The Davis High snowboard team lost 13 athletes from last year’s solid squad to graduation. However, the Blue Devils didn’t miss a beat as incoming freshmen stepped up at the first race of the season at Sugar Bowl on Monday.

Freshman racers Abby DeWit and Kyle Morse started in the No. 1 spots for the DHS girls and boys varsity snowboard team, respectively, and after times were tallied on the slalom course, they maintained their top spots.

The underclassmen helped DHS to a second-place finish overall behind Placer.

DeWit, in her first race, placed eighth overall against tough competition from Nevada Union, Placer and Truckee high schools. Blue Devil juniors Alice Honig and Chris Roeckl-Navazio placed 11th and 12th, respectively, and sophomore Ava Mills had a personal-best, finishing 15th and rounding out the scoring for DHS girls. Brangwyn Foley, a sophomore, finished 21st overall. The top four finishers scored 358 points, for third-place in the girls’ division.

Kyle Morse smoked the course, finishing seventh overall, edging out sophomore teammate Ben Simmons by a mere .13 seconds. Junior Dean Boswell placed 16th overall, .35 seconds ahead of freshman Conlan Noonan (17th). Junior David Marciel placed 22nd in his first varsity race appearance, followed by sophomore Cole Morse .02 seconds behind him in 23rd. Junior Sean Mulvihill tied a Colfax racer for the 25th spot, and sophomore Conner Kinney was hot on their heels finishing 27th. Senior Parker Molello was the final finisher for the DHS boys varsity squad, coming in 43rd after recovering from a fall in his first race as a Blue Devil. The top four finishers earned a fourth place boys’ division finish and 356 points for the team.

In the boys Open Class, DHS blanketed the top-10 spots with junior Brennan Raven taking first, followed by senior Quinn Perez in third. Junior Landon Smith finished fourth, just ahead of freshman Ben Easton (fifth). Seniors and first-time racers Austin Rogers and Caban Moore-Minor placed seventh and eighth, with sophomore Tom Thornton placing ninth. Sam Goodman, Elijah Chapman, Henry Blacker and Conner Layman took the 12th through 15th spots.

“It was fantastic to see our new racers get off to such a great start to their first season,” coach Marcia Heller said. “All of our athletes worked very hard to prepare for the first race, and I can’t say enough about the fine example set by our returning athletes in regards to work ethic and training. I expect even better results as the season progresses and our newer athletes gain experience.”

The team is set to race the slalom course at Boreal next week.
