The Quincy High School ski team returned to Northstar on Jan. 21 to compete in the team’s third set of races this season. With three races down, the team’s season is now halfway over.
The race at Northstar marked the final giant slalom race. For the final half of the season the team’s forms will truly be tested with regular slalom racing.
“It was a beautiful day at Northstar,” said Quincy’s coach, Katy Dyrr. “It was nice and warm and luckily we didn’t have any timing problems this time. It was a very smooth day.”
Che Rubalcava-Cunan placed sixth in the races last week. Rubalcava-Cunan is the only member of Quincy’s ski team to currently stand in the top 10 of the league.
Daniel Haygood fell on one of his runs, which pushed his placement back to 21st. Dayne Lewis came in 23rd and Brian Wood placed 28th. Both Lewis and Wood placed much higher than they did the previous week.
The team traveled to Sugar Bowl on Jan. 28. Results will be posted in the Feb. 6 sports section. The team has only two races left: one at Alpine Meadows and one at Boreal.
