Our Individual and the Overall meet results are now posted on the right side of the Blog. So everyone is aware, we only scored the A and B teams fro each school that was there today, so not all of our teams are in the results as well as those individuals.
Despite colder temps, the sun was shining, the winds were down, and the excitement levels were high as we got the opportunity to enjoy another fun and exciting ABC's Invitational Relays!! With some of the tops teams and individuals in the State participating, the Cardinal Skiers went out, competed, and held their own for a positive step forward in their development for this season.
Leading the way for the Cardinals was the 3rd place finish in Skate for Abby Ellenbecker. Lilah Gilyard continues her improvements and rise as she was able to gain a solid 10th place finish in the Classic race, as the both of them, Akala Lowe and Josie Ingvaldson took the Girls team to a respectable 11th place team finish. The Girls team showed a lot of improvements and all of the Girls fought hard in their races!
The Boys A Team had a thrilling race to the line as Jared Heida and Roseville crossed the line at the same time to finish in a solid 7th place team finish. Josh Thoen got the team off to a good start with a 9th place finish in Classic, Ricky Petroff helped with a 22nd place in Classic, and the Noah Christiansen was 15th and Jared 16th in Skate. The Boys overall team had another positive step forward and competed well against some of the best teams in the State. There is a lot of work left to do, but they are heading in the right direction.
