Lloyd Woolman has won the Scott Dominguez Memorial trophy as best performed male skier for the 2013-14 racing season.
Echuca skier Lloyd Woolman joined esteemed company at last month’s Ski Racing Victoria presentation night in Melbourne.
Woolman accepted the Scott Dominguez Memorial trophy as best performed male skier for the 2013-14 racing season, adding yet another accolade to the 18-year-old’s long list of achievements.
Woolman followed on from district skier Zac Welch’s 2012-13 award and is no stranger to SRV’s night of nights, having won the most improved junior the same year.
‘‘I’m really happy with the award,’’ Woolman said.
‘‘We’ve had a really good year all the way through.’’
Woolman claimed the outright honour on the back of an outstanding racing season with team Thundernuts.
A combination of the newly-formed team and an increase in training helped Woolman, driver Cameron Cox, observer Brett Dominguez and fellow skier Mitch Mulcahy achieve some impressive results.
‘‘We put a better team together and have been training a lot harder,’’ Woolman said.
‘‘We all met each other through ski racing and all live on the same street.
‘‘It’s important to train away from the water, to get everyone used to each other and how we all race.’’
Thundernuts dominated the river races in the under 19 class, smashing the president’s dash and under 19 expert class records at this year’s Southern 80 and Mildura 100 respectively.
Behind the Tim Pickford-driven Sapphire, Woolman won all five of the point score series races, while also impressing behind Top Gun F2 in the unlimited outboard division.
Woolman also took out May’s Barry Carne Interstate Challenge in Wagga Wagga.
Woolman was accompanied by a table-full of mates, with the dinner held at the Melbourne Cricket Club dining room at the MCG.
Mulcahy shared the most improved honour with Colac’s Holly-Jade Praszczalek, while Pickford won best driver of the year award and Sapphire was considered the season’s best performed boat.
Race Marine’s Gary Butterworth won best observer, while Tayla Wright was judged female skier of the year.
