Section 9 Nordic has a long tradition of participation in cross-country skiing and striving to be competitive at the state level. No doubt you can imagine the challenge of keeping pace with the programs that are on snow much longer. Nonetheless we have managed to medal at several of the state meets including a State Champion in both the boys and girls race. To be at this level the kids need to get to snow and take part in the extra races offered through JOQ’s and/ or the Empire state races. If we do not have local snow we rely on parents to get kids to snow. The school can’t do this on a regular basis. When we do not have snow, Section 2 has welcomed us to join their races. The level of competition rises when we ski against athletes that are on snow a great deal more than us. What continues to bring the kids out every year, training in the cold, traveling on occasion to find snow, facing the grueling nature of the sport? Nordic ski offers a unique experience...a sport surrounded by natural beauty, one that can be continued for a lifetime, and demands camaraderie and commitment.
