February 20-21 saw a fantastic weekend of racing for the Mighty-Mites at Stevens Pass for the annual WildKatz event.  Weather was great and the race venue challenging.  CMAC racers enjoyed excellent results with coaching from Tom, Tad and Ryan.

On Saturday in the Giant Slalom for the Ladies, in the U10s, Quinn Dennehy grabbed 4th, Paisley Bigatel 9th, and Ellie Trulson 10th. In the U12s, Aleah Watterson was 8th.  In the U14, Claire Walters scored 2nd, and second overall for the day.

For the Mens Giant Slalom in the U8 class CMAC crowded the podium with Gabriel Caccia in second and Gavin Trachte 3rd. In the U10 group, Sawyer Krohn took 2nd.  For the U14s, Ethan Golik was 8th.

CMAC really showed its strength and depth in the U12s with 6 racers in the top 10.  Ollie Loeser won the race, Ben Albrecht was 3rd, Tristan Krohn 5th, Tanner Stines 6th, Gunnar Trachte 9th, and Andrew Minor 10th.  A photo of the mostly CMAC awards ceremony is below.

In Sunday’s Slalom for the Ladies, Claire Walters took the top step, winning the U14 class (2nd overall). Aleah Watterson was 9th in the U12s and Quinn Dennehy scored 4th in the U10s.
