Shooting Star Ridge Giant Slalom 1/14/2012
February 8, 2012Lakeridge High School
Shooting Star Ridge GS: Wow, what an amazing contrast in weather from the beginning to the end. First, racers, if your parent/s worked as a gatekeeper, timer or start area official, you and the rest of the team owe them a big hug and thank you. That was as bad as it gets – snow blowing over 30 mph with near white out vertigo on the ridge at times causing wind chill well below zero. THANK YOU LAKERIDGE PARENTS.
On the skiing side the Girls and Boys JV skiers cleaned up – both taking first place for JV with the Girls placing 1, 2, 3 (Nicole Humphries, Tai Stangeland, Lizzy Aronson) and the boys placing 1, 2, 5 and 7 (Bryan Hungerford, Charlie Levin, Nick Trofgruben, Brandon Kuhnert, with Andrew Carlson contributing). On the Boy’s Varsity front it is once again a race for second behind the depth of West Linn with Lakeridge edging out Lincoln this week by just over a second. The top finishers for Boy’s Varsity were Riley Shearer (7th), Jack Benziger (15th) and Michael Conan (16th). For the Girls Varsity freshman Maddie Lawhead was the top finisher (15th), followed by Lauren McIver (16th), Colleen Rooney (18th) and Evan Heath (19th). The Girl’s Varsity team took fourth. The Pacers also continued their positive team spirit getting complements from opposing team parents and coaches for the varsity racers coming back to the top of the course after their runs to support the JV skiers. As a matter of fact the Lakeridge fight song was heard over the howling wind late in the race. As always, complete race results can be found at www.ski3rivers.org.
