The Davis High School ski team won its slalom competition at Alpine Meadows on Monday. Based on the times of the top finishers, Davis earned 413 points for first place, followed by Nevada Union with 398 and Colfax with 340.

The girls team dominated as has been typical this season, earning 209 of those points. Colfax girls were second (194) and Nevada Union third (190). Davis boys were much stronger this week. Only 40 percent of the varsity boys managed to complete the slalom course last week but 90 percent finished this week and they took second place with 204 points. Nevada Union boys led them by only 4 points. Colfax was third with 146 points.

“It’s been great to see the racers maintaining a focus on improving,” said coach Bob Brewer. “They have won most of their races but continue to learn and get better.”

Lily Wolfe took second place for varsity girls, having finished two solid runs in a total time of 1:27.94. Alix Graves was the next Davis racer in, taking fourth place in a two-run combined time of 1:31.18. Natalie Serdahl was close behind in fifth place (1:32.29). In her first varsity race, Shannon Segall finished a personal-best eighth (1:41.51) and Lani Chang came in 10th (1:43.10).

Davis varsity boys were led by Derek Pleasants, who took second place with a two-run combined time of 1:26.71. Daniel Safford finished in the sixth spot in 1:35.03 and Dan Ferenc-Segedin was seventh (1:37.70). Kian Reno missed a gate during his second run and had to hike uphill to get around it, but still managed a ninth-place finish in 1:39.39. Bruno Ferenc-Segedin came in 10th (1:39.83).

Davis’ Lindsey Bavetta took first place for junior varsity girls, completing her two runs in 1:51.91. Kerry Boyers was the next racer in, finishing her two runs in 1:54.77. Nina Shields was third (1:59.79), Serena Roberts came in fourth (2:00.18) and Maddie Asta took fifth (2:01.05). Also placing in the top 10 were Emily Jonsson, Katya Christian, Madison Yule, Megan Kowta and Sophie Chertok.

Tyler Powell led junior varsity boys with a first-place finish; his two-run combined time was 1:36.17. Justin Reno was second in 1:43.59, Justin Bier placed third in 1:43.88, Noah Fisher was fifth (1:53.46) and Pavle Jeremic was seventh (1:56.93). Also in the top 10 were Marshall True and Michal Goodison.

Weather permitting, the next race will be a slalom at Boreal Mountain Resort on Monday. This will be the final divisional race of the season. Qualifiers will then begin preparation for the state championships.
