Our own Anna Mounsey won the overall U18 National Championship today after racing to victory in today's downhill at Mammoth Mountain, California.
Anna has had a great week at the Mammoth, finishing 3rd in the slalom and 2nd in the GS. With today's victory in the downhill, Anna clinched the overall title with the best combined performance.
Jane Mounsey, Anna's Mom, said, "Over the moon would be an understatement" for Anna's excitement.
TAS hosted the first annual Cascade Cup at Alpental this past weekend, and our coaches and volunteers put on a wonderful, well run event. Mother Nature helped with great snow and beautiful weather. But the TAS athletes were the real stars!

With a first place finish in the GS and a second in slalom, Aili Moore captured the overall U12 Cascade Cup Championship. Aili's victories, combined with superb performances from Carina Ashe (3rd in GS), Anna Troje (4th in slalom, 11th in GS), and Emma Ireton (7th in slalom), propelled the TAS girls to win the overall Cascade Cup girls team championship.

After Anna’s exciting win at the national championships, I’ve had a chance to catch up with Anna while she’s away between races and to have her tell us about the race and a bit about herself.
You're coming off of an impressive win at the nationals. Can you tell us about the experience?
I went to Mammoth. We drove down the 18-hour drive to Mammoth from my house with myself, a teammate, and my mom.
