O’Brien, Putnam win NESS stop No. 2

Brendan O’Brien and Bill Putnam won the Junior and Adult divisions, respectively, at the second stop of the 2019 Northeast Slalom Series last weekend at John’s Lake.

With the win Brendan increased his lead in the Junior division season standings, while the Adult season standings remain largely unchanged since the series’ first stop at Twin Lakes. Click here to view the complete season standings.

The third stop of the series, next weekend’s Pre-Regionals at Avon, will offer a big pot of NESS points to skiers as it is expected to be the second-largest field of the year, behind the Regionals later this month.

Click to enlarge.

J.J. Paulovich served up some home cooking at last weekend’s Twin Lakes Spring 3-event tournament to take an early lead in the Adults division of the 2019 Northeast Slalom Series.

J.J.’s top score of 4 buoys at 38-feet off (1,000 NOPS points) was good enough to top a 14-skier Adult division.  Dan Warner (986 NOPS points) finished a half buoy behind J.J. to finish second on the day, while defending 2018 NESS season champion Dana Hinman (877 NOPS points) and Shannah Pochin (720 NOPS points) rounded out the top-four.

In the Junior division, Brendan O’Brien scored 2 at 28 off (805 NOPS points) to take the win and earn 30 NESS points.

NESS Stop No. 2 will take place June 29th at John’s Lake in Wantage, NJ. At the conclusion of the seven-stop series, the top 12 adults and four juniors will qualify for the series championship, August 31st at Pangaea.

The 2019 series will feature two divisions of competition – Adults and Juniors – using NOPS points to level the playing field among speeds and determine placements.

NESS registration fees cover the finals cash prize and very minimal series costs such a points tracking, banners, website development, etc. Every cent raised by entry fees and sponsorships will be put back into the series.

In 2018, Dana Hinman and Sage Pottbecker took home the adult and Junior division titles, respectively.
