Nordic Ski · Girls Nordic is Section Champs and Statebound!

Congrats to the Eastview Girls Nordic Ski Team who were crowned Section Champions on a very snowy Tuesday at Hyland Lake Park Reserve!  The Lightning got off to a great start in the morning Classic race with five skiers placing in the top 15 overall led by Anna Schumann in 4th and Josie Roberts in 6th!  This impressive start gave the Lightning a strong lead headed into the afternoon skate race and they finished the same way they started with a total team effort to claim the Section 1 Team Championship!  Individually the team was led by Gabby Kraemer in 6th overall after both races and Josie Roberts in 7th.  The girls will now compete at the State Meet held at Giant’s Ridge in Biwabik, Minnesota next Thursday, February 14th.  Section/State Team Members include Seniors Annika Challgren, Kira Gunawan and Anna Schumann, Juniors Gabby Kraemer, Claire Nack and Josie Roberts, Sophomore Kate Helou and 7th Grader Emily Percival.  The team is coached by Brian Abery, Andy Dodds, Nick Hall, Ana Brakke and Maria Berg.
