Aspen High girls Alpine ski team wins at Beaver Creek, boys finish in second

The Aspen High School Alpine ski team continued its march toward the state meet with another strong showing on Thursday at Beaver Creek.

The AHS girls kept on winning, holding off second place Battle Mountain for the team title. The Skiers had four girls in the top nine, led by a first-place finish from freshman Edie Sherlock. Levyn Thomas was third, Tate Randel fifth and Annika Nickols ninth.

The AHS boys finished second as a team to Vail Mountain. VMS took the top three spots, led by another win from senior Michael Resnick. After that, it was all Skiers. AHS owned every placing from fourth to ninth, with freshman Noah Forman leading the pack in fourth.

The rest included Reed Beidleman in fifth, J.P. Simpson in sixth, Alex Ilic in seventh, Heath Colon in eighth, and Jake Bassi in ninth.

Aspen has one final regular-season meet. Friday’s trip to Loveland is a make up from the season opener that was canceled because of snow.

The state skiing championships, which includes Nordic, is scheduled for Feb. 22-23 and will be hosted by Lake County High School at Ski Cooper and the Tennessee Pass Nordic Center.
