Races were delayed this morning at Titcomb Mountain in Farmington, Maine for U16 Championships. The 5 km individual classic race was delayed until 12:00 p.m. for the girls and 1:30 for the boys. The afternoon sprint races were cancelled. The temperatures rose slightly for race time, but the wind was still a factor in the start area. The format changed to three in a wave every 30 seconds so that skiers could start closer to the shelter of the woods. There were many helping hands at the start of the races to keep skiers warm with blankets, before they headed off into the woods for their races.
Ingrid Miller from Vermont came in third place today with a time of 17:50, and Maine skier Isabelle Jandreau took second place with a time of 17:33. Winning by one second from Vermont was Adrienne Remick with a time of 17:32. In the boys race, Linden Niedeck from Massachusetts placed third in 14:55, Cal Schrupp from New Hampshire was second in 14:50, and Vermont skier Finn Sweet won the race in 14:40.
Tonight the banquet was held at The University of Maine at Farmington for a delicious pasta dinner and all the fixings. During dinner, a bib draw was held for some great raffle prizes donated by local sponsors. The top 10 boys and girls in both the skate and classic individual events were given hand made wooden medals, and the top three were given maple syrup as well.
The top three overall individual awards were given off of accumulative points from the two individual events. For the girls, Andrienne Remick from Vermont was third, Isabelle Jandreau from Maine was second, and Vermont skier Ingrid Miller was first overall. Third place overall was Linden Niedeck from Massachusetts, and in a tie for first place was Cal Schrupp from New Hampshire and Vermont skier Finn Sweet.
