Dublin School sent six skiers to race at the New Hampshire Coaches Association race series at Gunstock last Saturday to race in a short, 5km classic race. Our skiers are hoping to qualify for either the New England Under 16 Championships (top 22 U16's in NH) or the Eastern High School Championships (top 24 high school skiers in NH). Teams for these events are chosen after the second race next weekend in Plymouth, NH.
George Henry decided at the last moment to use his skate skis and double pole the entire race and it paid off! GH finished in 6th place and is in a solid qualifying position heading into the second qualifier. Quinn finished 35th overall, but was 5th in the U16 category and the top 14 year old in NH. Calvin finished 7th, Ryan 42nd and Yates 131st out of 150 skiers in the varsity race.
In the girls' race Agnes finished 14th and was the 6th fastest U16 skier. Robyn finished in a qualifying position in 19th and Olivia stepped up into the varsity race finishing 124th.
The team had a fun day and we are excited for the skate race next week!
