ConVal freshman Maura Rapposelli will be the lone local skier at Wednesday’s Alpine Meet of Champions on Wednesday at Cannon Mountain.
Rapposelli was one of 13 skiers from Division II to qualify for the state meet. The top 10 finishers from both the giant slalom and slalom events at the four divisional meets advance to Meet of Champions.
Rapposelli qualified after placing ninth in the slalom at the D-II meet on Feb. 14, also held at Cannon. Rapposelli had runs of 33.6 and 34.98 seconds to finish less than a second ahead of 11th place Risa Mosenthal of Plymouth.
At the Division II meet, Rapposelli had a top 20 showing in her first run of the giant slalom, but fell in her second attempt.
During the regular season, Rapposelli earned three wins and a runner-up finish. In her first high school race, Rapposelli came out with the victory. She led ConVal in each race this season.
It is the third straight year a ConVal skier has qualified for states.
