Sorry these didn't get up last night, but it took longer to do overall pursuit results than just normal results. But, all results are now posted on the right side of the blog. Please note, these are not just the Skate times, but both days and the overall time. So, it will let us know where everyone finished for the two days, basically where they finished yesterday at the end of the race.
A good two days of skiing though. A tough classic course on Tuesday in windier conditions to an easier course that was warmer and starting to get softer in spots and icier in other spots, so not always easy to navigate.
What was seen was just a good fight to the finish for all of our skiers. There was a lot of moving up and skiers going all the way through the finish. Abby Ellenbecker had a solid two days and easily taking the Overall win, prepping herself for next weeks Conference meet and letting everyone know that she is one of the favorite. Lilah Gilyard moved up yesterday and gained a top 10 spot, putting her into a good position for an All Conference finish next week.
The Boys moved up as a team and will have many fighting for All Conference or Honorable Mention spots next week. With 8 boys finishing in the top 27 bodes well for our depth. Josh Thoen was the top finisher with a 6th place Overall finish. Other top 20 spots went to Noah Christiansen, Jared Heida, and Aaron Casey, with Peyton Martinek, Myles Gilyard, Ryan Powley, and Michael Smith all in the top 27.
