Local report: Garces grad Anspach a snowboard All-American

By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

SUN VALLEY, Idaho -- Garces High graduate David Anspach earned All-American honors for his 10th-place overall finish at the U.S. Collegiate Ski and Snowboarder National Championships.

Anspach, who competed for Fresno State, secured his All-American status by placing in the top 20 Saturday in the giant slalom.

"I feel great," said Anspach, who suffered a sprained knee Friday. "I'm kind of in shock right now."

The college senior said he will next compete as a professional with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, with the goals of qualifying for upcoming X-Games and Winter Olympics competitions.

Quincy Acy, on assignment from the Toronto Raptors, had a team-high of 17 points, grabbed nine rebounds.
