Middleton's girls and boys snowboard teams made the most of a shortened season and celebrated tremendous successes at the WIARA State competition recently.

The girls earned their fifth consecutive state championship and the boys finished third overall.

The girls started strong in the Boardercross event featuring banks, turns, and rolling jumps. After taking first as a team in BX, the girls never looked back, building on their leads as a team and finishing strong in Slalom with all six girls placing in the top 14 slots.

Team captain and senior Ella D'Orazio helped lead the Cardinals to a title by finishing second individually.

The boys demonstrated the team nature of the competition by keeping consistent finishes in all disciplines as a group and finished strong in the Slalom. The combined points from the races helped the Cardinals finish third as a team.

Dylan Veit, also a senior and team captain, took home first place individually and was the only competitor to place in the top-three in all disciplines.
