For the final giant slalom of the season, the Davis High School ski team crushed the competition.

Monday’s race at Alpine Meadows saw the Blue Devils take first place for both varsity girls and boys. The final score for the teams competing in the CNISSF Central II division were: Davis 528, Nevada Union 476, Colfax 420, Del Oro 385, Quincy 223 and Tahoe Expedition Academy 70.

Said coach Bob Brewer of the results, “I think this is our strongest win so far. The varsity boys really stepped up, with seven of the top 10 places, and there was not much room at the top for anyone else.”

Lily Wolfe again owned the top spot for Davis varsity girls — and the top time for the entire DHS ski team — placing second overall in 1:05.87. Behind her was Alix Graves (1:07.47) with a third-overall finish. Also scoring points for DHS were Lauren Smith, with a personal-best seventh overall (1:14.87) and Kerry Boyers (1:16.73), finishing eighth overall. Other top finishers for DHS were Shannon Segall (ninth overall in 1:18.06) and Lindsey Bavetta (14th overall in 1:21.30). Emily Jonsson got a special surprise birthday gift from Aina Smart, who gave up her spot on varsity so Jonsson could make her first appearance with the varsity girls; she finished 18th overall (1:22.26).

Serena Roberts led the junior varsity girls, finishing in 1:17.35. Next in for JV girls was Carolin Aurich (1:22.92), and a second behind her was Megan Beckman (1:23.93). Rounding out the top five were Ester Wang (1:27.12) and Sophie Chertok (1:29.10).

Leading the way for Davis varsity boys was Kian Tanner, second overall with a combined two-run time of 1:07.25. Fractions of a second separated many of the top finishers for the Blue Devils: The next racers in were Miles Wong (1:09.88), Kian Reno (1:10.12), Jack Beckman (1:10.33), Justin Reno (1:10.72, a personal-best eighth overall), Tyler Powell (1:10.83), and Michael Welsh (1:11.01), taking fifth  through 10th places, respectively. Rounding out the top spots for Davis varsity boys were Justin Bier (1:12.35), 13th overall, and Davis Perez (1:14.12), 15th overall.

First in for junior varsity boys was Michal Goodison, who took the top spot overall, finishing in 1:13.22. Eric Smith was next for DHS, placing third overall (1:19.91), followed by Noah Fisher, fourth overall (1:21.35) and Thomas Hart in fifth (1:22.43). Freshman Jackson Lutzker’s personal-best sixth-place finish was completed in 1.23.55.

The team’s final race of the season, a slalom, is scheduled for Monday at Sugar Bowl resort, weather permitting.
