It was a good weekend for the Laconia Youth Lacrosse U11 Boys team as they grabbed a couple of wins.

Leading the offensive charge for the young Sachems was attack Cole Roy with 4 goals and 2 assists. Evan "Papi" Carignan added a score while Gabe Brown and Cody Newman both recorded their first goals of the season. Defensively, Edgar Conroy and Jacob Mello were solid in front of Goalie Noah Potter, who turned aside 12 shots.

Two of Laconia's defensemen moved to middie and were able to score, as Zach Kitchen and Keith Corriveau notched their first goals of the year. The defense played a stifling man to man defense and shut down the Bedford attack. Mello, Corriveau, and Conroy put up a wall in front of Potter, who continued to improve in net turning back 16 shots. The Sachems handed Bedford a 13-2 loss while continuing to show great strides as a team.

GIlford middle schooler competes in Canadian-American Ski Championships

Gilford Middle School 7th grader Zoe Zimmermann finished off a strong 2014/2015 alpine ski racing season by taking first place in the Giant Slalom at the U-14 Eastern Alpine Championships held March 13-16, 2015 at Stowe, Vermont. This event features the top 80 twelve and thirteen year old ski racers in the Eastern United States. Zoe won by a large margin of over 3 seconds. In the Slalom event, Zoe's strongest discipline throughout the season, she "messed up", as she describes it, toward the bottom of both her first and second runs, finishing only one of them. However, her GS result qualified her in first position for the final event of the U14 Alpine season, the Canadian-American (Can-Am) Championships which was held in Mont Tremblant, Quebec March 26- 29, 2015. Only the best 70 U14 age female athletes from the U.S. and Canada qualify for the Can-Am. At Tremblant Zoe finished 6th in the Giant Slalom, one of only two U.S. racers to make the top ten in the GS. After a solid 5th place in the first run of the Slalom event – and the best U.S. finish - Zoe got late going into the final hairpin on the second run and fell before getting back up and finishing the run. She ended up 15th overall in the Slalom which was the fourth best overall Slalom finish for the U.S.

Athletes qualify for the Eastern Championships from their Region/State Championship Event with quotas determined by the United States Ski and Snowboard Association, (USSA). 17 N.H. female athletes qualified for the Eastern Championships from the NH State Championships held March 6-8, 2015 at Attitash Mountain with Zoe taking the top seed.

Zoe spends 5 months over the winter at Waterville Valley Academy where she is able to mix daily ski training and school. She was on snow over 100 days in 2014/2015.
