Meghan Hopkins taking gold in her first Special Olympics

Submitted by Meghan Hopkins, ASF Race Team Member

On Saturday March 5, 2011, I went to the New York State Special Olympics for the first time. It was awesome. I had so much fun with all of the other team members.

While we were waiting to start the race I met some new skiers and snowboarders. We had a good time throwing snowballs. I had a good time getting hit with snowballs, too.

The race was very exciting. It was the first time I went snowboarding on a mountain other than Windham. I did very well and won the gold medal. I want to thank Zach Elder for introducing me to snowboarding and for cheering for all the competitors and me. Thanks to all the coaches; YOU ARE THE BEST!
