The Davis High snowboarders finished third their first giant slalom race at Alpine Meadows on Tuesday with the boys and girls each taking fourth in their division.

The competition was moved a day later because conditions at Northstar on Monday could not support the high school athletes from the Central Division II.

The Blue Devil performance was enough to keep DHS in second place in the division, and coach Marcia Heller was proud of her squad.

“The athletes did well in their first giant slalom race — now that our new additions have gotten a sense of the nuances of the giant slalom course I think that they will be better prepared for our next GS event.”

Leading the Devil boys was Kyle Morse, who placed seventh overall. Dean Boswell was next across the finish line for Davis, posting a personal-best finish of eighth overall. Rounding out the scoring for the local boys were Sean Mulvihill (14th overall), Landon Smith (15th) and Brennan Raven, whose 18th-place finish was a personal best in his first varsity race of the season.

Chris Roeckl-Navazio also topped her previous best as she led the Blue Devil girls down the mountain, taking 10th. Also adding points to the DHS girls score were Abby DeWit (15th overall), Ava Mills (16th) and Natalie Wheeler (18th).

Brand new to the sport this year, Devil Sonny Kneip opened her season with a solid performance Tuesday.

The Davis JV boys had six boarders in the top nine as Ben Easton, Parker Molello and Cole Morse swept the top three spots and Connor Layman took sixth, a personal-best finish. Blue Devil racers Tom Thornton (seventh) and Caban Moore-Minor (ninth) rounded out the local finishers.

“We had a number of athletes obtain personal bests this race,” Heller said. “I am very pleased with the efforts and success of our racers.”

The team competes again on Monday at Alpine Meadows and, with a storm coming to the Tahoe area, it promises to be one of the best days of the season thus far.
