The Outlaws skiers swept both the boys’ and girls’ races under beautiful and sunny skies, with five racers from each team finishing in the top 10 in the Giant Slalom race held on Saturday, January 22, at Willamette Pass.

Both Bela Chladek and Araiya Grummer took first- place finishes and won their races by more than a second, which, according to Coach Gabe Chladek, is a big margin in alpine ski racing.

Grummer finished with a combined time of 1:44.10 and Chladek finished with a combined time of 1:33.33.

“Both Bela and Araiya kept their lines through the course close to the gates and skied aggressively right out of the start, and were able to hold a fast pace through the finish,” said Chladek.

Four other girls finished in the top 10, including Tallis Grummer, who took third with a combined time of 1:46.02, Ella Eby who finished seventh (1:47.58); Charlotte Seymour, who took eighth (1:47.62); and Piper Adelt, who took ninth (1:51.76).

Remaining scores were: Ava Riehle, 13th place with a time of 1:53.85; Annie Cohen, 14th with a time of 1:54.67; Mae Roth, 16th (1:59.34); Lauren Sitz, 18th (2:04.90); Kiara Martin 21st (2:07.88); and Molly Greaney, 24th (3:03.79).

Corbin Fredland makes a run for the Outlaws, who won both the boys and girls ski races last weekend.

On the boys’ side, Corbin Fredland finished third with a combined time of 1:35.33, Styopa Myagkov took fourth (1:37.45), Gus Patton took seventh (1:41.75), and Brody Duey finished 10th with a combined time of 1:47.71.

Remaining scores were Emerson Backus, 11th (1:47.83); Spencer Tisdel, 14th (1:49.33); Cooper Merrill, 16th (1:53.11); John Berg, 23rd (2:07.74); Jack Turpin, 26th (2:14.89); and Kellen Petke finished 28th (2:26.08).

“The entire team put on an outstanding performance, and it was really great to see some of our racers from the lower seeds moving up in their finish order,” said Chladek. “Especially noteworthy were junior and first-year racer Gus Patton from the boys’ team and freshman Tallis Grummer on the girls’ side. Both racers were able to move their turns in closer to the race gates taking seconds off their runs.”

The Outlaw skiers’ next race will be a slalom on Wednesday, January 26, at Hoodoo Ski Area.
