Alex Perkins of Fair Haven, a junior at RFH, is ranked the number one male skier aged 16-17 years old in New Jersey by the national NASTAR racing program.

Rumson – Alex Perkins of Fair Haven captured the first-place finish for male skiers aged 16-17 at the 2015 NASTAR Eastern Regional Championship held at Okemo Mountain in Vermont from Saturday, January 31 – Sunday, February 1. 

17-year-old Alex, a junior at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, attained his first place finish with a time of 20.96 — the fastest raw time of all skiers under the age of 21 during Saturday’s competition. This win qualified him for the 2015 NASTAR National Championship held at Aspen Mountain in Colorado.

A.J. Kitt, a former Olympian and World Cup Champion Skier, was the pacesetter for Saturday’s championship race – held on a sunny day that featured temperatures well below zero degrees. 

NASTAR currently ranks Alex as the number one male skier aged 16-17 in New Jersey, and he stands at number 43 in the NASTAR national rankings.

This is the third consecutive year that Alex has taken the podium at the NASTAR Regional Championship. He has qualified for competition in the NASTAR National Championship for six of the past seven years.

NASTAR is the world’s largest known recreational ski and snowboard race program. It allows racers of all ages and abilities to compare themselves with one another and with the national champion, regardless of when and where they race. Many U.S. Ski Team stars have competed in NASTAR programs. 

Alex is the son of Debbie and Bill Perkins of Fair Haven.
