Falcon Girls Take Second, Boys Seventh in Stowe

January 9, 2012

STOWE–The North Country nordic teams headed to the Mount Mansfield Resort Nordic Center in Stowe on Friday.
Christina Cotnoir was in attendance and said that, "The weather was mild and the atmosphere was festive! The race went quickly due to the mass starts. It was fun to watch as the skiers started en mass, furiously double-poling to gain a good position on the narrow trail which wound into the woods. The next time the skiers appeared was on the top of a hill. The spectators cheered all the skiers as they whizzed past us down the hill. Many spectacular crashes kept it exciting."
