WSC Nordic team back on track

Conditions hard and fast

The track at Snow Mountain Ranch was cold, hard and fast for the WSC Nordic ski team last weekend. And, that was good for the team, which had several podium finishes at the competition just outside of Winter Park, Colo. “The venue was great and the tracks were very firm,” Coach Duncan Callahan said.
Late last season, Callahan began coaching the Nordic Team, which is part of the Club Sports program at Western. He liked what he saw in Snow Mountain Ranch this past weekend.
“Our team is showing a lot of promise,” Callahan said.
Western competes in the Rocky Mountain conference of the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA). On the women’s side senior Brittany Perkins had two podium finishes, taking second place in the skate and third in the classic race. For the men, senior Tom Sunderland and freshman Chris Lange took second and fourth place in the skate and fourth and second respectively in the classic.
Lange is also training with Callahan to try out for the National Junior Ski Team, which is available to skiers up to 20 years old.
Up next for the team are Grand Mesa Races the weekend of January 30. The WSC alpine team will begin their season January 23 in Steamboat Springs.
