Lions skiers relish the weekends snow

"Feast or famine" could be used to describe this year's ski season. The giant slalom race held Saturday at Mount Hood Meadows was definitely a "feast" as the snow continued to dump all day. Despite lots of powder on the course and challenging visibility at times, the West Linn boys and girls ski team had another gratifying day and posted some great results.

The boys team won handily by almost nine combined seconds over the second-place Lakeridge team. Trevor Maxwell, Kyle Larson, Colin Maxwell and Chris McNabb delivered the top times to secure the first-place team finish .

For the fourth week in a row, Trevor Maxwell won the race overall followed by Larson in third, Colin Maxwell in seventh, Jordan Riesterer in ninth and Grant McDonald in 22nd.

The girls varsity team took third place for the day. Annalyssa Sassara, Tyler Shipley and Quinn Mitchell had the top times for both runs.

Individually, Sassara placed third, Shipley 15th, Mitchell 24th, Emily Jordan 27th, Sammy Steeh 32nd and Carly Savoy 36th.

The JV boys also swept first place by just under 40 seconds. Dylan Tuor won the event followed by Carson Pike in second, Zach Stevens in fourth, Brennan Pool fifth, Mickie Seigneur ninth and Cole Butler 16th.

Ellery Ross placed fourth for the JV girls.

The Lions' next race is Feb. 15 at Mount Hood Meadows.
