Today was cloudy and mild with temperatures in the mid 30’s at Titcomb Mountain in Farmington, Maine for day one of the NENSA U16 Championships. The girls race started at 3:00 p.m. and the course was well prepared. This fun, undulating course starts out of the stadium, and climbs up to the top of the mountain, before winding its way back down again into the stadium for a fast finish.
Lauren Lackman from the Midwest took third place today in 15:12, with her teammate Alice House in second with a time of 15:06. Ingrid Miller from Vermont won today’s race with a time of 14:44. In the boys race, Matthew Clark from the Midwest was third with a time of 13:16. It was a close finish for top two with Vermont skier Finn Sweet placing second in 13:10.9, and Cal Shrupp from New Hampshire taking the win with a time of 13:10.8.
