While it was touch and go for a while if the Dublin Nordic skiers were going to get to race due to a winter weather advisory in effect, in the end, in the wee hours of the morning, Coach Silitch and six Dublin Nordic skiers headed to the far north of New Hampshire to Whitefield, NH (almost to the border of Canada!) Coach Lindsey joined the team onsite. The day was buzzing with Nordic energy from high school teams all across New Hampshire. This was a gathering of the top Nordic high school skiers in the State of New Hampshire. There were four races held. A boys' A and B race and a girls A and B race. The results included a first place finish by Calvin Bates and some career bests for our younger skiers!
Highlights of the day:
· 10th grader, Calvin Bates takes the overall win in the boys 5km skate against some of the best high school skiers in New Hampshire.
· George Henry Werowinski placed 21st overall in the A race. This is his 2nd year Nordic skiing and a career best for the 10th grader.
· Other A race Dublin skiers were 10th grader Ryan Hyde, 34th & 11th grader, Hyelom Love, 61th out of 146 racers. Well done!
· Jared Lewis placed 16th in the B race. This is Jared's 2nd year nordic skiing and this is a top result in his career!
Tatum Wilson, a Dublin 11th grader, raced in the girls 5km A race with a strong finish of 22nd
The Dublin School Nordic Center opened in January 2014. The 7 km trail system, designed by John Morton of Morton Trails, provides the school with a state of the art training and racing facility to complement its long-existing 20km trail system. The trails are designed to be challenging and fun, with lots of twists and turns to keep young people entertained while developing important skills and balance for the sport. The Nordic Center is free and open to the public when not being used for school and regional events, and when conditions are safe for skiing.
