The DHS snowboard team finished up the regular season at Alpine Meadows Resort on the longest giant slalom course of the season. The team celebrated the last race with its spirit day, themed “show your true colors,” which found racers wearing a variety of colorful boxers and briefs outside their race pants, decorated with bananas, sharks, Superman and Spiderman logos, chocolate kisses, stripes and stars.

Amid the fanfare, Colin Cohan carved and curved his way down the course as the first across the line for the Davis varsity boys, placing sixth overall. Colin Wehrhan quickly slid into the second spot, finishing seventh, a mere .22 seconds later. Dean Boswell, in his first varsity race of the season, wound his way into the third spot for the DHS boys, and 13th overall, followed by Nick Wehrhan (14th). Casey Schnathorst had his fastest finish of the year, placing 15th.

The varsity boys were second overall for the fifth time this year, with a number of varsity athletes contributing to a consistent team result.

The girls varsity results were not finalized, as many athletes struggled with the lengthy course. Timing issues, interference calls and prolonged slides on the slippery course left the girls varsity results in a state of disarray. What is known from preliminary race results is that Valerie Hurst came in first for the Davis girls, followed by Brittany Gingerich-Brooks, Tarin Noonan and Alice Honig. Natalie Wheeler had her best finish of the season. Without official results from the race, a combined team finish could not be determined by day’s end.

In the open division, Davis boys continued to overpower the opposition. Landon Smith aced the top spot, followed in quick succession by Andy Schmidl (second), Sean Mulvihill (third), Jared McNece (fourth) and Dakota Spycher (fifth). David Marciel mowed down the gates finishing seventh, followed by teammate Warren Quattrocchi, (eighth). Connor Kinney, in the 10th spot, was shadowed by Aidan Prien, who finished 11th.

Filling out the top 20 were Nick Ibarra (13th), Riley Descheemaeker (14th), Andrew Steeples (16th), Kris Prince (17th) and Sam Goodman (19th).

“What a long, strange race it was,” said head coach Marcia Heller. “Today’s race was by far the longest race I have ever seen, and it was pretty darn steep and icy as well. After seeing our racers on this course, it was obvious that our athletes have really advanced their skills — it was great to see!”

Once Monday’s giant slalom race results become official, state-qualified athletes will be announced and the team will start preparing for the state meet competition March 3-5 at Mount Shasta.
