Prep Sports Roundup: West girls, Petoskey boys win ski titles

BOYNE FALLS — Traverse City West's girls team and Petoskey's boys teams wrapped up Big North Conference championships on Tuesday at the final league meet of the season, the Gaylord Invitational, held at Boyne Mountain.

West, which has battled with Traverse City Central all season long, edged the Trojans in the final showing of the year 43-51. Petoskey was a distant third (83).

"We've been battling back and forth," said West head coach Ed Johnson. "It was a good day to see both teams have everybody stand up. Everybody finished. Hopefully the state meet goes the same way."

Both teams will be among the leading contenders to take the state crown at Monday's finals at Schuss Mountain.

Morgan Culp led the Titans with a second place finish in the slalom (1:11.31) and she was third in giant slalom (58.39). Central was paced by Lili Lockwood, who won the giant slalom (57.99) and was third in slalom (1:11.32).

Also for West, Ginevra Gabrielli and Claire Podges contributed a pair of top 10 finishes each. Gabrielli was fourth in giant slalom (1:00.27) and sixth in slalom (1:16.86), while Podges came in sixth in the giant slalom (1:00.88) and fourth in giant slalom (1:15.78). Devan Gordon rounded out West's scorers in giant slalom, taking seventh in 1:00.99, and Kitt Hornbogen was the fourth scorer in the slalom, placing 11th in 1:18.55.

Maggie Dutmers had a big day for Central, taking fifth in the giant slalom (1:00.51) and seventh in slalom (1:17.01). Devon Dotterrer was fifth in slalom (1:15.95) and 11th in giant slalom (1:01.48). Molly Whiting was the Trojans' fourth counter in slalom, where she was ninth in 1:17.41, and Bailey Versluis took 10th in giant slalom (1:01.46).

Petoskey's Mia Ciccoretti had the best day individually, winning the slalom (1:10.53) and taking second in the giant slalom (58.24).

Petoskey's boys ran away with the boys meet, scoring 40.5 points to outdistance TC Central, which had 71. Cadillac took third with 94.5 and Traverse City West was fourth with 115.
