Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 Up & Coming Scholarship: Kye Matlock and Kailey Bogart!
Kye Matlock is a big mountain skier out of Crested Butte, Colorado. He has skied his whole life and began competing in alpine racing. Kye loves to ski all disciplines but big mountain is his favorite as it allows him to be creative and express himself. Last season he was ranked 9th overall in the US and his goal this year is to be in the top 5. Kye also plays soccer, is part of the National Honors Society at school, and is passionate about preserving our pristine environment so that generations of kids can enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Congratulations Kye! We are excited to see what you do this season!
Kailey Bogart is a surfer and snowboarder from Hawaii. When we caught up with her to tell her the news, she was busy training for the Rev Tour in Colorado and she wants to be the youngest girl to a double back flip on snow. Kailey is one of the hardest working athletes we’ve ever seen. She has X Games and Olympic dreams and has more podium finishes than we can write here!
She wants to an “ambassador of hope, love and inspiration” to other young athletes. Does she remind you of anyone else? Congratulations Kailey! We’re so glad to name you a winner, good luck this season.
