DHS skiers are state championship-bound

Seventeen Davis High School athletes are waxing their skis and sharpening their edges in preparation for the pinnacle of their season: the California Nevada Interscholastic Ski and Snowboard Federation state championships.

The Blue Devil qualifiers will face the best slalom and giant slalom racers from more than 30 schools throughout California when they hit the slopes at Northstar on Monday and Tuesday. And Coach Bob Brewer is enthusiastic about the team’s chances.

“We’ve qualified 17 individuals, the largest championship team we’ve taken in recent history,” he said. “And it’s always this depth that enables us to get on the podium.”

The state championships are similar to regular-season races: Skiers will complete two runs in their event for a combined time. The boys and girls slalom races are set for Monday, and the boys and girls giant slalom races are Tuesday. Many DHS skiers have qualified to compete in both events.

Brewer has made many trips to the state finals in his 12 years as ski coach and describes them as “exciting, with kids from all over the state, including many we know from past years. It’s a very genial attitude.”

Weather could be an issue as the 10-day forecast shows rain and snow predicted for Northstar beginning today and continuing off and on through Monday. As the winter Olympics in Sochi taught us, conditions dictate much about how the races are trained for and equipment is prepared.

As Brewer says, “The warmer conditions and less-than-ideal snow requires that we pay particular attention to prepping skis. The waxing matters significantly,” as was repeatedly demonstrated in Sochi.

New for Brewer this year is his role at the state finals: “I’m lucky that I get to be the start referee, so I get to meet everyone who passes through the starting gates this year.”

And they’re lucky they get to meet you, too, Coach.
