Subith, Donley, Hanna Named to 2022-23 WEST Team

This past spring, athletes were nominated to the WEST Team based on NDG (National Development Group) criteria. The National Development Group (NDG) is a pool of the best 15-20-year-old athletes in the country. Nominated athletes are recognized with an invitation to at least one National Development project during the preparation period, and they are the first athletes considered for invitations to NorAm Team projects. 

Following the summer prep period, evaluation of the athletes’ plans for this season, and passing the SkillsQuest-Fitness assessment this fall, SVSEF FIS Team athletes, Finnigan Donley, Colin Hanna, and Kai Subith, have been named to the 2023 W.E.S.T. Team. 

The Western Region Alpine Competition Committee (ACC) assists WEST Team athletes with financial support to help offset the expenses of regional or national competition projects throughout the season.

“Being named to the WEST Team is a huge accomplishment for Finnigan, Colin, and Kai,” said Gladys Weidt, SVSEF FIS Team Head Coach. “Competing at this level requires next-level commitment, focus, and drive to continue to perform in the sport, and we are incredibly proud of the work these young men continue to put in day after day in their quest to rise through the ranks and be the strongest ski racers they can be.”
