January 4, 2013
Steamboat Springs — The Steamboat Springs High School Alpine ski team opened up the season Friday in Beaver Creek with three podium finishes.
Ali Pougiales was second on the girls side with a two-run time of 2 minutes, 11.66 seconds. She clocked the fastest second run by almost a second.
Suzanne Lyon was fifth in 2:17.47, and McKenzie Millard was sixth in 2:18.18.
Battle Mountain's Kendall VanHee was the winner in 2:10.92.
On the boys side, Peter White narrowly missed winning, finishing second in 2:09.77. Aspen's Luke Prosence was first in 2:09.50.
Andreas Foulk was third in 2:13.48, and Danny Kramer was sixth in 2:15.08.
"We're very happy with the way they skied," coach Jim Winn said.
The team next competes Friday when it hosts a dual slalom at Howelsen Hill. Because of the dual slalom, more gatekeepers are needed. Those interested in volunteering can email Winn at email@example.com.
The tentative start time for Friday's first run is 10 a.m. Volunteers likely would need to be at Howelsen by 8 a.m.
