Alpine skiers race at Mt. Bachelor
By Rongi Yost
Correspondent

The Alpine Ski Team raced well in the Giant Slalom race held at Mt. Bachelor on Saturday, January 20.

George Chladek and Kincaid Smeltzer led the Outlaws, and placed 23rd and 30th, respectively. George was awesome on his second run, and according to Coach Gabe Chladek deserves to be in the top group of skiers, and will be as long as he continues to develop his

technique.

Coach Chladek noted that Smeltzer was the most improved for the race, and moved up in the overall order to 30th, which was good enough to contribute points to the boys team score.

"Kincaid pulled off a strong second run," said Chladek. "He has a lot of previous skiing experience and he's starting to get the feel for the race course. His carves are flowing around the gates, and he's starting to ski the course more technically, and this is being reflected in his times."

Other finishers included: John Banks (55th), Christopher Lundgren (56th), Conner Petke (61st), Simon Rhett (63rd), Spencer Kemp (68th), and Corbin Johnson (71st).

On the girls side, Holland Hartman placed 32nd and Skylar Wilkins finished 37th.

Ethan Morgan skied in his first-ever high school race, and finished with a respectable 28th place on his first run, but did not finish his second run. Evan Palmer had a 33rd first-place finish, but did not score on his second run.

With the new snow that is forecast to fall this week, the team will look to get some on-the-hill training under the lights at Hoodoo before the team's slalom race on Saturday, January 27, at Mt. Bachelor.
