DHS ski team wins again

From page B3 | January 16, 2013 |

The Davis High School ski team racers, coaches and volunteers proved their mettle Monday at the giant slalom race at Sugar Bowl. “Miserable,” is coach Bob Brewer’s summary. “That’s probably the best word to describe the conditions for (Monday’s) race.”

The temperature registered zero degrees with strong, icy 40-mph winds bringing the effective temperature to -29 degrees.

Regardless, the skiers won their second race of the season, continuing their dominance in the division. Davis took first place with 422 points based on the finishes of the top racers. Nevada Union came in second with 384. Colfax was third (362), followed by Del Oro (182).

Scored separately, the girls and boys teams each finished on top. DHS girls took first, scoring 214 points. Colfax followed in second with 190, followed by Nevada Union in third with 189 and Del Oro in fourth with 38. Davis boys won with 208 points. Nevada Union earned 195, Colfax earned 72, Del Oro 144, Quincy 136 and Placer 30.

Alix Graves topped the timesheets for DHS varsity girls. She secured second place with a two-run combined time of 2:05.66. Lily Wolfe took third place with a total time of 2:07.33. Close behind was teammate Natalie Serdahl, who completed two strong runs in 2:07.53 and placed fourth. Clara Goin finished fifth in 2:11.50, and Miranda Steidler finished in 2:18.26, taking the 10th position. Steidler’s time may be adjusted due to a perceived timing error most likely due to the inclement weather. Her time currently stands, and an adjustment is not expected to affect team race results.

For varsity boys, DHS’ Daniel Safford was affected by a similar timing error, suspected to be caused by a large snow drift triggering timing equipment prematurely. For now, Safford’s two-run combined time is recorded as 2:04.68, good for second place. Derek Pleasants finished two consistent runs in a total of 2:05.87 to take third place. Mark Unger finished in seventh with a total time of 2:12.34, very closely followed by Jack Beckman in eighth in 2:12.38. Miles Wong earned the 10th spot with a total time of 2:17.99.

Davis dominates the junior varsity girls competition this year. DHS swept the top 11 spots on Monday. First in for DHS was Lauren Smith. Smith completed her two runs in 2:24.49 and took first place. Serena Roberts earned second place with a total time of 2:29.96. Shannon Segall took third (2:30.81), Nina Shields placed fourth (2:36.87) and Kerry Boyers placed fifth (2:38.48). Also placing in the top 10 were Megan Kowta, Emily Jonsson, Sophie Chertok, Cassidie Bates and Maddie Asta.

Davis’ Tyler Powell was the first-place finisher for junior varsity boys, coming in with a two-run combined time of 2:24.84. He was followed by Justin Reno in second place with a total time of 2:26.22. Bruno Ferenc-Segedin came in fourth in 2:26.74, Tom Bergamaschi took fifth (2:29.35) and Chris Daunt was sixth (2:29.58). Also in the top 10 were Riley Gibson-Graf, Marshall True and Evan Davis.

Weather depending, the next race will be Monday at Northstar.
