The Davis High School varsity boys snowboard team placed second overall in the slalom race at Boreal Ridge Resort this week. Sunny skies and warmer temperatures, combined with a holiday, treated the numerous Davis fans to a morning of great racing.

Colin Cohan blazed down the hill to come in fourth overall, leading the boys team to a second-place finish, edging out Truckee Tahoe by just one point.

Colin Wehrhan had his best finish, coming in ninth overall, followed by twin brother Nick Wehrhan in 14th place. JC Roeckl-Navazio rounded out the scoring for the varsity boys with a 16th-place finish. Kyle DiBiasio, Brian Simmons and Ben Simmons were tightly bunched at 21st, 22nd and 23rd overall, followed by teammates Casey Schnathorst (26th), Brennan Raven (32nd) and Ryan Sperandio (37th).

The varsity girls racers had a fourth-place finish, coming within six points of dethroning the girls from Placer High School.

Brittney Gingerich-Brooks crossed the finish line first for the DHS girls, slipping into the top 10 with a ninth-place finish, followed by Chris Roeckl-Navazio (19th), Valerie Hurst (24th) and Tarin Noonan (26th).

Alice Honig shaved 11 seconds off her last slalom time for this year’s personal best, and Ava Mills and Brangwyn Foley, freshman racers new to the team, both had clean runs through their first slalom races.

Sean Mulvihill’s blistering runs placed him first in the boys open division, four seconds ahead of teammate Andrew Steeples (third). Dakota Spycher finished fourth, followed by Dean Boswell (fifth), Ian Miramontes (seventh), Jared McNece (eighth) and Riley Descheemaeker (10th).

Mereck Moore (11th) missed placing in the top ten by a mere five-tenths of a second. Aiden Prien (14th), Kris Prince (15th), Connor Kinney (17th), Tim Nguyen (18th) and David Marciel (20th) all finished in the top 20 racers.

Halfway through the season, the DHS team is fourth in the Central Division II.

“In our first slalom race, our girls finished fifth, 35 points behind the third-place team,” said head coach Marcia Heller in analyzing the team’s performance. “In our second slalom race of the season, they finished fourth and only six points behind the third-place team — they are closing the gap and developing their skills nicely.”

“We keep improving each week,” she continued. “Our racers are faster on their runs and are inching their way up in the standings as a result of some really stellar effort being made at dryland conditioning and during the on-the-hill training. As a coach, I couldn’t ask for more from my athletes.”

The DHS snowboard team is scheduled for its second giant slalom race next week at Northstar Resort.
