Girls alpine skiers shine during MLK race

Taking part in the annual Martin Luther King Day dual race schedule on Friday, January 15 at Giants Ridge in Biwabik, the Chisago Lakes girls alpine ski team started things off on the right foot.

They earned a second place finish in the morning race as a team, with Sophie Janzig sweeping the top spots in both races. Maren and Elsa Dahl then contributed two solid finishes and that vaulted the girls to their second place standing with 299 points. They were still quite a bit behind St. Cloud in the top spot, but one of their other top skiers, Anna Dahl, ha taking a tumble in the first run. Her second run was top 15, and that may have been enough for the ‘Cats to overtake the Breakaways.

Janzig’s dual times were phenomenal, with her just beating Brainerd’s Calia Chaney in both races. She finished the first run in a time of 39.73 seconds and the second run in a time of 39.56 seconds for a total run of 1:19.29. Chaney came in second in 1:20.56

Two of the Dahl sisters finished in near back-to-back spots in 11th and 13th place. Maren finished 11th in the first run and eighth in the second run, clocking 1:24.07 for her total time. Elsa came in 12th and 17th in her two runs and her combined time was 1:25.72.

Lauryn Lundberg, Ruby Fasbender, Ilsa Heinecke and Anna Dahl were the other finishers for CL’s second place squad.

In the afternoon race, four of the five top skiers for CL weren’t a part of the lineup and it dropped them all the way from second to 11th in the team standings. Janzig still had a great race, finishing second in both runs and second overall with a time of 1:22.00, but the next highest  finisher after that was Hailey Rivard in 50th place. Kaylee Peterson had a nice second run, coming in 31st overall, but she had stumbled in her first run, causing her to finishing in 57th place.

Fasbender, Reese Blum, Anna Hageman and Aisha Roche were the other varsity skiers for CL in the afternoon race.

On the boys side, they also had their best showing in the morning race. Will Hennen highlighted the teams’ fifth place finish with a sixth place finish of his own. He came in eighth place with a time of 37.57 seconds in the first run and seventh place with a time of 39.18 seconds in the second run. His overall time was 1:16.75.

Orval Cyr came in 18th place with a time of 1:21.30 and Tyler Drury and Ethan Johnson both grabbed top 40 finishes. Drury came in 33rd with a time of 1:25.90 and Johnson finished 39th with a time of 1:28.97. Martin Cyr had a nice 37th place finish in the second run, but had a disqualification in the first run, leaving him on the outside looking in.

The boys accumulated 268 points in the morning race to finish fifth, ahead of Annandale and Lakes Area and just behind Brainerd and Hopkins.

In the sunset race, both Martin and Orval Cyr didn’t race, and neither did Johnson. And Hennen got a DQ in his second run, so his score didn’t county and it ended up being a tough night for the boys as they tumbled down to 10th place.

Drury led the Wildcats with a promising 21st place finish after finishing in 34th in the first run and 18th in the second.

Jake Helgason came in second for the ‘Cats with a time of 1:35.39 in 38th place, and Logan West finished in 48th place with a time of 1:38.64.

Joel Mellum, Joe Froberg and Soren Youngblom were the other boys who competed in varsity for the ‘Cats.
