Mesabi Results

After an adventurous start to the day and Arctic like temps that caused the races to be delayed two hours, and being shorthanded due to injuries, the Coon Rapids skiers held their own and had their best overall meet on the season so far and one of the better days for Coon Rapids at Mesabi in a few years.
Abby Ellenbecker led the way for Coon Rapids with a solid 19th place out of 131 in the Girls Varsity Classic, and Olivia Ellenbecker finished in 37th place out of 135 in the Girls Varsity Freestyle to lead the way for the Girls Varsity team that finished 24th out of the 54 teams that were there. Maddie Keran was 74th and Lilah Gilyard was 89th in the Girls Classic, and Izzy Haberman was 92nd and Sarah Eichstadt was 115th in the Girls Freestyle races.
Ricky Petroff was the top CR skier for the Boys Varsity gaining a top 30 finish in the Freestyle race, finishing in 28th out of 148 skiers. Jared Heida was 16 seconds behind to finish in 38th place and Mitch Zandaroski was 41st out of 142 skiers to help the Boys Varsity to a 21st place finish as a team out of 56 teams. Myles Gilyard finished in 93rd in the Boys Classic and Nick Jorgenson 104th in the Boys Freestyle Race.
The Boys JV was the top team performer for CR as they were able to finish in a solid 11th place out of 45 teams. All four JV Boys were able to finish in the top 40 of their races, which is big positive for the future of the Boys team as we had two first year skiers going, as well as two second year skiers who are just an 8th and 9th grader respectively! Noah Christiansen was 25th and Caleb Chesser was 35the in the Freestyle Race, and John Przybilla was 28th and Josh Thoen was 34th in the Classic Race.
The Girls JV was shorthanded the most due to injuries and we had on two Girls competing, one in each event, thus their team placing was affected by this. But, both girls had solid races with Addie Hoseck finishing in 44th in the Classic Raceand Katie Emmans 66th in the Freestyle Race!
Overall Meet Results can be found at this link:
I will have our individual results up later today.
As we move forward, Monday's practice will be at normal time but we will be going to Wirth, so we will be getting home closer to 6:00. Make sure all have their passes.  Also, as of right now, our meet on Wednesday is going to be at the Elk River Country a Club and will be a skate race. If there are any changes due to the weather, I will let you know.
Thanks to all that came and supported the skiers and helped with everything yesterday. It allowed us as Coaches to be out helping and supporting the skiers on their days!
