SUN PEAKS, B.C. – Cam Brewington of Calgary earned his first career victory on the Pontiac GMC Cup alpine skiing circuit on Wednesday leading the Alberta team to a medal sweep in the men’s giant slalom for a second straight day. Kelsey Serwa of Kelowna, B.C., notched a second straight win in the women’s GS.

Brewington, 19, clocked a two-run time of two minutes and 06.07 seconds. Jeff Crompton of Calgary was second in 2:06.45 and Geoffrey Irwin of Calgary third in 2:06.79.

‘’I’ve been working hard on my technical events and it’s starting to show,’’ said Brewington, 19, a bronze medalist in Tuesday’s first GS. ‘’I had two good runs today and really put it all together. I was smooth and skied soft on the edges.’’

Brewington dedicated his win to Jason Lapierre who coached him for a couple of years and died accidentally last summer at age 34.

Crompton hopes he’s turned around his season with his medal performance on Wednesday. He equaled his best result this season achieved at a Pontiac GMC Cup last December at Nakiska.

‘’It’s been a real roller coaster ride for me this winter,’’ said Crompton. ‘’I’ve struggled with confidence. Today I felt good and I was able to pick it up. I was probably just a little bit too conservative on the bottom part of the second run.’’

Irwin was happy to find the podium again as well.

‘’It’s been awhile, ‘’ he said. ‘’I was able to hold it together on the second run this time.’’

In the women’s GS, Serwa won both runs for the second straight day to take the gold in 1:59.17. Georgia Simmerling of West Vancouver was second at 2:00.66 and Alexandra Parker of Calgary third at 2:01.19. The top-three are all headed to the Canada Games which start later this week in Whitehorse.

‘’I tried to follow the same routine as yesterday (Tuesday),’’ said Serwa. ‘’I followed everything from the pre-race warm-up to what I was thinking about in the start gate. I’m really pleased to do this well. This was a very strong field.’’

Simmerling collected her third medal this week in four races.

‘’I made of couple of mistakes on the first run,’’ she said. ‘’In the second run I just went back to basics and attacked it more.’’

Parker earned her second medal of the competition.

‘’It was O.K.,’’ she said. ‘’I was smooth for both runs. The conditions were good and the course was in great shape which made for an excellent race.’’

The overall leaders after the Sun Peaks stop are Elli Terwiel of Sun Peaks for the women at 416 points and Brady Leman for the men at 540. Leman was sixth on Wednesday after three consecutive podium finishes –including two wins, while Terwiel is resting for the upcoming world juniors. She won the slalom races on Sunday and Monday.
