Wiggs, Webb Top U16 at Hampton Cup

Posted on February 14th, 2014

WENATCHEE — The Mission Ridge Ski Team's James Wiggs and Jeffrey Webb placed one-two in the U16 portion of the Hampton Cup men's slalom on Sunday.

MRST's Cai Yamamoto won the overall title for the second consecutive day, while teammate Ben Holmberg was third overall.

For Wiggs (with a time of 1:32.28) and Webb (1:34.84), it was a bounce-back of sorts. Wiggs didn't finish Saturday's opening Hampton Cup slalom, and Webb didn't start.

Yamamoto, a U21 athlete, won in 1:24.77, nearly three seconds faster than runner-up Jarrett Grimm of Stevens Pass. Holmberg was clocked in 1:28.92.

In the Hampton Cup women's slalom, Mission Ridge's Haille Johnson, who was 29th overall in Saturday's race, moved up to the 18th-overall spot and seventh in the U14 classification on Sunday.

Teammates Shae Milne (26th overall, 14th in U14), Janae Wiggs (30th overall, 18th in U14) and Vanessa Carson (32nd overall, 20th in U14) rounded out the field for MRST.
