Another unseasonably warm day on the slopes resulted in another victory for the Davis High School ski team.

DHS raced its second giant slalom of the season at Sugar Bowl on Monday, in front of a spirited crowd of fans in attendance courtesy of the Martin Luther King holiday. Although the course was once again shorter than a standard GS course, the teams are fortunate to be able to compete at all with such dismal snowfall. Race-hosting ski resorts have made the match-ups possible by manufacturing snow where Mother Nature has not delivered.

Coach Bob Brewer said of his team: “It was a pretty good day for the DHS Blue Devils!”

Leading the way for DHS was Lily Wolfe, with a combined two-run time of 1:29.37. Wolfe has finished first for DHS in every race of the season so far. Also scoring points for the varsity girls were Alix Graves (1:31.21), placing second overall; Aina Smart (1:40.72), with a personal-best fifth overall; and another personal best for Nina Shields (1:41.13), who placed sixth overall. DHS varsity girls scored 270 points, followed by Nevada Union (236), Colfax (231) and Del Oro (116).

Junior varsity girls were led by first-place finisher Carolin Aurich (1:54.09), achieving a all-time high mark, closely followed by Sophie Chertok (1:54.44), Serena Roberts (1:56.28) and Maddie Asta (1:57.68).

“Our varsity boys did not disappoint, either,” Brewer said. He predicts “lots of championship qualifying finishes” after Monday’s times. State championships are scheduled for March 2-6 at Northstar.

First in for the varsity boys was Jack Beckman, finishing third overall in 1:32.54. Others adding points to the team include Kian Reno (1:32.95), Kian Tanner (1:33.84) and Miles Wong (1:34.78), finishing fourth, fifth and sixth overall, respectively. DHS boys earned 266 points versus 239 for Nevada Union; Del Oro had 233 and Quincy had 210.

DHS JV boys also owned their race with DHS’ Eric Smith finishing first overall (1:46.24). Continuing his rise up the rankings, Noah Fisher was second in for DHS (1:46.80), followed by Jake Griffiths (1:50.91) and Joel Almeida (1:52.87), who finished third, fourth and fifth overall, respectively.

Weather depending, the next race will be Monday, a slalom at Alpine Meadows.
