The Outlaws ski team competed in a slalom race at Hoodoo on February 3, and for the first time this season raced under sunny conditions with a smooth racing surface.

Sisters girls finished first, second, and third and won the race by a large margin. Presley Adelt took first with a combined time of 1:11.62, Tallis Grummer placed second with a time of 1:13.94, and Ella Eby took third with a time of 1:14.88. Remaining scores were: Pia Grummer, seventh (1:18.48); Ava Riehle, eighth (1:20.40); Kiara Martin, ninth (1:25.15); Brooke Duey, 12th (1:31.18); and Lauren Sitz, 13th (1:32.45). Payten Adelt crashed out on her first run, but got a 45.08 on her second.

Gabe Chladek told The Nugget that the Outlaws’ top three girls all kept very clean lines and skied the flatter portions of the course with a lot of aggression, carrying speed and momentum where it counted.

The Outlaws boys had some crashes and technical hang-ups, but still managed to log some impressive runs.

Spencer Tisdel came in second with a combined time of 1:09.47; Ben Hayner was seventh (1:18.91); Joseph Derksen, 10th (1:25.22); Daniel Miller, 13th (1:28.98); John Berg, 16th (1:30.69); Finn Stancliff, 24th (1:40.84); and Spencer Davis, 27th (1:55.60).

Cooper Merrill scored a third-place finish on run one with a single run time of 37.75, but crashed on his second. Emerson Backus got a 48.48 on run one and was on pace for a third-place finish on run two, but he straddled a gate late in the course and was disqualified.

Coach Chladek said, “As we reach the midpoint in the season it’s fun to see the competitive spirit emerging in these athletes as their eyes start shifting to the state championships in March.”

The Outlaws’ next race will be a giant slalom at Willamette Pass on Saturday, February 10.
