Post Sections

Such a wonderful day of racing. For all the seniors I think Maplelag was a proper sending off point.  Thanks for all the smiles. Hope you enjoyed the ride. Have a great life.

Gabby and Wren, 2nd and 3rd for the ladies. Tennessee was 10th. All three qualified for the STATE MEET.
The girls Team took 3rd overall!
The boys Team was 5th.

Weekend ahead & Season wrap up

Friday: ski.
Saturday ski. Riverside.Team waxing at Tech for Section skiers. Get the base layers in.
  Check back for Times (waiting for a few inches of fluff to fall first so maybe late afternoon.)
Sunday: Section Team Pasta Feed: check emails for details.
Monday: depart for Maplelag
Tuesday: race of your life.

Jr Highers and why I love them. It was cold yesterday! Didn't phase them. Never complained once. Temps are simply numbers. It was race day and they were game. Not a single complaint. I lost half my face out there and I didn't go down the hill at 20mph. They just did work:-) Big props to the little ones.

Everyone with Team Equipment you can keep your skis till March. It will inevitably snow after the season, so go enjoy it when it does. I'll send out e-mail reminders.
PLEASE WASH UNIFORMS and return to me in Room 178 anytime during the school day.

Into the Weekend, Sections update

Friday: Hamster wheel. Feels like spring. Bring the sunblock.

CLC was great. SO many successful races! Congrats to everyone. Tennessee is the new CLC skate champ. Matty T, Gabby and Wren all brought home bronze medals. Both Teams were 2nd overall!
Any JV skier that survived that Mass Start had a small victory as well!

Alex info on the flyers tab.

Saturday morning practice for Varsity, JV optional, but would love to see you out there. More info at practice today.

If you haven't already, dial it in. Diet, hydration, rest, sleep. Maybe at Snowball this weekend shut it down at midnight vs. 2am;-) small things to stay healthy.

Sections have been moved to Maplelag again this year.

Wednesday, Thursday

Thanks for being so adaptable today. Things just jammed up too much on the single hill.
Great practice and effort these last two days. These conditions are obviously poor, but this is what we have. Let's continue to make the most of it.
We'll look for a medium distance ski tomorrow with race prep drills for the CLC Championship.
I did hear Varsity will be wave start.

Dismissed at 10:40. Bus leaves at 11.
Return home: 6:30ish

Saturday practice. Varsity skiers leave your morning open for a practice. JV is more then welcome but Varsity is expected.

The remaining schedule:
CLC, Thursday (limited roster, no JH)
Alex, Tuesday the 30th (everyone:-)
Jr High Champs Thursday the 1st.
Sections the 6th. Location will be determined this Friday.

Sunday, January 21, 2018


CLC Championship is in Brainerd this Thursday. Schedule on the flyer tab.
Roster will be posted at practice tomorrow.

These are the final two or three weeks of the ski season. Decide how you want to finish your season. You can make tomorrow just another practice or you can take that final step in becoming a better skier. With limited snow make a dedicated effort to change.
I hope everyone who raced in Bemidji came away motivated and with a clear idea of what improvements or gains you need to meet your goals.

See everyone tomorrow at Riverside.
