Two days after their first race, the Windham High alpine ski team returned to Shawnee Peak in Bridgton to take on Gorham and Kennebunk in the giant slalom on Friday, Feb. 12. Windham junior Sarah Hare placed first overall among the girls with a final time of 1:07.54. She finished her first run in 33.29 and her second in 34.25.

Windham freshman Lilly McLean finished third overall with a final time of 1:13.12. Windham sophomore Annie Jackson finished fourth overall with a final time of 1:14.53. The Windham girls held five spots in the top ten with each of the five girls finishing the race in under one minute twenty seconds.

Windham sophomore Sam Plummer finished second overall among the boys with a final time of 1:05.88. He finished his first run with a time of 32.66 and his second run with a time of 33.22.

“It’s really nice (to get back out on the mountain),” said Plummer. “I’m glad we’re able to do it with Covid and everything; it’s nice to be able to race. The conditions were really good ... the course settled nice and it was pretty fast-paced.”

The Windham boys occupied four of the top 10 spots. Sophomore Nolan Dries finished fourth overall with a time of 1:08.23. Sophomore Logan Marden finished seventh overall with a time of 1:12.42.

“The team had a great night,” said Windham coach Lucas Hare. They are really starting to put together the techniques that Coach Politano and I are reviewing with them. All the hard work the kids have been putting in is clearly paying off as their recent race results show.”

In team points, Windham came in first for both the girls and boys. Gorham did not qualify in either group, so there were only two team scores. The girls had a score of 15-32; the boys had a score of 23-30. <
