Rumford Eastern Cup Skate Race Recap

January 21, 2014

 

Pretty sweat to have the best skiers in New England in our backyard. Even better we have some of the best conditions in the East!  Checking in with other coaches I am blessed with our skiing, we have been skiing daily from the ski room with over 30km groomed between Gould and the Bethel Inn!

Fast, best way to describe Saturdays skate skiing.  With a young team Gould was well represented in the J2 boys category.  Andrew lead the group in 7th, followed by Caleb 10th, Marcus 24th, and Ben 32nd.  This was Marcus and Ben’s first Eastern Cup!!  Marcello was a lone soldier in the Mens race placing 70th.  With the last FIS points on the line before naming the Olympic team the field was full of some of the best skier in the US.

Leela and Rachael skied well in the women’s race chasing a strong group of Gould Alumni.  Leela was 55th and Rachael 65th.  Leading the Alumni were Sadie in 6th followed by Molly 6th, Lauren 24th, and Alice 41st.  I love seeing Alumni still skiing and racing fast!!
