Lady Outlaws hit the slopes in giant slalom

The Lady Outlaws skied their first giant slalom race of the season on Cliffhanger at Mt. Bachelor on Friday, January 10, and walked off the slopes with a fourth-place finish.

Hollie Lewis was the Outlaws’ leading racer and finished 20th with a combined time of 2:43.93, and Sydney Wilkins and Skylar Wilkins were close behind with 23rd (2;49.75) and 24th (2:50.31) respective finishes. Piper Adelt was doing a beautiful job on her first run, but missed a gate and was disqualified. Piper had a great second run with a time of 1:29.85.

“This is a big breakthrough for the Sisters girls,” said Coach Gabe Chladek. “The girls all skied aggressively and did a great job, especially considering the very little on-the-hill training we’ve been able to get due to the slow start to this winter.”

The boys were scheduled to race on Saturday, January 11, but the race was canceled due to winter storm conditions. Their race will be rescheduled later in the season.

Next up for both the girls and boys is a slalom race at Mt. Bachelor on Saturday, January 18.
