Second-year J4 alpine ski racers Amanda Stelling of the Hailey Ski Team and Connor Farrow of the Sun Valley Ski Team posted awesome wins at last weekend's Monroe Cup slalom and Lonnie Basolo Memorial giant slalom on Baldy.

In the 118-racer girls' class, Stelling was a 5.32-second winner in Saturday's two-run Monroe Cup slalom on Hemingway. She turned around Sunday and licked the GS gates for a 4.24-second win over Sun Valley J4 Teagen Palmer. Palmer was third Saturday.

Farrow was nearly as impressive in the 147-racer boys' field. He won Saturday's Cozy slalom by 1.70 seconds over J4 Blake Shott of Park City (Utah) and added a 1.79-second GS victory Sunday on Cozy over J4 Joseph Feldman of Snowbird.

Other weekend highlights included Sun Valley's Nicole Roos fifth place in the Basolo GS; a J5 slalom podium for third-place Josie Allison of Sun Valley; and J6 slalom victories for Sun Valley youngsters Abby Norton and Gabe Stone.

It was sunny Saturday and snowing on Sunday. There were 263 racers from Idaho, Wyoming and Utah including 92 from the race sponsors Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation and Hailey Ski Team.
