LUTSEN - Brainerd Warriors Alpine skiing teams continued to roll Thursday as the boys' team won the Moose Mountain Invite and the girls' team was second behind Duluth East.
The victory was the boys' team's seventh in eight invites in which it has participated. The only meet Brainerd hasn't won was the 26-team Wild Mountain Invite on Dec. 19, which occurred before the team had practiced on snow.
Other than the Wild Mountain Invite, Thursday's meet was only the second in which the girls' team has finished second, both times to Duluth East.
Bror Linnerooth was second, Thomas Ruttger third and Rian Hutchison fourth in the boys' race for Brainerd.
Taryn Ruttger was third in the girls' event followed by Savannah Stone in fifth place, Katie Hutchison in 10th and Andrea Cibuzar in 12th.
Brainerd's meet scheduled Friday at Alexandria was canceled due to wind chill.
