Well done to Ross Taylor, S6, Zak Vinter, S3, Kate Taylor, S4 and Keri Anderson, S6 for winning the qualifying event at the Scottish Schools Dry Slope Series on Saturday. They will compete in the finals on November 12th.
Additionally, on the Sunday, the team won the Dry Slope Championships at Hillend. Mearns Castle took 1st and 2nd in the male category with Ross and Zak, respectively. Kate finished 2nd in the girls and Keri finished 5th. With over 180 skiers at the championships, this is an exceptional effort from our pupils.
