A PUPIL at Rydal Penrhos School in Colwyn Bay has been rewarded for his skiing progression with a selection to the Welsh Development Squad.

Cameron Pye impressed selectors during a series of competitions.

The Year Nine pupil finished second at the CESA Club National in Swadlincote, with the ambitious skier also acquitting himself well at the Welsh National and British Championships.

The event, which took place at the Llandudno Snowsports Centre, was another worthwhile outing for Cameron.

He finished seventh overall in the boys’ U16 category across both days and second in the year of his birth.

Cameron was the fourth Welsh skier in his age category on Saturday and first in his year of birth.

These results have helped him to edge closer to being selected for the full Welsh Ski Squad, which Rydal Penrhos’ Year 13 pupil Chay Bonnington accomplished after months of hard work.

There was further cause for celebration with another podium finish for Cameron at the North Wales Snowsports Club’s first Club National race in Llandudno.

He came joint-third in his category and joint-first for his year of birth.

His team also came fourth in the dual slalom cash prize race in which they had two dramatic dead heat finishes, which are particularly rare.
