That's a WrAP!!
Mar 15, 2021, 7:48 am

There are only 3 rules on this team. 

1. BE A GOOD PERSON

   2. BE A GOOD STUDENT.

    3. BE A GOOD ATHLETE.  

In that order. 

 

The State Meet was a star studded event, and Mother Nature provided the stage to make it perfect!  

Giant's Ridge went from looking sad & desolate, to happy & beautiful overnight.  What a treat to provide all the best skiers in Minnesota, a mid winters dream to conclude the 2021 nordic ski season. 

 

Our team notched an incredible last high school race performance by Lydia too!  Lydia skied her best races of the season, a classic finish at 13th (13.51), followed up by the skate competition at 29th (12:35) to get her overall standing to an awesome 17th place finish for the 2021 State Meet.  This means an ALL STATE status, along with being the 3rd fastest girl in Section 7.  It was a thrill to see her end on such a high note!

                                                                                                        

     

What else is up??

COACH CJ:  RESIGNATION: effective now.  

 

The past 16 years that I have been involved as a ski coach, has truly been a gratifying experience, and serving the last 11 years as head coach is immeasurable.  

My enjoyment of coaching so many great student athletes to learn to ski and race, ultimately love nordic skiing, and guiding them to be their best selves - on & off the ski trails - were my top priorities.

Success was always an extra bonus.

 

Working with Coach Jack, Coach  Austin and all the others, has made coaching fun and rewarding & Section 7 coaches are an incredible group of people to spend the winter months with too. 

 

With a new season to come, my hopes are that a super sized, wonderful new coaching staff will come into play and continue the tradition of a fantastic ski team, fast ski racers and the best kids to work with,

all year long! 

 

My appreciation to all of you, who have made this team rock & roll for my 16 years.  

THANK YOU   THANK YOU  THANK YOU!! 

 

See ya on the trails! 

 

CJ
