by Justin Scott
Last Wednesday in ski action at Cannonsburg, the Lowell ski team faced some tough snow conditions, but earned some good results nonetheless. In slalom, Kaylee Byrne took third for the Red Arrows. Colton Byrne took third in grand slalom, while Preston Sobeck took 17th in slalom.
At Caberfae on Friday, Kaylee Byrne would pace the Arrows in slalom along with Gina Redondo. Bryne’s time of 49.11 was good for third place.
In grand slalom, Kaylee’s time of 59.9 seconds was the only sub-minute result in the field of 64 as she took first place. Emma Schmidt was also one of the top two skiers for LHS in this event.
Cole Lillie led the co-ed team in the grand slalom with a time of 1:16.77 over his two runs. In the field of 65, Colton Byrne’s time of 1:04.91 was good for 35th place in slalom.
Regionals for the ski team take place next Monday at Caberfae.
