Skiers improve with every race
|The Alpine Ski Team raced under mixed conditions in their slalom race at Mr. Bachelor on Saturday, February 3. Skiers raced in misty rain, sun, and wind, and despite the weather, skiers continued to improve.|
Holland Hartman and Skylar Wilkins, the only two girls on the team, both improved their combined times. Hartman finished 32nd, and Wilkins was right behind her at 33rd.
"These girls are both getting closer to making the top 30 at each race," said Coach Gabe Chladek (see story, page 19). "The top 30 racers score points for the team."
On the boys side, Ethan Morgan missed a gate on his first run and did not score, but finished 29th on his second run, which scored two points for the team. Spencer Kemp, a senior racing for the first time, completed two good runs.
The boys combined finish order is as follows: George Chladek - 13th, John Banks - 43rd, Christopher Lundgren - 44th, Evan Palmer - 55th, Spencer Kemp - 56th, Conner Petke - 60th, and Ian Cash - 62nd.
The Redmond team coach, Mike Ricketts, said, "I think that was George's best Slalom run yet!"
The Outlaws will race in a giant slalom at Mt. Bachelor on Saturday, February 10.
