Sections was very exciting and we are extremely proud of how well everyone raced! The Boys raced 2nd at the Section 3 Championships on Tuesday and will be competing at State on Thursday!
The Girls raced 7th and did not have their best day. Everyone was a little disappointed, But racing is hard and sometimes it does not go as well as you would like it to. The girls raced with great heart and character and we are proud of how hard they worked and how they did not let up, even when it was hard.
The competition was very close for 2nd on the Boys side. Minnehaha Boys raced really well
and Washburn Boys made the race for second very exciting. Our Boys had good skate races and
moved up to take 2nd. Every athlete should be proud of their efforts and races.
Many thanks to Kathleen, Paavo, and Sasha for all of their work on making the skis fast. Many thanks to the parents and athletes that helped out at the start!

Boys Going up Last Hill in Second Lap
It was a bit of a train wreck going up the last hill in the Girl's Skate Race. The falling snow and deteriorating conditions made for very tough going. The girls did a great job fighting through it.
