What can we say? The kids had a stellar performance at the USA Climbing SCS Junior National Championships in Atlanta. In the overall team championship standings we took 2nd place in the nation; something that we have not done before in sport climbing. Matty Hong placed 1st in difficulty in what is his final year as a junior competitor, moving up 7 places from last year. Elly Czajkowski placed 4th in both difficulty and speed. Both of them will be representing the United States in the Junior World Cup this fall in Edinburgh, Scotland. Dallas Milburn turned in a strong 8th place finish along with Abby Czajkowski who placed 11th overall. In addition both Remi Arata and Mica Hartman turned in strong performances; Remi having made it to his first National competition and Mica having turned in her best performance to date.
No time to rest though. It’s time for the kids to get ready for their summer team trip to Europe. This year we will be traveling to Spain for paellas and steep limestone! Stay tuned. . . .
