Local Snowboarder Headed to World University Games (295 words)

CAMPTON — "I want a double back flip for Italy," says Dan Rosen, a Campton resident referring to his participation in the 2013 World University Games to be held this December in Trentino, Italy.
He is one of eighteen collegiate athletes, ten men and eight women, who make up the Men's and Women's Snowboard Teams representing the United States at this prestigious international competition. These riders are full-time college students and exceptional snowboarders, each holding individual and team titles across several snowboarding disciplines, including halfpipe, slopestyle, giant slalom, and snowboardcross.
Dan graduated in 2010 from Plymouth Regional High School and Waterville Valley Academy (a school for student athletes that focuses on academics and snowsports training/competition). He is currently a Sophomore at Westminster College in Salt Lake
City, Utah and a member of the Westminster College Men's Snowboard Team.
Sara Beaudry, Team Manager of the World University Games U.S. Snowboard Team, says "These are dedicated athletes and serious college students who will make us proud. The one thing remaining in our quest for world recognition and world medals is the money we need to raise to get us all there. If we can't raise enough money as a group, each person who wants to go will have to pay the individual balance out of his or her pocket."
The team and its supporters are actively fund-raising. In addition to accepting individual donations, they plan to hold online raffles and online retail fund-raisers. The team is also seeking official corporate sponsors.
Anyone interested in making donations and/or corporate sponsorships can do so via the Paypal donation link on the Facebook page, by contacting Ms. Beaudry at WUGUSSnowboard@gmail .com, by calling (801) 832-2389, or by mailing a check to WUG US Snowboard Team, c/o Sara Beaudry, 3070 South 900 East, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84106.

Gilford's Tomlinson scores winning goal in national hockey championship

It was an incredible end to a very successful hockey season for Shayna Tomlinson as her Assabet Valley girls U19 Hockey Team won Gold at the Tier 1 USA Hockey National Championship. The tournament took place in San Jose, Calif. the first week in April. The best teams from the country qualified to compete in the championship tournament by winning a state title. It was a tough road to the championship game, especially when two of Assabet's best defensemen were injured in the first game of the tournament. The team was already down two talented forwards going into the championships. Despite these set backs, the team managed to outscore the opposition 21-1 in the first three games to qualify for the quarterfinals. They won two more hard fought games, (one game went into triple overtime) to reach the finals against Chicago Mission. Assabet went on to win
the final game 1-0. Tomlinson was able to score the only goal of the game shortly after the officials disallowed a goal that she had assisted. It was an incredible moment that she won't soon forget. Assabet Valley Girls Hockey program is based in Concord, MA. Girls from all over New England compete for spots on the team in addition to playing on their high school team.
Tomlinson is currently a junior at St. Paul's School in Concord, NH where she is a co-captain of the girls' varsity hockey team. The St. Paul's team had an outstanding season this year, ending with a 22-1-1 record entering the playoffs. Tomlinson was awarded the Independent School League, All-League award for her efforts this season. Shayna is looking forward to more success on the rink her senior year. She has also been recruited to play Division 1 hockey in college and has accepted an offer at a school in the northeast.
