Scott USA won the team title of the 19th annual Sun Valley Town Series of dual modified giant slalom races Wednesday on Baldy's Cozy ski run.

On the Scott USA champions were John Zuck, John Reagle, Toby Arnett and Jeff Page.

They finished with 0.26 points for the seven-week, 28-team series, well ahead of second-place Casino Dancing Bears (1.38) and third-place Wood River Masonry (1.48).

The Casino Dancing Bears featured Neil Jessen, Kevin Doyle, Paige Griffith and Franny Hjort. On Wood River Masonry were Wes Powell, Cam Fraser, Chase Gouley and Jason Haase.

Rounding out the top five at the end of the 2010 season were fourth-place Drunken Blumkens (Ash Higgins, Frank Fiaschetti, Will Roth and Mike Stevens, 2.08) and fifth-place Rainbow Warriors (Dan Kurdy, Alan Rickers, John Summers and Jim Shannon, 4.70).

Names of the 20 skiers on the top five teams were drawn at Wednesday's Apple's Bar & Grill awards party—with four winners receiving free 2010-11 Sun Valley season ski passes.

They were Franny Hjort, Will Roth, Toby Arnett and Jason Haase. Town Series organizer Mike Wrobel said Hjort's selection was particularly appropriate, since she had never won before and she and Chris Key are the only ones to compete in all 19 Town Series.

Meanwhile, the fastest skiers Wednesday were familiar faces; indeed, two of Baldy's best who have each won five of the seven Town Series races this winter. They were Robin Sarchett and Erika Hogan.

The top 25 racers out of 86 in Wednesday's combined two-run format finale were:

Robin Sarchett 51.83, Carlo Rixon 52.55, Nate Schwing 52.77, Matt Murphy 54.01, Wes Powell 54.64, John Campbell 55.51, Erika Hogan 56.65, Sarah Mazzola 57.39, Ashley Brown 57.47, Christine Cordeau 57.50, Chase Gouley 58.89 and Dan Kurdy 59.81.

Also, Will Hovey 59.90, Frank Fiaschetti 59.96, Mike Gowe 60.16, Alan Rickers 60.18, D.J. Hart 60.28, Ash Higgins 60.60, Peter Stevenson 61.04, John Summers 61.21, Tyler Corrock 61.68, Mark Masur 61.78, Will Roth 62.01, Mike Stevens 62.10 and John Reagle 62.81.

Chris Key and Chris Campbell came closest to the rabbit time of 69.49.
