(11) HVRC racers competed in the CTR Ski Tools/ Lars Skyling Classic GS at Seven Springs last Sunday.  Congratulations to J. Bigatel (U10) as he wins his first race of the year.  S. Rost (U12) earns 3rd place as she begins her quest to return to a derby.  R. Bigatel (U14) and N. Blasey (U16) each posted the fastest time in their age groups in one of the two runs.  Finally, kudos to J. Allegro (U12), who is improving and becoming more competitive in a very strong age group.  Thanks again to Eric Hessinger and Hidden Valley for their respective efforts to have the finish hut ready for last week’s race.
