On Wednesday, Cheshire High School skiers competed in their second race at Mount Southington.
Cheshire boys came in ninth (314.34). In his debut, freshman Joe Grenier led with a time of 46.42. Juniors Jeremy Bobruff (47.69) and Tyler Kochol (50.18) followed for the Rams. Sophomore Jack Lengyel (51.69), freshman Luke Hayden (53.74), and senior Andrew Hill (64.62) rounded out the scorers.
Due to not having six racers finish two runs, Cheshire girls didn’t qualify for a team score. Seniors Elizabeth Ingerson (59.3) and Erin Esposito (59.71), freshman Alex Gilson (63.78), and senior sisters Gabby Telese (64.09) and Emelia Telese (69.87) placed individually.
