Ashley Humphreys ’18

Alpine Ski Racing

From Assistant U19 Girls’ Alpine Coach Anne Rockwell:
“Ashley Humphreys has been working hard this season and has had some great races these past two months. In January, Ashley took her first FIS GS podium, placing 2nd at the Clarkson University races at Whiteface. Ashley also competed well at the Devo FIS Sugarloaf Super G series earlier this month. She took a 6th and 9th place against tough competition from Canada and other US teams. Academically Ashley has been balancing her race schedule and classes well. No doubt she is very athletically and academically driven. I’m happy to nominate Ashley Humphreys for athlete of the month.”

Some of Ashley’s recent results:

  • 1/31 – 1st @ Eastern Region USSA SG
  • 1/28 – 2nd @ USCSA FIS UNI GS #2 @ Whiteface. 1st FIS podium for Ashley.
    (I don’t know when Gould last put a woman on a FIS podium. 1st place was current US Ski Team member Cecily Decker.)
  • 1/27 – 15th @ USCSA FIS UNI GS #1 @ Whiteface
  • 1/22 – 1st @ MARA SG #1 at Sunday River
    1/22 – 1st @ MARA SG #2 at Sunday River
  • 1/21 – 36th @ Colby Carnival FIS UNI
    (This might be the best result of all considering the quality of the competition.)
  • 1/14 – 6th @ MARA SL at Sunday River, 2nd for U19
  • 1/11 – 4th U19 @ Eastern Cup FIS SL @ Stratton
  • 1/10 – 5th U19 @ Eastern Cup FIS GS @ Stratton
  • 1/6 – 7th @ Colby Winter Classic USSA SL, 1st for U19

 

Daniel ”Boo” Buie

Varsity Boys’ Basketball

From Boys’ Varsity Head Basketball Coach Cory McClure: “As an eleventh grader, he has helped guide the boys’ team to new levels of competition within the NEPSAC. With his growing leadership, a victory over Gould has become a tough task. He raises the play of his teammates and that bodes well for the short-term and long-term success of the boy’s program.”

Boo drives the lane against Bridgton.
