Snowboarder takes fifth in nationals
Tuesday, May 12, 2015 — The results are in. Adam Laboda, a 7-year-old Chester Elementary first-grader and avid snowboarder, did his hometown proud when competing in the USA Snowboard Association National Championships at Copper Mountain, Colorado.
“Adam did really great in slope style although he did not get in top 10 due to his pretty bad fall in the first run,” father Filip Laboda said. “He did, however, place fifth in the giant slalom and fifth in slalom.”
For the 2014-2015 season Adam trained on the Woodward Tahoe freestyle snowboard team, and competed in the USASA North Tahoe Series races.
