I caught a few events at the State Championship meet this morning, which had skiers written all over it.
|Copley in the lead at 350m. Jordan Lamay in 4th (also blue/white singlet)|
Autumn Eastman (CVU) came through in 3rd place in the 1500m, along with other skiers in the B-finals Riley Carbone (MMU), Kathryn Maitland (CVU) and Acadia Dinardo (MMU).
Brendan Copley (Colchester) lead most of the 1500m A-finals, eventually finishing 2nd in 3:58.88. The winner broke a 26 year old State Record in a time of 3:57.4 or so. Other top skiers were also in that event, including Jordan Lamay (Colchester / Mansfield Nordic Club, 7th overall), Jake Van Buren (Burlington HS, 8th overall) and Jack Hegman (MMU / Burke Mtn / UVM, 9th overall).
