Matt Kalbacher from Ohio State has been an amazing captain. Although he is technically only captain of the men’s team, he made a huge difference for both the men’s and women’s team. He is always supportive and willing to help anyone with their trick skiing or slaloming. His responsibility in making sure everyone is up and where they need to be was so important to our team. We would not have been able to have a successful season without his leadership!
To one of the most caring, down to earth, and cheerful people I know, nobody else deserves this award more! This smile could light up any ski lake and demonstrated so many leadership qualities this season. Including last minute equipment fixes on the dock, powering through an ankle injury at conference to keep the team morale high, and working hard to help send her team off to nationals!
