Incline alpine skiing | Keller leads small Highlander contingent

Incline freshman Lauren Keller led the Highlanders with a fifth-place finish in a Tahoe Basin Ski League slalom race held at Diamond Peak on Monday.

Keller, who also recorded top finishes at a Far West Junior Olympics qualifier at her home mountain over the weekend, posted a two-run combined time of 1:01.28.

Whitney Gardner of Whittell won in 1:00.14 and was followed by North Tahoe’s Nikki Caravelli and South Tahoe’s Maia Bickert. Incline junior Lorena Pfaender finished 29th.

On the boys’ side, Truckee swept the top five spots, with Patrick Romano leading the way in a time of 56.60. Freshman Ian Reeves led the Highlanders in 25th. Incline senior Davis Bedient, who is having a solid season to date, disqualified on his first run.

North Tahoe took the combined team win with 380 points, while Truckee was second with 377 points and South Tahoe was third with 363. North Tahoe’s girls and Truckee’s boys claimed wins. Incline does not have enough skiers to contend in the team competition.
