All-CCSA Team Announced

February 18, 2010

The CCSA named its men’s and women’s first and second all-conference teams Wednesday. The All-CCSA teams recognize season-long achievement and were based on points given out in each race. The top 20 finishers received Super Tour Points (points were awarded in each race by a 30-25-21-18-16-15-14… pattern) for each race and the points were added up to get the teams. The top 5 points-getters made the first team, while the next 5 were named to the second team.

The Northern Michigan women had two skiers, Christina Gillis and Laura DeWitt, named to the first team. Alaska’s Aurelia Korthauer, Michigan Tech’s Riikonen-Purtsi, and Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Carolyn Freeman rounded out the squad.

NMU also had two skiers on the men’s first team. Wildcats George Cartwright and Kevin Cutts made the team, joining top points-getter Santiago Ocariz (Wisconsin-Green Bay), Michigan Tech senior Oskar Lund, and Gustavus Adolphus’ Jens Brabbit.

The women’s all-CCSA second team displayed the depth of both Northern Michigan and Alaska. Monica Markvardsen and Marie Helen Soderman represented NMU while Theresia Schnurr, Julia Pierson, and Anna Coulter were named for the Nanooks.

Michigan Tech’s Jesse Lang and Jesse Smith each represented the Huskies on the men’s second team. They were joined by Tim Cook and Chris Bowler of NMU, and Alaska’s John Parry finished out the team. Complete individual point totals are listed below.
