Tressler, Abrahamson take freestyle races

Posted: Tuesday, January 30, 2001

Homer's Syverine Abra-hamson and Skyview's Adam Tressler won freestyle races Saturday at McNeil Canyon Ski Trails in the Homer X-Pursuit.

The pursuit was a pursuit in name only, since the event consisted of just one freestyle race for the boys and girls.

Tressler won the first varsity race of his career by skiing the 10-kilometer course in 34 minutes, 11 seconds. Tressler finished over a minute ahead of runner-up Brent Knight of Soldotna. Tressler also was one of four Skyview boys to finish in the top 10 and lead the Panthers to a team victory over runner-up Soldotna. Other Panthers in the top 10 were Micah Mohler (fifth), Jacob Fellman (sixth) and Leon Galbraith (10th).

In the girls race, Abrahamson won her first race of the year to lead the Mariners to a team victory. Abrahamson, who finished fifth in the state last year, has missed races this year to compete in biathlons. However, because biathlon always uses freestyle skiing the 7.5-kilometer girls race was right up her alley.

She won with a time of 24:44, 11 seconds ahead of runner-up and teammate Ida Martin. Amy Lambe placed third, 6 seconds behind Martin, to lead the Skyview girls to a second-place finish.

As of Monday, only the top 20 finishers in the boys and girls races were available to the Clarion. The rest will be printed when they are received.
