The Sparta Varsity Girls along with the 7 other teams that have already qualified, will compete in the festive Petro Tune-Up Race. The 8 Teams Competing will be Sparta, Tenafly, Vernon, Ridgewood, Ridge, Pingry, Mountain Lakes & Sparta.
This is a tribute Senior race that honors the memory of former Newton racer Steven Petro. The Petro scholarship is awarded to a senior girl and boy who race in the Petro and submit a scholarship application.
No. Runs: 1 Run Giant Slalom & 1 Run Slalom
4:30pm Race Start
Each run is scored as a completely separate race so you can put in separate lineups for each event. So the GS run will count as a team time, and your 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 only 1 run per race in this case. In other words, the two runs are scored as 2 completely different races.
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.
The Sparta Varsity Boys will be dueling it out at the Petro Qualifier for a last chance to qualify for States.
Sparta Girls Won the Petro Championship in 2019 & 2020 - with ALL teams competing!
