Incline alpine skiing | Reeves, Bedient represent Highlanders at state

Freshman Ian Reeves led the Highlanders’ two-man contingent in the Tahoe Basin Ski League state championships at Alpine Meadows on Monday and Tuesday.

Reeves, who only competed in Tuesday’s giant slalom, posted an 11th-place finish with a two-run combined time of 1:07. Garrett Driller of North Tahoe won the GS title in a time of 1:03.

Incline senior Davis Bedient, meanwhile, finished 20th in Monday’s slalom in his final high school race, posting a time of 1:37. He was poised to finish somewhere in the same neighborhood in the GS on Tuesday, but he disqualified on his second run.

Hughston of Whittell won the slalom title in a time of 1:17.

Individually for the girls, North Tahoe’s Nikki Caravelli and South Tahoe’s Mai Bickert were co-champions after Bickert won the slalom and Caravelli won the GS. They finished 1-2 in both races.

In the team competition, North Tahoe earned five titles to go along with its three individual titles — boys’ slalom, GS and combined, and girls’ GS and combined.
