TeamMONASH Sends their Biggest Snow Sports Team Yet

With the largest team representing Monash University this year at the 2014 Snow Sports Australian University Champions, TeamMONASH has set their sights on gold.

In just under a week, over 40 students will compete in events including slopestyle skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding and freestyle events.

Director of TeamMONASH, Martin Doulton is proud to see how committed all the Monash University students are to represent the university at the Snow Sports.

"I am delighted that the 2014 Monash University AUC Snowsports team and I congratulate our sport manager, Zoe Gerardson for her leadership and coordination of the university's representation. I wish our team every success on the slopes," Martin said.

Sport Manager, Zoe Gerardson, is looking forward to taking the winning reins from The University of Melbourne, who won the 2013 Snow Sports event.

"I'm pumped for the event," said Zoe.

Zoe is a multi-talented athlete, having competed in the Alpine Giant Slalom, Boarder Cross, Boarder Cross and Snowboard PGS events in 2013 Snow Sports.

The competition runs from Wednesday 3 to Saturday 7 September at Victoria's own Mount Buller.

Ewa Potoczny is honored to be part of TeamMONASH and will be sticking to her sporting superstition of "...always paint (her) nails before race day".

Ewa won silver in the 2013 Alpine Slalom event, and just missed out on a medal in the Skier Cross and Alpine Super G events.

"I would definitely hope for a podium finish and to help Monash win the overall title," Ewa said.
