Nordic Skiing Competes in Classic at Telemark NCAA Qualifier; Team Finishes Fourth

Posted on January 28th, 2007 by

The Gustavus Adolphus Nordic ski team wrapped up their weekend at the CCSA/NCAA Qualifier at Telemark Resort near Cable, Wis., by competing in classic technique races. The Gustavus women placed four in the top 25 overall, led by Sarah Willis (Jr., Willmar, Minn./Willmar) in 19th place. The Gustavus men were led by Scott Kyser (Sr. St. Paul, Minn./Highland Park), who finished 52nd overall.

Willis, who finished 13th among collegiate racers, completed the 10-kilometer race in a time of 30 minutes, 56.3 seconds. Willis was followed closely by teammates Kathryn Ladig (So., Bemidji, Minn./Bemidji), Laura Edlund (Jr., Forest Lake, Minn./Forest Lake), and Kelly Chaudoin (So., Ely, Minn/Memorial). Ladig posted her best finish of the season so far, finishing 15th among collegiate skiers (21st overall) with a time of 31:16.3. Edlund was right behind her in 16th place (22nd overall) with a time of 31:19.1, while Chaudoin was a few places back in 19th place (25th overall) after stopping the clock in 31:36.3.

Three other Gusties finished in a pack approximately 90 seconds behind their teammates. Kathleen DeWahl (Jr., St. Paul, Minn./Central) finished 29th (39th overall) with a time 33:08.7, while Allison Bohn (So., Plymouth, Minn./Wayzata) and Ritva Taipale (Sr., St. Paul, Minn./Central) finished 31st and 32nd (42nd and 43rd overall), respectively. Bohn crossed the line in 33:21.4, while Taipale recorded a time of 33:22.5.

Four Gusties took to the course for the 15-kilometer men’s race. Kyser’s 52nd-place time of 42:59.2 translated into a 29th place finish among collegiate skiers. Elias Anoszko (Jr., Dousman, Wis./Kettle Moraine) was the next Gustie across the line, finishing 31st among collegiate skiers (55th overall) with a time of 43:06.5, while Michael Paulson (Fr., Bloomington, Minn./Jefferson) finished a couple of seconds behind Anoszko in 33rd place (59th overall) with a time of 43:24.2. Mark Hartman (Fr., White Bear Lake, Minn./White Bear Lake) rounded out the Gustavus effort with a 47:39.5 clocking.

Northern Michigan’s Lindsey Weier took top honors in the women’s race with a winning time of 27:44.6, nearly 17 seconds ahead of Laura Valaas. Lars Flora of the Subaru Factory Team took the men’s race with a time of 37:45.5.
