Chris Marchini kicked out of the start and, leaning hard, cut down the south face of Hunter Mountain, slicing through the gates of the giant slalom. It was his second run in Sectionals. He knew it was a good one, but only at the bottom did he learn that he’d shaved 1.17 seconds off his time--enough that he qualified for States, along with teammates Rosie Binette (North Salem), James Bysshe and Luke Spieler.
In a season marked by a lack of snow and a lot of ice, John Jay/North Salem skiers have been consistently strong. What’s their edge? Commitment, on and off the slopes. MORE
