Logan Schwartz - State Champion Spotlight

When I was in the start gate, I was only thinking of how I could execute the plan that I came up with while inspecting the course in the fastest way possible.
4)  What do you contribute your success to? First and foremost, I contribute the foundation of my success to the many years I spent training and racing USSA when I was younger with Shawnee Peak Race Team and then with the Gould Academy Competition Program. I also spend a lot of my time in the off-season doing strength training in the gym.
5)  What are your goals/plans for next year?  My goals for next year are to place better at the Easter Championship and help our high school win another state championship like we did in 2022.
6) What surprised you the most about this season?  The biggest surprise from this season was the number of races that we were able to fit into the regular season given the slow start due to the weather. The Pleasant Mountain Race Department did a good job with scheduling as they do with all races.
7) What moment/event will you remember the most from the season?   The moment that I will remember most from the season was the experiences with the Maine State Team during the Eastern Championship. In particular, cheering on my teammates at the bottom of the course. We all stayed after our runs to cheer each other on until we had all finished. It was a really great group to be teammates with.
8) What do you like most about Alpine Skiing?   The thing I like most about Alpine Skiing is being out there with people you like and having a great time. It%u2019s always a fun, yet competitive environment. 
9) Anything else that you would like to add?   There have been many people who have helped me get to this point such as my coaches from the Shawnee Peak Race Team and Gould Academy Competition Program. I also feel fortunate to have had years of support from my parents and those of other racers. Particularly my dad who makes sure my skies are well-tuned and is always out on the hill with the team providing encouragement.
