Preparatory alpine skiing: CEC’s Regas second in MLK race – Cloquet Pine Journal

SUPERIOR — Emily Regas of Cloquet-Esko-Carlton took advantage of the fast conditions and warm temperatures, finishing second in the Martin Luther King Day Race on Monday, Jan. 17, at Mont du Lac Resort in Superior.

Carlton’s combined two-run time of 1 minute, 15.57 seconds was just over a second behind race winner Margaret Duncan of Duluth Denfeld.

Regas is part of a strong girl group for Lumberjacks which also includes Madysen Watters, Teagan Tessier, Nadia Tessier and Lauren Radovich. Coach Ryan Zimny ​​said that although this is the Tessier sisters’ first season competing for the CEC, they have raced before, but not at the high school level. Waters and Teagan Tessier each finished in the top 10 on Tuesday for the Lumberjacks.

“We have a very strong team,” Zimny ​​said. “Emily is probably our best girl, but we also have the Tessier sisters who just came out this year. They’ve been running for a while, but not for the high school year, and then Madysen has been really strong so far. We have these four to give us our team score.

If all of these girls perform well, CEC could be in contention for a sectional title, but even if one fails, Laruen Radovich could step in and score well.

“She’s a really good sophomore runner, but she picks it up so fast,” Zimny ​​said. “When it comes to section time, we should be in the mix…and we’re young, so we should be good for a while.”

The CEC men’s team is not as strong, with only three riders competing in most competitions. The top finisher at Mont du Lac was Morgan Grove, who finished in 1:29.47, about 22 seconds behind winner Wyatt Shultz of Duluth East. With so few skiers, the Lumberjacks were unable to achieve team scores in some competitions.

“It’s a really good group of kids and they’re all getting better,” Zimny ​​said.

The Lumberjacks are then set to face off in a 5 p.m. meet on Friday, Jan. 21 in Lutsen.
