Members of the ConVal Nordic team travelled this past Wednesday to Plainfield to compete in their first of the season classic race against Lebanon and Hanover.
Co-captains Eva Calcutt and Cami Hendrixson led the Cougar girls in the 5K race, taking two laps respectively around an old airstrip and a challenging hilly route in the adjacent wooded terrain.
Senior Eme Tyler-Wall and first-year skier Laura Phillips followed Calcutt and Hendrixson across the finish line.
The sole Cougar boy competing, novice skier Nathan Klonel, posted his first finish in a very competitive field.
ConVal’s next race will be at the Dublin Nordic Center on Wednesday, February 3.
