The Davis High School ski team won the first race of the season Monday at Northstar. Davis competed in the giant slalom against five other high schools, all of them closer to the mountains, and proved to be the fastest team.

Coach Bob Brewer was pleased with the first victory.

“It’s a great way to start,” he said. “It reminds the racers that we have a strong team, and that if they work hard it can pay off when we compete on the hill. This win will give them the confidence they need.”

Davis earned 405 points, followed by Nevada Union High School, which earned 399. Colfax High School came in third with 374 and Del Oro High School was fourth with 182.

Scored separately, DHS girls came in first with 214 points, followed by Colfax with 191, Nevada Union with 189 and Del Oro with 33. DHS boys placed second behind Nevada Union, which finished with 210 points. Davis earned 191, followed by Colfax (183), Del Oro (149), Quincy High School (81) and Placer High School (78).

Leading Davis varsity girls was Natalie Serdahl, who finished in a strong second place. The total time of Serdahl’s two fast runs was 2:03.70. Teammate Alix Graves took the third spot with a two-run combined time of 2:04.69. Davis’ Lily Wolfe finished in fourth in a very close time (2:04.81). Clara Goin was fifth (2:06.54) and Stephanie Scott finished in sixth (2:08.71).

Davis’ varsity boys were led by Derek Pleasants, who placed second in both of his runs, ending with a second-place finish in 2:05.47. Mark Unger was the next DHS racer in, taking a personal-best eighth in a total time of 2:17.63. Teammate Daniel Safford finished in 12th (2:20.54), and sophomore Davis Perez, in his first varsity race, placed 15th with a two-run combined time of 2:22.62. Freshman Jack Beckman was close behind with a total time of 2:22.66 and 16th place overall.

DHS’ Genny Bennett was dominant in the junior varsity girls’ race, finishing nearly five seconds ahead of the next racer. Bennett finished her two runs in 2:23.44. Davis freshman Nina Shields took second place in a total time of 2:28.66. Shannon Segall finished in third (2:28.82), Lauren Smith placed fourth (2:28.90) and Lucy Hass finished in fifth (2:28.95). Also placing in the top 10 were Kerry Boyers, Ilana Creinin, Madison Yule, Megan Kowta and Serena Roberts.

Graham Garzon was the first in for Davis junior varsity boys. He placed second with a total time of 2:20.90. In his first ski race, Miles Wong also performed well with a third-place finish in a two-run combined time of 2:22.83. Teammate Riley Gibson-Graf finished in fifth (2:28.65), followed by Justin Bier in sixth (2:29.02), Justin Reno in seventh (2:29.68) and Marshall True in eighth (2:30.10). Also in the top 10 was Michal Goodison (2:35.79).

The team will race the giant slalom again, weather permitting, on Monday at Sugar Bowl Resort.
