The final slalom race of the season ended with the Davis High varsity boys snowboard team finishing second overall at Squaw Valley Resort this week. Although the course was steep, slick and icy, the Blue Devil boys carved their way down the mountain, placing three racers in the top 10.

JC Roeckl-Navazio sliced through the course with an eighth-place finish to lead the team, followed in quick succession by Colin Wehrhan (ninth) and Nick Wehrhan (10th). Brian Simmons was the fourth fastest Blue Devil, coming in 12th overall. Seniors Colin Cohan (14th) and Kyle DiBiasio (17th) placed in the top half of the field, followed by teammates Ben Simmons (21st), Casey Schnathorst (25th), Sean Mulvihill (27th) and Brennan Raven (35th).

 

 

In the varsity girls race, Valerie Hurst set the pace with her 10th-place finish, followed by Brittney Gingerich-Brooks in 11th place overall. Alice Honig had her best finish of the year, placing third among the Blue Devils, followed by Tarin Noonan.

With the help of personal bests, the combined boys and girls team scores netted a fourth-place finish overall for DHS.

 

In the open division, the Blue Devils again dominated the top spots. Sophomore Dean Boswell placed first, his best slalom finish of the season. Ryan Sperandio crossed the line in third, while Landon Smith (fourth), Jared McNece (fifth), Warren Quattrocchi (sixth), David Marciel (seventh), Tim Nguyen (eighth) and Kris Prince (10th) rounded out the top 10. The remaining Davis racers, Nick Ibarra (11th), Conor Kinney (12th), Riley Descheemaeker (14th), Andrew Steeples (15th), Matt Meyers (16th) and Sam Goodman (18th) finished strong.

 

DHS head coach Marcia Heller reflected on the development of her team.

“Our varsity racers are all perfecting their technique and honing their skills in preparation for the state meet,” she said. “Our JV racers (are) improving their race form and skills to be ready for some top-notch performances next season.”

 

 

With the last slalom race of the regular season in the books, the next step is to determine who qualified for the slalom race competition at the state meet in March.

“We may well have qualified eight varsity racers for states this week — that would be amazing,” Heller said.

 

The DHS snowboard team has its final race — a giant slalom — next week at Alpine Meadows.
