The mountain biking team made their first trek up north to Rutland, VT for the opening race of the Lakes Region Interscholastic Mountain Bike Series. Twelve teams entered this first contest, held at the Pine Hill Mountain Bike Park. The course was fast and curvy, and Andrew Johnston and Sean Brown took advantage of the terrain to place 3rd and 4th, respectively, in the C Class race. Chris Brodie had a solid finish of 5th place in the B Class race. Sita Moses, in her first ever race, placed an impressive 4th for the Girls Class C race. Now that the first race jitters have gone, the team travels to New Hampton on Wednesday.
