?pm Race Start
The girls and boys teams who finish first, second and third at the Petro Qualifier will advance to the State Championships. Each run is scored as a completely separate race, so racer lineups may differ for each event. The GS run will count as a team time, and their slalom run will count as a team time. Those 2 team times will be added together to form an overall time just like States only it's 1 run per race in this case. In other words, the two runs are scored as 2 completely different races.
This is the absolute last chance to keep the season alive. It's all or nothing. The Petro will be one-run slalom and one-run giant slalom. Each team must have raced as a team in 3 conference league races or more.
Teams competing will be allowed to add additional seniors to their lineup that have submitted a scholarship application but would not necessarily have been on the team's top six racers.
