Talented seventh-grader Maddie Montgomery also competed at Sectionals and scored a seventh-place in the giant slalom with a time of 1:21.82.
"They are both top ten in our section," says coach and high school teacher Jeffrey Dock. "Section two is one of the top sections in the state. It's very competitive."
