Tallis Grummer took first place to lead the Lady Outlaws at Willamette Pass. Both Outlaws teams placed multiple skiers among the top 10 finishers.

Sisters High School Alpine ski team competed in the third slalom race of the Emerald Ski League's season. The race was held on a run called Swoosh at Willamette Pass and conditions were near perfect with sunny skies, no wind, and a hard, fast, racing surface.

The Outlaws girls were led by Tallis Grummer, who took first place for the day with a combined time of 1:49.75. Ella Eby was next with a second place finish and a combined time of 1:52.03. Presley Adelt took fourth (1:52.77), Ava Riehle seventh (1:58.89), Pia Grummer eighth (1:59.42), Brooke Duey ninth (2:05.76), Kiara Martin 10th (2:06.03), Payten Adelt 13th (2:08.47), and Lauren Sitz 15th (2:17.57).

Coach Gabe Chladek said, "Tallis, Ella, and Presley all came at the course with a lot of aggression and managed to hold on through a very long slalom course to achieve some great finishes."

On the boys side, Spencer Tisdel took third place with a combined time of 1:43.64, Cooper Merrill finished fifth (1:51.32), Ben Hayner seventh (1:53.12), Emerson Backus eighth (1:55.94), Spencer Davis 10th (2:03.49), Jack Turpin 14th (2:06.11), John Berg 21st (2:15.92), Joseph Derksen 23rd (2:20.16), Finn Stancliff 24th (2:20.16), and Daniel Miller 28th (2:28.79).

Both teams placed first, cementing their standing at the top of league standings.

Chladek said, "It's really amazing to have so many Sisters athletes finish in the top 10 in the same race! This was two very clear team wins for the Sisters Outlaws."

Coming up next for the skiers is a giant slalom which is scheduled for Wednesday, February 21, at Hoodoo Ski Area.
