Parksville snowboarder Jacqueline Monette-Warren just misses podium spot at Canada Winter Games

Snowboarder took a fourth place finish out of 15 in the women's slop style competition in Prince Georg

Parksville’s Jacqueline Monette-Warren took to the slopes on Tabor Mountain, in Prince George B.C. for the Canada Winter Games, hoping to add to her impressive snowboard season and bring home a medal for Team B.C.

With 15 competitors in the mix for the women’s slope style competition at the Canada Winter Games, Monette-Warren was looking to continue the successful runs she’s had so far in the 2014-2015 snowboarding season.

Her first two runs saw Monette-Warren place fifth out of the field of 15, ensuring her a spot in the finals and a chance at finding her way to the podium. Heading into the final, Monette-Warren grabbed some big points, getting some massive air and pulling of some great tricks while stomping her landings.

Things looked good but ultimately, she missed out on the podium by a small point margin and finished in fourth place.

“We’re extremely proud of Jacquie,” said step mom Jennifer.

“Coming in fourth place in Canada is a great accomplishment and everyone, coaches and family, we’re all happy for her!” Monette-Warren will now travel to Big White Ski Resort for the next leg of the British Columbia Snowboard Association season, which happens to be the provincial finals, this weekend.

With another successful showing at the provincials, Monette-Warren could find herself back on the big stage for Junior Nationals.
