The Davis High School varsity boys snowboard team finished first on Monday at the giant slalom race at Northstar Resort, beating out powerhouse Placer, which has dominated the top spot through the first half of the season.

Colin Wehrhan smoked the cold and icy course for a sixth-place overall finish, while twin brother Nick Wehrhan was hot on his heels finishing eighth overall. Colin Cohan torched the course, ending up third for DHS and ninth overall, less than half-a-second behind his teammate. Brian Simmons blazed down the course, crossing the finish line in fourth for Davis, 13th overall. Kyle DiBiasio (17th), Casey Schnathorst (18th) and JC Roeckl-Navazio (20th) also placed in the top 20 in this very competitive fast-paced race.

The varsity girls racers were led by Brittney Gingerich-Brooks, who had a scorching sixth-place finish, followed by Valerie Hurst (13th), Chris Roeckl-Navazio (24th), and Tarin Noonan (27th). The combined varsity boys and girls teams netted a third-place finish for DHS — its best team performance to date.

Coach Marcia Heller was pleased with this week’s results.

“It was a slow start to the season for the team, but the racers are developing nicely. At this rate they are likely to peek at the perfect time — the state competition in March,” Heller said.

DHS blanketed the boys open division, with 16 racers finishing in the top 20 spots. Ryan Sperandio finished first, followed in quick succession by teammates Dean Boswell (second), Warren Quattrocchi (third), Andrew Schmidl (fourth), Landon Smith (fifth), Sean Mulvihill (sixth), Ian Miramontes (seventh), Aidan Prien (eighth) and Mereck Moore (ninth). David Marciel had his best finish of the season (12th), and the boys rounded out the top 20 with Nick Ibarra finishing 13th, Riley Descheemaeker at 14th, Dakota Spycher (15th), Connor Kinney (17th), Tim Nguyen (19th) and Kris Prince (20th).

The DHS snowboard team has its final slalom race next week at Squaw Valley Resort.
