CVES Regional Olympics–Plank Results

Happy New Year everyone!

A big shout-out to the Beekmantown Central School who won the District Participation Award for the second month in a row with 32 participants.  Great job Eagles!  A total of 67 people participated in this event!

Goodness gracious!  For the second year in a row, Plattsburgh’s Cassie Sellars and AuSable’s Heather Gottlob have posted absolutely incredible times in the Woman’s 40 and Over category.  Cassie won the Gold Medal and Heather won the Silver Medal with times of 42:00 and 41:20 respectively.  Talk about “gutting out” a victory!  Simply amazing!  I also want to recognize Boquet Valley’s Lorraine Hathaway for her 18:04 in the Woman’s Under 40 category.  Fantastic stuff!
