LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Wisconsin's high school skiing wrapped up its season on Monday with the third and final day of the 2013 Alpine Championships hosted by Mt. La Crosse. When all was said and done, top honors in three categories remained in the Coulee Region.
On Sunday, Jack Pretasky of La Crosse Central-Logan turned in a second place finish in the Giant Slalom, which when coupled with a first place in the Boardercross, would be good enough for an overall state title. Meanwhile, a strong team effort by the Aquinas-Onalaska-West Salem (AOWS) squad allowed them to edge out meet favorite Verona, winning by just five points.
The temperature heated up on Monday, as did the competition. Last year's state champ, Central-Logan's Abby Leinfelder highlighted the girls events with a fourth place finish in the Giant Slalom after winning the Super G on Sunday. Leinfelder would not be able to defend her crown, however, taking second after all three events had concluded.
AOWS had another championship to boast after the final boys competitor crossed the line. Nathan Bartley's consistency, including a second place finish in the Super G, propelled him to the top of the final standings.
