Bulletin Board: Doyle 13th at ski States
Frontier Regional School’s Sean Doyle placed 13th in the slalom and was the top local finisher at the MIAA State Alpine Ski Championships Tuesday at Wachusett Mountain in Princeton.
Doyle, who finished second at the PVIAC Meet two weeks ago, raced through the slalom course in a time of 36.92 seconds to earn the best finish of any local skier on the day. The senior did suffer a mishap in the giant slalom and took 39th in that event. Still, in the final race of his high school career, it was a strong performance, according to Frontier coach Brett Saharceski.
“He skied well,” his coach began. “He had a slip in the giant slalom, but he recovered well and finished the race well enough to finish in the top 40. He then came back and had a great run in the slalom. He’s had a great season. I don’t think he could have asked for much more.”
Doyle hopes to continue skiing next year at college, although he’s still undecided where he will attend.
Mohawk Trail Regional High School’s Jon White finished 29th in the giant slalom with a time of 56.95 but was disqualified in the slalom and did not place. Teammate Luke Looman was the next quickest skier down the hill for the Warriors, with a 66th-place time of 60.41 in the giant slalom, and a 68th-place time of 40.11 in the slalom.
On the girls’ side, Frontier’s Ally Zera was the top local finisher with an 86th-place showing in the giant slalom at 65.29. The sophomore came in 121st in the slalom at 49.71.
Caitlyn Wilkins was the top girls’ performer for Mohawk, taking 101st in the slalom (47.07) and 107th in the giant slalom (68.46).
