Dublin, Holderness School and Northfield Mount Hermon vied for supremacy in the first Nordic Race of 2017 at Holderness School. A total of six and seven points separated the top three teams in each of the boys and girls categories.
On the boys side, Dublin School won for the first time in Lakes region competition against a field of 12 schools. The boys, led by GH Werowinski's (Acton, MA) #1 finish, defeated home team Holderness by 4 points. The boys won despite the absence of top skier Calvin Bates (Dublin, NH). Quinn Wilson 7th (Dublin, NH); Ryan Hyde 12th (Hollis, NH); and Yates Desel 28th (Fairfield, CT) closed out the scoring for Dublin.
On the girls side, Dublin School finished six points behind winner Holderness. Dublin dominated the podium capturing the #1 ( Lilly Bates (Dublin, NH)) and #3 ( Aggie Macy (Dublin, NH)) positions. Robyn McIntosh #10 (Chelsea, Quebec) and Olivia O'Rourke #25 (Peterborough, NH) closed out the scoring for Dublin. In a great sign for the future, three out of the four Dublin scoring racers were either Freshmen or Sophomores.
