XCFeedsSr. Nationals Week Opens With Classic Sprint Race

Avatar Sverre CaldwellNovember 3, 2012

 We started our “Nationals Week” with a classic sprint race this afternoon. Everyone skied a prelim and 3 heats on an uphill course at Ball Mtn. Dam. We started at the dam, came up the hill, did a short loop through the parking lot and then continued up over the top of the hill, finishing with a gradual downhill.

 Tyler tries to hold off Koby. He couldn’t do it in the prelim. Here are the boys times:
Skyler  3:09
Paddy 3:27
Koby  3:28
Hamish  3:29
Gino 3:41
Tyler 3:54
Adam  4:04
Scott  4:24
Russell 4:24

 Russell looks good with Adam W chasing.

 Ana has been fighting a cold so she just skied the prelim.

 Sophie gets advice from Gus and Matt. Her plan….double pole the whole thing.
Here are the girls results:
Sophie 3:53
Katharine  4:08
Brooke  4:16
Mackenzie 4:23
Kate  4:40
Mollie 4:42
Ana 4:48
Tegan 4:50
Pippin 4:53
Tess 4:55
Alex 5:11

 Scott looking stylish in tights and shorts.

 Since Skyler had faster skis he had to start behind the rest of the boys. Here he is catching them in a heat. (oh…it wasn’t just ski speed 🙂  ).
