Shull cleans up at Loup’s snowboard races

— Zyan Shull of Winthrop swept to first place in all four of his slalom races at the fourth annual Loup Snowboard Races last weekend at the Loup Loup Ski Bowl.

Shull, who competes in the boys 10- 11-year-old class, won both giant slaloms Saturday and both slalom races Sunday.

“People traveled all the way from Olympia,” Loup snowboard coach Gene Shull said. “We had several repeat competitors to travel to our race. Our race is part of the Inland Northwest snowboard competition series. Kids and adults can qualify to go to nationals in Colorado in this larger series.”
