Eastern High School Championship Qualifier Information

February 23, 2019 @ Black Mountain

1. If an alpine racer (Male or Female) comes in the top 15 in either discipline

(Slalom or Giant Slalom) at their respective state meet (class “A”, or “B”)

they may attend the qualifier for a chance to make the state team and

represent the state of Maine at the Eastern High School Championships.

2. The run order for the Qualifier is determined by the results from the state

meet. 1st place slalom “A”, 1st place slalom “B”, 1st

place GS “A”, 1st place GS “B”,  2nd place slalom “A”, 2nd

place slalom “B”, 2nd place GS “A”, 2nd place GS “B”, and so on.

3. The actual times are TBA, but the rough schedule is: Two runs of GS in the

morning and two runs of slalom in the afternoon. 

4. The state team is determined by the following: We take the best GS place and

add it to the best slalom place. That will be the athletes score for the day. E.g. if

an athlete gets a 6th place on the first run of the GS and a 10th on the second

run, we take the 6th place as 6 points. If that same athlete got a 4th on the first

run of the slalom and a 12th on the second run we would take the 4th as four

points. Add the best GS place and the best slalom place, that athlete would

have a final score of 10 points for the day. Any ties we go to the athletes third

best place.

5. The state team is made of of 12 males and 12 females with no alternates.

6. Athletes should only come to the qualifier if they are serious about joining the

state team. 

7. The EHSC is being held at Cannon Mountain, on March 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th.  Thursday, the 5th is a training day. Women & Mens Slalom on Friday 3/6. Saturday, 3/7 is Women's GS, Sunday 3/8 is Mens GS. 

8. Each athlete should come to the qualifier ready to write a check for $450

made out to Mark Cyr. The cost this year has gone down from last year. The entry fee at Cannon is considerably less than it was at Attitash.

9. The cost covers race fees, jackets, a pizza reception for the Maine team, a

banquet Saturday evening, and to help defer the hotel costs for the coaches.

10. The cost for the qualifier itself is $40. Checks made out to Black Mountain.

11. If an athlete was a member of the state team last year, but did not come in

the top 15 for either event at their state meet, they get an automatic bid to the

qualifier, and will run at the end of the order.
