STHS confident heading into state

The South Tahoe Nordic ski teams turned in one of their best performances of the season in the final tune-up before this weekend’s CNISSF state championships.

Greg Koeck led the way again for the boys’ varsity team, finishing seventh out of 31 boys in a 6K classic race last Friday in Mammoth Lakes. His time of 21 minutes, 35 seconds was a few minutes behind first-place finisher Spencer Wood of Truckee (19:59).

Jeff Meagher was the next South Tahoe finisher, placing 12th (22:58) and Conner Alexander came in 24th (28:17). Despite only having three varsity racers, South Tahoe finsihed the regular season fourth in the team standings.

“That’s really pretty impressive considering other teams we race against have 10-15 boys competing,” STHS Nordic coach Scott Hudson said. “All the boys have improved tremendously.”

The South Tahoe girls’ junior varsity team finished third in the team standings and earned that final ranking with several good results in Mammoth Lakes.

All four JV racers finished among the top-16 in the 6K race, led by Kate Lambdin, who took fifth in a time of 28:45. Kayla Hudson was next at sixth (29:14) and was followed by Mary Kurek, who finished in 13th at 33:20, and Shayn Butler, who placed 16th in 35:30.

The CNISSF state championships are Friday and Saturday at the Auburn Ski Club on the north shore of Lake Tahoe.

In the middle school races last Friday in Mammoth, David Wise placed 15th in 13:56 in the 3K race and was follwed by Matt Olivares (20th), Grant Middlebrook (25th) and Justin Dalton (48th).

In the girls’ middle school race, Ashley Killeen took 13th in 14:42 and was followed by Alexis Holmes (24th) and Rebecca Sanders (42nd).

Chilton takes second at Boreal

Zephyr Cove’s Michael Chilton finished second in the men’s snowboard division at the World Superpipe Championship qualifier last weekend at Boreal Mountain Resort.

Autumn Rose (women’s snowboard), Dave Brumm (men’s snowboard) and Matt Hayward (men’s skier) all won their respective divisions and qualified for the World Superpipe Championships March 11-12 in Park City, Utah.

Only the winners in those three division earned entry into the finals.
