Laramie High senior Nicholas Fadial ended his prep alpine skiing career as a two-time All-State honoree.

Fadial led the LHS skiers with a sixth-place finish in the giant slalom Saturday at the Wyoming State Alpine Skiing Championships at Snow King Mountain Resort in Jackson.

Fadial had a two-run combined time of 1 minute, 56.77 seconds. He was also seventh during Friday’s slalom racing.

His two-day total of 25 All-State points placed him in the 10th and final spot for the honor. The Wyoming Coaches Association determines All-State by race point totals throughout the season for the top 10 boys and girls. The format is based on the International World Cup guidelines.

The Plainsmen finished fourth with 28 overall points. Other LHS boys to finish the giant slalom courses were sophomore Tim Considine (22nd, 2:14.45) and senior Jack Nyman (26th, 2:22.87).

The Lady Plainsmen finished fifth in the team standings with 22 points, led by senior Brooklyn Pratt. She was 12th in the giant slalom in 2:02.03 and was 10th in Friday’s slalom. Pratt, who was an All-State skier last season, finished 12th in the standings this year.

Also completing both giant slalom runs for the Lady Plainsmen were sophomore Isabelle Spivey (17th, 2:10.93) and freshman Maya McReynolds (21st, 21:19.01).

Jackson swept the team titles by a large margin. The Jackson boys have now won eight straight titles and 19 overall. The Jackson girls now have 10 straight titles and 28 overall.
