Steve is braving the cold weather to groom Saturday night for Sunday. Skiing should be great! Here is a photo from Dublin School’s practice on Saturday.
Five Dublin School skiers headed to Craftsbury, Vermont for some fun spring racing on Sunday with High Performance Team coach Kathy Maddock. Ninth grader Clint Macy had a strong qualifier and ended up in the consolation “King’s Court” competition where he ended up in second place! Juniors Aaro Virtanen and Quinn Wilson snuck into the top twenty in the qualifying round before going on to finish fifth and fourth respectively in their strong quarterfinal heats. Junior Agnes Macy and Senior Lilly Bates qualified for and ended up in the same quarterfinal where they finished sixth and fifth respectively. Alumnus Calvin Bates ‘17 won his semifinal and then unfortunately broke his pole in the final and finished 6th. Finally, Coach Kathy won the masters division of the classic sprint on Saturday! It was a fun day all around and great to see our friends from other schools and clubs.
We had a great time at Proctor yesterday. We broke the team up into two-person relay teams and competed in both the “A” and “B” races. Our skiers were confident enough to skip the “C” race! You can click on the photos below for a slide-show. Some of the photos are out of focus—my apologies! Congrats to all our first time racers!
Mr. Imhoff took some cool photos of our Development Team skiers training on our lighted snowmaking loop (fortunately we now have natural snow!). You can check them out here: https://dublinschoolnh.smugmug.com/Nordic-2018-2019/
Thank you all for your patience! You will be fully rewarded with some beautiful skiing. Thank you to Steve and Sean for the grooming.
