SKIING: Saline-Chelsea Girls 6th in Slalom

 01/31/2018 - 00:05

The Saline Chelsea ski team raced Tuesday night in a slalom event in tough conditions at Mt Brighton.

"The freeze-thaw cycles we’ve been experiencing make for very icy course conditions, with 36 racers unable to finish, and several others that fell but were able to get back up to finish," coach Laura Dillman said. 

The boys team fell victim to this, with Caden Faupel the only racer on the boys’ team completing the course, but he too suffered a fall on his second run.

The girls team once again took sixth place in the 11-team field. The girls in scoring position included Nikki Dillmann, in 17th place, Katie McInnis, in 26th place, Ally Dillmann, in 28th place, and Elizabeth Johnson, in 43rdplace.
