2C Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2001 E.,.Let s ~rogress ,e. 1 uincy 1 The ski season's final Central I League race was held in the snow squalls of Northstar Feb. 19. Quincy and Portola skiers had a good showing on the extended giant slalom course to punctuate a successful season and set the stage for the State Championships at Northstar March 5-6. The Quincy team was again dominant. Both the boys and girls teams ended up undefeat- ed in league competition for the first time in Quincy ski history. The girls race featured a remarkable seven Quincy girls in the top twelve racers. Quincy Junior Michelle Hochrein was edged by Davis' Lisa White, who grabbed the top spot in 2:36.22. The next five girls were either from Quincy or Portola. Quincy's Alia Mrowczynski (third) topped teammate Lindsay Morton (fourth). Portola's Katie Filippini, with her hair blowing in the breeze, roared into the fifth spot, fol- lowed by Quincy's Allyssa Backman (sixth) and Allie Henson (seventh). Quincy's Katie Reid (10th) continued to improve and edged out her teammate Danielle Backman (.12th) and Portola's Karl Schafer (13th). Quincy's Esa Morrison came in 18th. Quincy eighth-graders Heather Hochrein and Elly Logan, who could ski because it was the last meet of the year, led all the junior varsity skiers and would have placed 17th and 18th in varsity action. Quincy girls won the day's race by a large 22 point mar- gin. The Quincy girls so domi- nated the season that they would have won the league championship without even showing up for this sixth race of the year. 1 in Quincy boys grabbed three of the top five spots. Quincy Senior Pat Sheehan was a half second behind the day's win- ner-Bear River's Ryan Cummings (2:27:88). Quincy's Travis Phelps (fourth) topped his teammate Brian Sheehan (fifth).

Quincy's Steven Dolloff (18th), Portola's Sean Marquette (21st) and Quincy's Danny Price (24th) had good runs. Quincy boys again won the day's race to fin- ish with an unblemished record. The combined Quincy team won the league championship by more than 200 points over Davis High School. Junior varsity action was also paced by Quincy boys. Chris Thompson (first) topped teammate Justin Murray (sec- ond). Dustin Groh (fourth), John Pettigrew (eighth) and Brett Marty (10th) set the stage for a win by the Quincy JV boys. Richie Bednarski (16th) also showed for Quincy. The Quincy JV boys also won the league championship.
