The student pilot was conducting solo circuits on runway 11 right. The sky was clear and the wind was from the east at about 10 kts, with a slight crosswind component. The pilot flew several circuits without incident. The final approach and touchdown were normal, but during rollout, the aircraft veered to the left and the pilot was unable to regain directional control. The nose landing gear collapsed, and the propeller and right wingtip struck the runway. It is likely that the pilot relaxed elevator control back pressure after the mainwheels contacted the runway, causing a rapid weight shift to the nose gear. The slight crosswind may also have contributed to the loss of directional control.
