The Cook County/Silver Bay boys and girls Alpine Ski Teams took first and second Tuesday in the Centennial Invitational held at Giants Ridge in Biwabik.
The meet featured more than 15 other teams and about 220 skiers from the section. It is considered a pre-section meet.
The CC/SB boys beat the perennial power Hermantown by 12 points and the North Shore girls fell only a few points short of beating Hermantown. A consistent performance gave the CC/SB the strong team finishes. Both teams took enough of the finishes from number 12 to number 22 to push the boys to the win and the girls to take second.
The CC/SB boys who finished were: Will Lamb, 12th; Anders Zimmer, 13th; Logan Backstrom, 16th; Colin Berglund, 20th; Kyle Martinson, 22nd; Dexter Yoki, 52nd and Charlie Lawler, 77th.
The CC/SB girls who finished were: Megan Lehto, 12th; Morgan Wyrens Welch, 14th; Signe Larson, 16th; Ava McMillan, 17th; Madysen McKeever, 26th; Alyssa Martinson, 27th and Haley Yoki at 39th.
CC/SB travels to the Duluth Central on Thursday morning at Giants Ridge. Next Tuesday, the boys and girls head back to Giants Ridge for the Sectional meet.
