Veteran BC Ski Team athlete Scott Anderson proved a little more of his mettle Sunday rallying to finish second in the Hershey Cup men's slalom in Panorama, BC.

Anderson, a native of Rossland, crossed the finish line in a two run combined time of one minute 49.04 seconds. Fellow BC Ski team member Graham Kraft of Vernon was 13th on the day in 1:52.68. Rookie BC Ski team athlete, Dustin Fraser of Quathiaski Cove on Vancouver Island put down two solid runs, starting in 57th place to cross the finish in 22nd in one minute 55.16 seconds.

Men's coach, Dale Stephens was pleased with Sunday's slalom results, “today was good for Scott, a starting point to build from,” said Stephens. “The guys have been speed training for the past three weeks and yesterday's slalom was their first technical race. The second slalom today produced much better results and finishes for the guys.”

Trail's Aaron Civitarese was fourth, starting 19th, in 1:50.04 and Whistler's Jamie Finlayson rounded out the top-10 in 10th in 1:51.83, starting in 22nd.
