Hailey Ski Team J4 racer Delaney Willey posted a couple of technical triumphs last weekend when the Intermountain Division's North Series staged its 2004-05 championships at Grand Targhee Ski Resort.

Willey won Saturday's giant slalom by .33 seconds over J5 teammate Amanda Stelling, then the pair went 1-2 again Sunday in the slalom on Arrowhead ski run—Willey marching away with a five-second win.

Besides the podium gold medals captured by Willey and Stelling, the other podiums gained by Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation and HST racers last weekend were:

J3—Willie Adicoff bronze. J4—Gracie Brown silver, Miles Sweek silver, Nina Hirner bronze and Chase Caulkins bronze. J5—Teagen Palmer bronze and Cole Caulkins bronze.
