The Manchester Essex alpine race team had a shortened week of racing due to the rain and inclement weather during the first week in February.  It was a difficult week of racing for the Hornets, with both the boys and the girls competing against league powerhouses. On February 3, the girls faced off against Austin Prep, losing 53-82, then Masconomet, losing again 9-126. "Masco has some very impressive skiers this year. They are talented and very deep; they have a real shot at winning the whole thing during the state tournament,” said head coach Tim Wonson. "It was also difficult for us having Hannah Hubbard out sick."
