By From page A8 | April 09, 2014

CAMERON PARK — Michael Manson, a 13-year old Cameron Park resident, was invited to compete at the 2014 United States Amateur Snowboarding Association (USASA) Nationals in Slopestyle and Boarder Cross events that started April 1 in Copper Mountain, Co.

To qualify for the USASA 2014 National Championships, Manson earned multiple first and second place awards in Slopestyle and BoarderCross throughout 2014.

An avid snowboarder since age 3, this is Manson’s first year on a competitive team. He is coached by Tommy Burke and Brady Gunsch.

When asked what the secret to his first season’s success was, Manson said, “Hard work, dedication, excellent coaches, like Brady and Tommy, and support from local sponsors.”

Manson is a seventh grader at Pleasant Grove Middle School in Rescue.
