In a season of difficult and dry conditions, Thursday’s slalom race at Sugar Bowl was the strangest of the year for the Davis High ski team.
Instead of the short, slushy courses they’ve regularly faced, the Blue Devils contended with fog, mist and wind that necessitated consolidating the two-run race into one. The race already had been postponed from Monday, Feb. 10, due to weekend storms, and Thursday’s race needed to be completed for state championship qualifiers to be determined.

Coach Bob Brewer was happy to report that “Although wet and windy conditions and poor visibility made things challenging, all four Davis teams won” the final race of the season. The team claimed the California Nevada Interscholastic Ski and Snowboard Federation Division II titles in girls, boys and combined.

The total points earned by DHS were 514, followed by Nevada Union with 494, Colfax with 449, Del Oro with 424, Quincy with 192 and Tahoe Expedition Academy with 138.

Brewer wanted to give a special shout-out to senior Lauren Smith, who “finished her final race today — finishing every race her entire career with the team! That’s quite an accomplishment.”

Girls varsity racers were led by Lily Wolfe, who completed the foggy, misty course in 49.58, placing fourth overall. Behind her was Aina Smart, sixth overall in 53.75. Also scoring points for DHS were Lindsey Bavetta, 11th overall in 1:00.75 and Shannon Segall, 12th overall in 1:01.46. Maddie Asta competed in her first varsity race and finished 13th overall in 1:02.89.

First in for junior varsity girls was Megan Beckman, who completed the run in 1:04.03. Next for JV girls were Laura Hiller (1:05.66), Serena Roberts (1:06.49) and Helen Porterfield (1:06.81).

The top finisher for DHS varsity boys was Kian Reno in 51.09, placing second overall. Next in for the Blue Devils was Kian Tanner, fourth overall in 52.57. Also scoring points for the team were Justin Bier, seventh overall (54.19), and Miles Wong, eighth overall (54.57).

JV boys were led by Evan Wetzlich, with a personal-best first-place finish in 58.74. Behind him were Thomas Hart (1:00.09), Noah Fisher (1:01.99) and Jacob Comingore (1:03.43).

Coach Brewer estimates that the Blue Devils have qualified about 15 racers for the state championships at Northstar on March 2-4. CNISSF will confirm the qualifiers early next week.
