Ellie Frischmon has strung together a lot of good runs in her alpine skiing career, but she hasn’t quite had the performance she did at the MLK High School Slalom Invite at Giants Ridge last week.

Frischmon won the meet with ultra fast times on both runs. In the red run, she finished in 39.80 seconds, which was almost a second clear of the second place finisher, which is a pretty large gap in skiing.

In the blue run, Frischmon didn’t let off the gas, flying through the course in 38.28, which was again nearly one second faster than the next finisher.

Her combined time of 1:18.08 bested Story Schwantes of Stillwater, who had a combined time of 1:19.73.

The rest of the girls team had a nice day at Giants Ridge, also, earning third place in the large meet at the site of the state tournament.

Hannah Stec was the second place finisher for the Wildcats. She came in eighth in the red run with a time of 42.18 seconds, and followed that up with a 16th place finish on the blue run in 42.12 seconds.

Ashley Angel had consistent finishes, coming in 16th on the red run and 15th on the blue. Her times combined for 1:25.34, good enough for 15th place overall.

Alicia Sandberg rounded out CL’s varsity scoring in the meet with a combined time of 1:31.12, coming in 26th place. Hannah Janzig was just behind her in 27th place, a half second behind.
Lauren Peltier and Mikayla Granfors both registered top 30 finishes in one of their runs, but tumbled in their other run.

Stillwater won the meet with a score of 249, but it was close. Brainerd came in second place with 238 points and the Wildcats were in third with 230.5 points.

Boys
The boys were led by Ryan Mower, who came in 14th on the red run with a time of 41.52 seconds and 15th on the blue run in 37.94 seconds.

Jeremy Wesloh finished 19th overall with a time of 1:23.77 and Isaac Bierman wasn’t far behind, coming in 23rd place with a time of 1:25.46.

After that, the boys had some struggles keeping their edges on the hill. John Frischmon finished 16th on the blue hill in 38.47 seconds, but his red run was marred by a fall.

Both Anders Brown and Casey Bennet impressed on the blue course only to not finish the red course. Brown finished second on the red and Bennett 20th.

The stumbles led to a sixth place finish for the boys team, but they know what they are capable of when they return to Giants Ridge.
