Islay Sheil Makes the Junior Nationals Team

The Salisbury Winter Sports Association  (SWSA)  witnessed another leap forward in its junior jumping program when Islay Sheil was named to the Junior National (JN) team on Sunday of Jumpfest 2024. The Lakeville 14 year old, who has been training with Team SWSA since 2021, received the honor along with 20 other jumpers from around the Eastern division, joining Seth Gardner and Ariel Picton Kobayashi as the only local jumpers to reach JN status in recent memory.

Seth made the JN teams in 2018-2021 seasons and Ariel in 2004 and 2005. Islay will leave for Anchorage, Alaska February 24th to compete in the 2024 Junior Nationals.
