Eight  HVRC racers competed in the OhioPrints Slalom Race at 7 Springs on Sunday, January 20th.  Congratulations to G. Berner (U14), who finishes his first USSA race with two solid runs that put him just inside the top 10 fastest times.  He had lots of company! J. Allegro (U14) ended up 4th in this very competitive age group;  his finest effort to date.   J. Jupena (U18) finished 4th in his age group as well.  N. Blasey (U16) won his 2nd race of the year.  J. Bigatel and N. Castracani  gave HVRC a 1-2 finish respectively for U10 boys.  Congratulations to M. Hessinger (U12) with a 2nd place finish, his first ever USSA trophy.  All of these boys did well in a race that a number of racers had difficulty finishing.  C. Bigatel (U12) and J. Bigatel (U10) also competed in the Tussey Slalom at Ski Sawmill last Saturday.  Both earned 2nd place finishes in their respective age classes!
