The Nordic Team traveled to Vermont Academy for a fun and informal first race of the season. The race format was a pairs sprint race using the skate technique. We created 15 teams of two skiers, some skiing in a six lap experienced race and others skiing in a two lap beginner race. Each skier would ski a lap and then tag their partner, ski a lap, then tag, etc.. It was a particularly exciting day for our first time racers, many of who have only been on snow for a week! We are fortunate to have a nice balance of beginner, intermediate and very advanced skiers.
Our experienced skiers dominated the race, winning all three categories, the boys' relay (Ryan Hyde (Hollis, NH) and GH Werowinski (Acton, MA)), girls' relay (Robyn McIntosh (Chelsea, Quebec) and Aggie Macy (Dublin, NH)) and mixed relay (Lilly Bates (Dublin, NH) and Calvin Bates (Dublin, NH)).
Congratulations to everyone for a great first race!
