Mt. La Crosse event honors AJ Petras


LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - AJ Petras has become a recognized name in our area. He was killed last fall in a tragic shooting at May's Floral in La Crosse.

Well to honor his memory, Mount La Crosse--a favorite hangout of Petras'--hosted its first ever Spring Rail Jam March 9.

A rail jam is a competition where skiers and snowboarders perform as many tricks as they can in a set amount of time.

Three judges score their tricks, and the top three athletes win prizes.

The event was funded by the AJ Petras Fund.

Members of the Petras family came to the event, and later hosted a dinner in AJ's honor.
