Thanks to Coach Lindsey we were able to get a good number of our Dublin School athletes to Colby College to race in an Eastern Cup race. EC's showcase the top racing in New England during the season and provide opportunities to qualify for Junior Nationals and compete against the best college racers. This race turned out to be the Bates College Winter Carnival. Winter Carnivals are the big college races and are the qualifying races for the NCAA Championships. It is fun for our athletes to see where they stack up against college skiers. We were excited to see that two of the top ten skiers in the Carnival were graduates of Lakes Region Prep Schools, showing that prep school racers often peak in college racing. I personally feel that this happens because they are not specializing too early. Here are some photos from the event. The girls skied 3 laps of a 1.5 km course and the boys skied 6 laps.
