A sprinkling of snow dusted the course Monday at the second giant slalom race at Alpine Meadows, and the Davis High School snowboard team found itself moving up in the standings.

The boys varsity team improved over last week’s race, taking second place — a mere two points behind Colfax. Girls varsity ended up third this week, six points behind Placer, who held on to the top spot by one point over Nevada Union. This week’s performance moved Davis closer in the overall standings to first-place Placer and put more distance between Davis and third-place Nevada Union.

“Seeing our athletes improve every week is a coaching dream come true,” said coach Marcia Heller. “Everyone is working hard and looking better each race — it is pretty remarkable.”

Chris Roeckl-Navazio improved over her performance last week with a personal-best finish of seventh overall, and was the first racer across the finish line for DHS for the second week in a row. Teammates Ava Mills and Abby DeWit (11th and 12th, respectively) were just .05 hundredths of a second apart, placing second and third for the Blue Devils.

Natalie Wheeler held the fourth scoring-position for Davis, coming in 17th overall. Alice Honig, Brangwyn Foley and Ellen Olsson all improved their times and placement over last week’s giant slalom competition.

Kyle Morse again finished first for DHS varsity boys, placing fifth overall. Dean Boswell topped his performance from last week, coming in seventh overall and second for Davis, his best finish of the year to date. Ben Simmons was the third racer for Davis to cross the finish line, placing 11th overall, and Sean Mulvihill rounded out the scorecard, coming in 14th overall. David Marciel, Brennan Raven and Landon Smith all had top-20 finishes this week as well.

The Blue Devil open class racers had a decisive showing with Cole Morse placing first, followed closely by Quinn Perez (second), Parker Molello (third) and Ben Easton (fifth). Elijah Chapman broke into the top 10 with a personal-best finish of seventh, with Conor Layman just behind in eighth. Caban Moore-Minor (ninth) and Henry Blacker (personal-best 10th) rounded out the top 10.

Coach Heller noted that the open class boys continue to improve.

“Even the new team members with limited experience are looking more confident and have a better form each week,” she said. “This translates directly to being better all-around snowboarders — now, if we could just get some more snow!”

The Davis snowboarders have their final slalom race of the year scheduled for Monday at Boreal where the competitors for the state championship slalom race will be determined.
