Sierra’s Cabral sweeps local moguls competition

Sierra-at-Tahoe moguls prodigy Travis Cabral continued to add to his already-impressive freestyle resume, winning a pair of Far West mogul events last weekend at Squaw Valley.

Cabral, 15, finished first overall Saturday with a 25.88 time, and followed Sunday with another top mark. The field included over 65 racers and counted U.S. Ski Team members Shelley Robertson and Shannon Bahrke among its competitors.

Fellow Sierra phenom Amber Ramos put together a couple of nice finishes, placing third overall on Saturday and second on Sunday. Ramos, whose brother Travis is a U.S. freestyler, won the top spot in J5 competition both days.

In other races, Heavenly’s Courtney Royce won a pair of J5 races, and Joi Gallent finished fifth overall on Saturday. For the Heavenly boys, Travis Woodcock placed third in seniors and Thomas Schwindeman, Jerel Dutton and Brent Abrams put together a 1-2-3 Heavenly sweep in J4 action.

Skiers braved some icy elements at the bumpy Squaw Valley course, and a pair of South Shore competitors unfortunately suffered injuries on the tough racing day. Gallant, who was first in the J3s, tore a knee ligament while Alpine Meadows’ Greg Lindsay broke his arm

STWC tunes up for Las Vegas tourney:

Reversals, escapes and pin falls were part and parcel of the action last Saturday for the South Tahoe Wrestling Club at a freestyle event at Churchill High School in Fallon.

South Tahoe High state championship qualifier kept his game fresh, hitting the mat five times to finish third overall. South Tahoe High freshman Ryan Wallace placed second in both Greco and Freestyle events.

In the Pee-wee division, Justin Dalton wrestled six times and placed fourth in his class while Zack Williams and Alex Steves nailed down second and third, respectively.

In the Bantam division, Francisco Salas placed fourth, Cameron Roth placed fifth and Ricky Braun scored sixth place in the 20-wrestler field. STWC Novice Garrett Gibb placed first in Greco-Roman competition and posted fourth place in freestyle action, wrestling eight matches for the day; both Gabriel Salas and J.P. Foster finished second overall.

In the Schoolboy division, Kevin Maslow ended up third overall

The STWC will compete again March 14 at a freestyle tournament at Douglas High School in ??????. The meet will be the last local tournament prior to the Nevada State Greco-Roman and Freestyle Wrestling tournament in Las Vegas March 19-21. Borges estimates estimates that eight of the club’s 63 wrestlers will attend the state tournament, including Ross, Maslow, Gibb, Wallace and undefeated grappler Miles Wallace.
