As far as surprises go, there certainly weren’t many to be noted from a Division 1 state ski regional at Pine Knob on Wednesday.

The Clarkston boys and Birmingham Marian girls figured to be the favorites going in, and that played out as each team punched tickets to the state meet in Marquette on Feb. 29 by winning regional titles.

The other teams headed to the Upper Peninsula weren’t much of a surprise, either.

On the boys side, Rochester Adams finished second and Bloomfield Hills third to also earn trips to the state meet, while the Bloomfield Hills and Lake Orion girls teams finished second and third, respectively, behind Marian to advance as well.

Maybe the best hope among girls teams from the southeast part of the state to win a state championship, Marian showcased its depth by placing three skiers in the top-10 in both the slalom and giant slalom events.

Freshman Olivia Weymouth was second in the slalom and third in the giant slalom, Breann Lunghamer was fifth in the slalom and eighth in the giant slalom, and Lilly Rachwal was 10th in the slalom and ninth in the giant slalom.

“They just demonstrated what a team effort can do,” Marian coach Rob Rhoades said.

The Clarkston boys scored big points in the slalom, with Max Wiedemann finishing first, Jacob McIntosh finishing third and Reis Wiedemann taking fourth for the Wolves in that event.
