No Surprise, Jackson Sweeps Alpine Skiing Championships Again in 2022
Another season of high school alpine skiing is complete. It was another that saw the Jackson Hole High School Broncs finish at the top.
They won both team titles and all four individual races during the state championship weekend.
After a dominant day on Friday in the giant slalom, where both the Jackson girls and boys swept the top five spots in the race, the Broncs finished off their latest titles with individual crowns on Saturday.
In the slalom, Jackson’s Taylor Smith won the race in 1:20.18. That was an over four-second victory over teammate Ava Ulmer (1:24.86). Natrona’s Elena Galles (1:25.36) placed third. Bronc skiers Madison Kramer (1:26.08) and Brynn Crabtree (1:33.43) finished fourth and fifth.
For the boys’ division, Jackson took the top four spots. Travis D’Amours won the slalom with a two-run combined time of 1:13.49. Teammate Nick Janssen finished a close second at 1:13.95. Jackson’s Owen Janssen took third at 1:15.76. Eddie Owen from Jackson (1:19.62) and Kelly Walsh’s Alex Yakel (1:26.77) were fourth and fifth, respectively.
The Jackson girls finished the two days of the state championships with 146 team points. Kelly Walsh was second (72) and Cody was third (58).
The Broncs also topped the team race with 146 points at the state championships. Natrona County came in second (64) and Kelly Walsh was third (54).
These are the results from the slalom and the final team results.
This is a recap of Friday’s giant slalom.
Jackson won its 13th straight girls’ team title and 39th in school history. They captured their 11th consecutive boys’ team championship and 37th in school history.
