On Friday, January 3rd the Alpine ski team hit the slopes at Shawnee Peak in Bridgton for their season opener, competing in the Giant Slalom against Gorham, Marshwood, Kennebunk, Falmouth and Cheverus. Each athlete took two runs and their total time was those two runs added together.

Windham gave it all they had as they rounded the gates with focus and determination; passing through the finish line at high speeds.

The top finishers were:

Sarah Hare finished first among the team (and first overall among the girls) with a time of 1:11.46 minutes. Paiement with a time of 1:25.61
Annie Jackson with a time of 1:26.79
Emma Debrosse with a time of 1:28.84
Mya Bolk with a time of 1:40.63
Julia Thompson with a time of 1:54.95
And team captain Madelynn McGary with a time of 2:03.30

The girls placed third overall with a total of 63 points.

The top finishers were:

Nolan Dries with a time of 1:17.08
Benjamin White with a time of 1:17.63
Logan Marden with a time of 1:19.35
Cody Taylor with a time of 1:23.11
Owen Flibbert with a time of 1:29.92
And Samuel Plummer with a time of 2:03.02

The boys placed fourth overall with a total of 68 points.

“[We have] a lot of new freshman, and they were extremely surprising in their skill,” observed coach Emily Atwood. “The freshman we have are great...positive; a lot we can work with this season. The returning skiers were incredibly helpful and supportive to the new racers on our team. It was a great first race and with this amount of talent, I think we will have a very strong and competitive season.”
