PERU -- In a driving snowstorm that saw eight inches of new snow dumped on the Wild Wings Cross Country Center, the BUHS Nordic skiers put on a great show for all of the parents and spectators who lined the trails on Saturday.
The 5 km classic style race, hosted by Burr and Burton Academy, was comprised of two laps over the Turkey and Grouse course. With the snow making visibility difficult and slowing the track, the Colonel varsity girls opened the day in great shape with Nevada Powers capturing 9th place (21:26), Catey Yost 12th (22:51), Eve Pomazi 16th (25:30), and Katie Reynolds 18th (27:00). Abby Malmborg of MAU, after a great performance last weekend, took the top spot in 18:47.
In the boys varsity race, won by Isaac Wright of Rutland (14:26), Declan King again paced the Colonels with a time of 17:55 to take 8th place. Oliver Pomazi was right behind in 9th (18:00). Jonah Koch, in his first varsity race, took 11th place (19:09). In his best race of the season so far, Colby McGinn finished in a tie for 15th with Spencer Loggia (19:46) and Tyler Clement broke into the top 20 in 20:44 to take 19th.
Gabe Britton finished in 4th in the JV boys two-lap race. Isaac Freitas-Eagan had another fine race in the middle school division, won by Rutland’s Willy Wright, as did Isabella Thurber. Liz Morse and Neveah Beauchamp were all smiles as they both finished among the top 10.
