Maximus Metzgen, a third-grader at Wagner Ranch, came in fourth overall in the USASA (USA Snowboard Association) National Championships held at Copper Mountain, Colorado.
The USASA Freestyle Ski championship was held on full size features, including SkierCross, Half-Pipe and Slopestyle. Metzegen performed tricks 30 feet above ground in the 22-foot half-pipe during the championship.
Heavy snow on the last day of the championships hampered Metzgen's chances in the National Slopestyle competition.
Metzgen was crowned North Tahoe Slopestyle champion during three months of qualifying tournaments, making him eligible for the national competition.
