Price Beane plans collegate
snowboarding in Nevada

Not one to walk in the footsteps of others, Braxton County High senior Price Beane chose his primary sport, snow-boarding, early. That choice has paid off as he recently signed a letter of intent to compete for Sierra Nevada College located near Lake Tahoe in Nevada. With this move, Beane has become unique among BCHS signees of all times. Others have signed with out-of-state schools, that’s true; no other, however, has signed to compete in intercollegiate snowboarding.
After being allowed “to choose his own path,” as his parents Sterling Jr. and Monica Beane noted, Beane went the route of snowboarding. He began his pursuit of what was at first a recreational activity “about 11 years ago,” but soon became interested in competitive racing.
