School skiing: Streaks’ Mottau brings home Alpine gold
Saratoga Springs junior Kieran Mottau must have gotten tired of seeing silver.
After finishing second in the Section II championship giant slalom two weeks ago, and tying for second in slalom at the New York state Alpine championships Monday, Mottau finally grabbed the gold in the state giant slalom Tuesday at Bristol Mountain.
Mottau was timed in 1:50.29, beating out Hunter Doyle of Pittsford-Mendon (Section V), who had a 1:50.33.
CBA’s Michael Morecki was ninth in 1:54.28.
Section II was second in the overall boys’ team championship.
Elle Daley of Albany Academy was eighth in the giant slalom, and Julia Sante of Queensbury was 10th.
Section II won the overall boys’ team championship on the second day of the Nordic competition, which featured three-person relays, at Harriet Hollister State Park.
Queensbury finished second in the girls’ division, and third in the boys’ division.
Shenendehowa senior Austin Huneck, who won the boys’ individual championship on Monday, and Emma Underwood of Lake George received the sportsmanship awards for Section II.
