Local Skiers Compete at Holiday Mtn. Event

By Rob Potter
BRIDGEVILLE — February 2, 2007 — Due to this winter’s limited snowfall and relatively warm temperatures, local high school skiers have not had many chances to hit the slopes.
But a cold snap allowed area ski resorts to make snow and open more slopes.
The cold weather also enabled the Orange County Interscholastic Athletic Association (OCIAA) to hold two slalom races at Holiday Mountain Ski and Fun Park in Bridgeville.
In Wednesday’s race, Onteora won the team competition in both the boys’ and girls’ divisions. The Onteora boys won with a combined time of 2 minutes, 4.44 seconds, while the Onteora girls prevailed in 2:14.88.
Monticello was second in the boys’ team competition with a time of 2:17.32, followed closely by Liberty (2:18.72). Fallsburg/Tri-Valley was fourth (2:21.04) and Sullivan West placed seventh (2:53.07).
Monticello also placed second in the girls’ team competition. The Lady Panthers combined time was 2:38.03.
Fallsburg/T-V placed fourth in 2:53.55, while Liberty was fifth (3:01.73) and SW finished sixth (3:02.56).
Onteora’s Tyler Bailey and Jessie Tar completed the course in 28.54 seconds and 32.71 seconds, respectively, to win the individual boys’ and girls’ races.
Following close behind Bailey were Liberty’s Justin Garritt (30.46) and Monticello’s Ryan Sonnenschein (30.77).
Other Sullivan County boys who finished in the top 25 included: 5. Christopher Egenes, Fallsburg/T-V, 31:48; 10. Matt Green, Liberty, 34.21; 12. John Bernstein, Fallsburg/T-V, 34.31; 13.
