Thompsonville, MI — Monday's Bryan Groenevelt Memorial Invitational at Crystal Mountain was a tough race for the Scots. The snow was a combination of loose sugar snow & ice, which made for a challenging day on the slopes for the Caledonia girls ski team. "Our team has three seasoned skiers and the rest are pretty new to racing, most have not raced a slope like Crystal Mountain's Buck and certainly not in the tough conditions that we saw Monday. The course maintance crew struggled to keep up with the piles of sugar snow that we bermed up on turns and anyone that got wide had trouble." Coach Petrosky, "Our newer skiers struggled with the conditions but we are proud of their effort. It was a challenging day for every skier." Mya Baldwin earned a 12th place medal in the Giant Slalom, which is the first medal on the girls team this year. Kyleigh Thompson led the scoring for the day with a 21st in GS and 24th in Slalom. Also scoring for the Scots were Erin Peckhan (24 SL & 33 GS), Liz Hilton (39 SL), Kayli Price (42 SL), and Jessica Maier (49 GS). The Scots are hoping begin their conference racing Wednesday Jan 25th, weather permitting. Team Standings: Grand Rapids Christian 42 Grayling 97 Mt.
