The Johnsburg Nordic Ski Team Coach Gary Wilson and Assistant Coach Steve Tomb are looking forward to a new season with their varsity and modified teams.
“This year’s Nordic team has a lot of experience and hard workers,” Coach Wilson said. “We are looking to work on racing technique for all skiers and to place in the top three for Section 2.”
Varsity boys skiers to watch in the section are Ethan Cooper, Terry Allard, Aidan Connelly and Moses Mulvey.
“These guys will be in the top group of skiers all year,” Coach Wilson said.
The varsity boys will be supplemented by some strong new skiers.
“We have high hopes for Nate Prouty, Evan Riedinger, Patrick Kushi and John Pierson,” Coach Wilson said.
The girls varsity team has upper classmen Shiloh Wood and Colleen Fuller.
“The younger Laura Richards, Anna Liebelt, Fiona Fahy and Gillian Hayden are looking strong in practice,” Coach Wilson said. “Charlie Riedinger, a first year skier will be a great asset to the team’s depth.”
The modified squad comes with a lot of skiing experience and will be developing strength and form as the season progresses.
The Nordic teams begin their season at home Dec. 18 at the Garnet Hill Lodge & Cross Country Ski Center in North River.
