Runs were fast in Saturday’s giant slalom and nearly as fast in Sunday’s slalom races for the Juneau Ski Club at Eaglecrest.
“Once again Eaglecrest proved to be a fast technical mountain for race day,” JSC coach Daniel Ord said. “The kids also benefited from watching gold medalist Hilary Lindh come out for a race run and support the club. It was also nice to see the kids pushing their limits and getting out of their comfort zones. It makes for good fast fun competition.”
Sunday’s official results for J1-J4 classes:
Slalom Ladies: 1. Quincy Bates, total two-run time of one minute 25 seconds; 2. Rebekka Ord 1:30.98; 3. Adrienne M Audet 1:36.58; 4. Alexandra Hiley 1:44.51; 5. Jessica I Gregg 1:50.90; 6.

“These events wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support of club parents, Juneau’s avid outdoor community, and Eaglecrest employees working together,” JSC coach Patrick Shanley said. “The club continues to grow in numbers and ability and the younger athletes have excellent opportunity to grow by watching the older more experienced racers. We love to see these youngsters developing a life-long love for all the outdoor activities Juneau has to offer.”
Times or names were not provided by press time for the post-runners, the younger racers that ski after the official race and do timed runs on the same course.
JSC racers are two weeks away from the state cup
