Coach: Tara Eretzian (ninth year)

Conference: KVAC; Class: A

Last year’s results: Girls, conference champions, second in state; Boys, third in conference and state.

Returning letter-winners: Boys: Seniors — Evan Mancini, Dylan Blanchard, Owen Dillion; Juniors — Tyler Lafean, Trent Robbins; Sophomores — Tanner Dillingham, Gareth Robinson. Girls: Junior — Delia Demers; Sophomores — Brooke Lever, Anna Hathaway, Samantha Herrick.

Key losses: Girls: Allarie Lever, Hannah Johnston, Sophie Harris.

Promising newcomers: Boys: Sophomores — Jack Adams, Isaac Elliot, Steven Sinclair, Levi Sterling; Freshman — Andrew Bazinet. Girls: Junior — Bretteney Sanders; Freshmen — Hannah Arel, Keegan Moreau.

Season outlook: There’s rebuilding to be done on the girls’ side, where the Red Eddies lost double state champion Lever and their other top two skiers to graduation. The boys’ top six returns intact, suggesting that EL could make a strong run at conference and state honors. Dillingham (GS) and Mancini (slalom) each had a top-10 individual run at states a year ago.
