Second Crescent Ski Race Report by Kevin Cleek

Chattanooga Cleek Team and Megan lined it up again at Appalachian Ski Mountain for the 2nd race of the season.  The team again worked its magic and held on to 4th place overall.  Individually, only Ben Cleek made it to the podium, but a sibling rivalry seems to be developing in division 2.  Team Captain Kevin Cleek, competing in unfamiliar territory in Flight 3 Saturday, found himself on his back on his first run and finished last, followed by a clean run where he finished 2nd from last.  On Sunday, he moved up to 5th in the giant slalom.  Cody Cleek, also racing above his pay grade found himself in 5th place both days.  He did place 2nd in his first run Sunday, but he too managed to leave a body-sized divot on the course on the 2nd run.  Megan Wigginton gave a stellar effort both days finishing 7th and 8th, but leaving no permanent marks in the course.  Ben Cleek took a 3rd Saturday and a 6th Sunday.  He is presently leading the field in "Most Improved Racer" points, and hopefully nets himself a prize at the end of the season.  But the real story is Beverly Cleek who found her idiot husband had inadvertently entered her to race, so she did, and qualified for the first time ever.  Welcome to the team, Bev.
