ASHLAND—The trio of junior Amelia Volk, senior Frida Graumann and sophomore Anais Graumann has secured Ashland High School its second state championship in the team slalom in the past three years.

This accomplishment, perhaps the sweetest of them all, as southern Oregon’s ski teams only trained on a course designed for racing three times this season due to the lack of snow.

Volk posted a team-best time of 47.08 seconds in her first run and then topped it in her second with a 46.04 mark. The times combined placed her in fifth overall out of 97 participants.

The Graumann sisters posted nearly identical times, with Frida finishing 19th overall and Anais 20th.

With a team time of 05:01.72, the Ashland girls edged out Summit’s 05:02.18 mark. Hood River’s third place time was seven seconds off the Grizzlies' pace.

The team was presented with the state championship honor by Olympian Jacqueline Wiles—a Portland native. The title for Ashland comes after the same trio finished in third place in 2017.
