Rockford High School downhill ski racers completed their regular season with a race at the steeper, longer slopes of Caberfae on Jan. 29 and the final race at Cannonsburg on February 2. In the end, Rockford boys’ team finished in first place in both events, well ahead of the favored East Grand Rapids boys’ team and last year’s conference champion, Grand Haven. It was a combination of strong individual finishes and the depth of the team that allowed RHS to claim these results. RHS boys consistently had all of their team finishing in the top 20. Team results for the last 2 races of the season were as follows: Caberfae Boys Race 1st—Rockford – 64 points 2nd—Forest Hills Central – 109 3rd—East Grand Rapids – 114 4th—Forest Hills Northern – 117 5th—Grand Haven – 185 Cannonsburg Boys Race 1st—Rockford – 65 points 2nd—Forest Hills Central – 122 points 3rd—East Grand Rapids – 137 points 4th—Forest Hills Northern – 149 points 5th—Grand Haven – 174 points Caberfae Girls’ Race 1st—Grand Haven – 66 points 2nd—Forest Hills Central – 94 points 3rd—KHLCP – 126 4th—Forest Hills Northern – 146 points 5th—East Grand Rapids – 176 6th— Rockford – 201 Cannonsburg Girls’ Race 1st—Grand Haven – 61 points 2nd—Forest Hills Northern – 103 points 3rd—Rockford – 127 points 4th—Forest Hills Central – 137 points The Caberfae race was cold and windy, as usual, and was very challenging, even for the top racers, with several falls and mishaps due to the tougher conditions. Rockford boys were able to show the strength of their team with a top place finish overall. Their strongest showing was in the slalom event with all 6 racers in the top 20. Michael Dix led the scoring with a first place finish with an overall time of 49.80, nearly a full second ahead of the 2nd place racer. Rounding out the scoring for Rockford was John Milewski in 5th (51.95), Ben Avink 6th (52.08) and Taylor Noakes 7th (53.15). Travis Fleming finished in 10th place (56.14) and Casey Hefferan in 18th (59.69). A perfect team score is 10 and Rockford scored 19 in the event. In the GS event, Avink led the team with a 5th place finish and an overall time of 1:00.48. Dix placed 8th (1:02.05), Milewski 13th (1:04.93) and Fleming 21st (1:06.87). Noakes and […]
