With drought announcements and limited snowfall this year, it was an accomplishment to have the second slalom race of the season go off without a hiccup at Boreal Resort.

It was not snow depth but skill depth that kept the Blue Devils in contention in the Central Division II. Davis High School is currently second in the overall Division II standings behind Placer, and comfortably ahead of Truckee and Colfax.

Coach Marcia Heller commended all of the athletes for their performances. “There is nothing more satisfying as a coach than seeing the athlete’s hard work translate into improved performance — there are a lot of personal bests happening out there on the slopes this season!” she said.

This week some new faces made it into scoring positions for the DHS varsity girls and boys teams. Girls varsity placed fourth, led by sophomore Ava Mills, who was 12th overall with a personal-best finish. Chris Roeckl-Navazio was right behind her teammate, coming in second and 13th overall. Just .01 seconds behind Roeckl-Navazio was Abby DeWit, finishing 14th. Natalie Wheeler was the final scorer for DHS (16th overall).

Kyle Morse continued to head up the Davis varsity boys, finishing first for the second week in a row, placing ninth overall. Sean Mulvihill had a personal-best finish of 12th overall, second for the Blue Devil squad. Third in for DHS, David Marciel moved up nine spots from last week’s race to place 13th overall. And the final racer contributing points to the team was sophomore Conner Kinney, with a personal-best finish of 18th overall.

Davis continued to dominate the open class with Quinn Perez solidly in first, followed by teammate Ben Easton in second. Next in for DHS were Parker Molello finishing fourth, shadowed by teammate Conner Layman in fifth.

“There were several racers scoring points for Davis this week that have not had scoring opportunities in the past, which speaks to the depth of this team,” Heller said. “When some of our racers struggled this week, others were there to fill in the gaps and provide Davis with some great results and sufficient points to stay in the hunt for the division title.”

The Blue Devil snowboarders compete in their first giant slalom competition of the season on Monday.
