End of Season Stuff- 

  • If you are not skiing on the section team, competition is now done. We have talked to you about keeping your checked out ski equipment until the snow is gone so you can continue to ski on your own for fun. We encourage you to do this. 

  • If you are choosing to turn in your equipment now, there will be two opportunities this week to do so. Monday and Thursday after school until 4:00 Manon and Sarah will be in the ski room to check in equipment and uniforms.

  • Uniforms should be washed, folded and placed in the purple uniform bag. If you are keeping equipment, you can still check in your uniforms. 

  • Also, this will be your final opportunity to hand in coupon book money and pick up your sweatshirt. We do have a few books left if you are trying to win some gift cards. We have prizes for the top 4 sellers!


Banquet Info-

We will have an end of season banquet at the Falls Ballroom after the conclusion of the season. We are still finalizing the date and details. Stay tuned for more information!

Sections Info-

The sections team leaves tomorrow morning at 9 AM and race on both Tuesday and Wednesday at Maplelag Resort. We can't wait to see what these athletes accomplish!! GO FLYERS!

Yesterday at Maplelag, the Varsity Boys finished 2nd as a team in the 9K continuous pursuit. A continuous pursuit consists of a classic race, an exchange zone where the athletes must change out all of their equipment in seconds, and it finishes with a skate race. 

The boys were led by Ethan Yorek who finished 2nd. He was followed by Connor Grant in 4th. Elliot Oberton (11th), Edward Sobiech (14th), and Alexander Oberton (16th) finished out the team score. 

Other top ten finishes for the boys include a 10th place finish by Christian Oslund in the JV race and a 4th place finish for Nicholas Sprang in the Junior High race. 

The Varsity Girls finished 5th as a team in the continuous pursuit. Bath Ahlin led the girls in 11th place. She was followed by Aliza Kresha in 21st. Sarah Wolbeck (25th), Ainsley Kresha (33rd), and Molly Petrowitz (41st) finished out the team score. 

Other top finishes for the girls include a 7th place for Emma Catlin in the JV race and Ellyse Yorek (8th), Adeline Sobiech (9th), and Courtney Herdering (12th) in the Junior High race.
