Lightning Series Results after 5 Races

We are now 5 races into The Lightning Series and the standings are getting interesting as athletes start to drop their worst scores and only count their best results. Its looking like quite a battle at the top of the boys with Bayley Olds, Esteban Plata from the Tijuana Team, Hayden Stone and Evan Truesdale. But lets not discount Gradon Church and Noa Hopper who are fast moving up the ranks also. On the girls side Josie Ballard just streaked into the lead with Alejandra Valdez and Jennett Rivera from Tijuana in 2nd and 3rd.

Garen Doyle stands on top of the table for the U19 Boys racing in The SOCAL Winter Race Series for the chance at winning an EPIC KAYAKS V10 Sport Surfski! He is followed by Michael Lowe of San Diego. Michael and Garen frequently race K2 together and both attended the USA Canoe Kayak Junior National Team Training Camp at The Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista last October.
On the ladies side Hanieh Khatibi is fast establishing herself as the leader and the favourite to win the VALHALLA  Surfski. She is closely followed by Lexie and Sydney Bohlman. The Bohlman girls have already won an Epic and Valhalla each and are always at the top of the tables in the surfski races.
