SMS alum/Middlebury freshman Heather Mooney and senior Paddy Caldwell depart with Sverre for Innsbruck, Austria today to compete in the Youth Olympic Games! Paddy & Heather will race 3 times: the 5/10K classic on Tues, Jan 17, a freestyle sprint on Thurs, Jan 19 and a mixed relay with the US biathlon team on Saturday, Jan 21. We’re really proud of both of them and excited to hear about their trip! More info on the YOG website.
GO USA!The rest of the team headed to Grafton today to ski on the loop. We classic skied for 90 minutes and got in some solid specific strength work. After a busy week of racing for the older kids, it’s really nice to get back to basics and just ski. A lot of kids made some big improvements with their double pole which was awesome to see.
