Times and the snow were slower than first expected, but the skiers competed and did the best they could at today's Northwest Suburban Conference Meet. We were able to pick up 6 All Conference and 2 Honorable Mention as the Boy's finished in 5th and the Girls in 8th, despite missing one of our top skiers due to illness.
Our top overall finisher was Abby Ellenbecker in 6th place to lead the way for the Girls. Other Girls that received All Conference were Olivia Ellenbecker in 22nd, and 8th grader Lilah Gilyard who finished in 35th. Izzy Haberman was able to receive Honorable Mention as well!
Mitch Zandaroski led the boys in 19th place, with Ricky Petroff, 27th and Jared Heida, 30th, all receiving All Conference Honors. Paul Breitbach was able to come back from injury to get Honorable Mention.
Despite the slower that expected times, there were still a lot of major improvements by our younger skiers as they handled the pressure of a big meet very well, as they are giving themselves another step in their improvements.
Thanks to Paul and Rick for helping with the kick wax, and thank you to the parents/boosters for supplying food for all of the kids and coaches! Small things like this make a big difference in how the the day goes.
