saw Madison Spence take third with Anneli Hawdon taking seventh and Lauren Rae eighth.


In the Under 12 girls race, the Ritchie sisters, Claudia and Gabriella took the top two places on the podium with Ellie Morrison taking fourth and Lara McLellan fifth in a strong Scottish showing. Paige Spence took runners up spot in the Under 10 race with Aurelia Ritchie in fourth and Mhari Foster fifth.


While James Hannan took third place in the under18 race, Fraser Hunter finished just off the podium in the Under 16 race in fourth with a much improved second run that kept him in the hunt for the overall places. In the Under 16’s race there were encouraging performances from Alistair Hale (7th), Joseph McKay (8th) and Jamie Anderson (9th).


Sebastian Ackeley and Matthew Hutchinson placed sixth and seventh respectively in the Under 14 race.


The Carrick Smith twins, Freddy and Zak, sons of Scottish multi Olympian Emma Carrick-Anderson, took the top two places in the Under 12 boys race with Hamish Blyth taking fourth. Lorcan Morrison and Miller Spence took second and third in the under 10 race.
