Alpine Skiing
Coach: Mike Grace (11th year)
Returning letter winners: Girls: Seniors – Jessie Brown, Krista Hakala; Juniors – Kristen Lindstrom, Marisa Hanning, Kayla Turner, Leslie Grover; Sophomores – Victoria Ebsworth, Samantha Hatch, Abby Smith. Boys: Seniors – Taylor Menezes, Zach Smith; Juniors – Nick Michaud, Ryan Stuart, Chad Jordan.
Key losses: Girls: Halie Gilman.
Promising newcomers: Girls: Junior – Claire Stauder; Sophomore – Mimi Baumhoff; Freshmen – Colleen Stauder, Amanda Hanning. Boys: Senior – Chuck Munn; Sophomore – Mac Menezes; Freshman – Ben Brown.
Outlook: Oxford Hills will miss KVAC skier of the year Gilman on the girls’ side, but Smith, a top-10 finisher at the Class A state meet, may be ready to step in. The boys will benefit from the return of Munn, who spent his junior year as an exchange student in Germany. Brown, Turner and Lindstrom also had strong 2008-09 seasons for the girls.
