Results from this afternoon's Classic race at Elm Creek are now posted on the right side of the blog.
Abby Ellenbecker continues to show that she is going to be tough to beat this year in the NWSC and that she is aiming for even more, as she won her 4th straight conference race, finishing 11 seconds up on 2nd place. Lilah Gilyard also gained a top 10 spot with a solid 7th place finish as the two of them helped the Girls team to a 4th place team finish out of the 6 teams racing today.
The Boys team finished in 2nd place out of the 6 teams with Josh Thoen leading the way with a 3rd place finish with Ricky Petroff having one of his best races on the season finishing in 7th. The Boys had their top 7 finish 27th or higher, showing the teams depth.
There were many positive results and areas of improvement from all of the skiers. They took steps forward and took what they have learned in the past couple of practices and put them to use, despite the cold and windy conditions. It is always a positive as a coaching staff to see the improvement from practice to meets and it show us that the skiers really want to get better and reach their goals!
Thanks for all of those that braved the weather! Next up is the ABC Relay's on Saturday at Theodore Wirth Park. More information will be put out tomorrow.
