Glenville Hills Nordic’s Eric Seyse captured the overall NYSSRA Points Series Championship amassing 444 points in 13 of the 23 scored events this season.  Eric had a fantastic season which included a second overall place in the Champions Cup Race.  Eric also had four race wins this season, victorious in the Holland Patent Classic, the Dewey Mt Freestyle, the Winona Forest Try-it and the Winona Forest Tourathon.  Eric has traditionally raced well and often, as he was also the 2009-10 overall points series champion.

The highest scoring woman was HURT Nordic’s Kathy Schwenk, competing in 6 scored events.  The top juniors were HURT Nordic’s Brian Halligan and NYSEF’s Nina Armstrong.  Peru Nordic’s Jerry Curcio skied in the most events, with results in 15 scored races.  These skiers were part of the elite NYSSRA Red Group who were rewarded with a nice Toko/NYSSRA red ski touque for their efforts:
