L to R on podium: Reece Bell, Kaitlyn Harsch, Allie Resnick
For alpine ski-racing purposes, the USA is divided into three "regions": Western, Eastern, and Rocky/Central.
The Rocky/Central Championships, held recently at Vail / Beaver Creek, are contested by the best 14 and 15 year olds from Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Wisconsin.
Reece placed 2nd in the slalom, posting the fastest time on the second run.
As always, many thanks to Reece's sponsors:
