Frankenburg named PCST Skier of the Month
February 8, 2013
With back-to-back wins at the Snowbird Intermountain Cup FIS slalom races in January, and an impressive fourth-place finish at the FIS Western Region Tech Series giant slalom at Park City Mountain Resort, Sophie Frankenburg has been named Park City Ski Team’s Skier of the Month. Gaddis Investments will donate $500 to the Park City Ski Team scholarship fund on Frankenburg’s behalf, helping deserving athletes participate in the alpine racing program, and allowing them to attend championship events that they have qualified for but otherwise could not afford to attend.
"Sophie is one of those athletes everyone wants to see succeed," said PCST alpine coach Craig Bowden. "She is a tenacious trainer and a fierce competitor, and she is also a supportive teammate with a terrific sense of humor and grace. She’s having a great season."
An eight-year veteran of the team, Frankenburg was recently accepted by St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York. One of the founding members of the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA), St. Lawrence has a well-established alpine racing program. Among the program’s alumni are Lindsay Cone, 2009 giant slalom alpine national champion, and Olympians Thomas Vonn and Marta Vastagh.
This is the second time the 19-year-old Frankenburg has been named PCST’s Skier of the Month. She also earned the honor in December 2011.
