Michalak An “All American” After Competing In Alaska

This past week, Schuyler Michalak competed in Alaska representing Team New England at the Junior National Nordic Championships.  Just being selected to this event is a huge honor — only 15 girls from the five-state New England region were chosen to compete, and Michalak had earned this opportunity by placing in the top 15 in New England in U20/U18 combined division.

At at the Cross Country Junior Nationals in Anchorage, Michalak had top 20 finishes for all three of her individual events: she placed 19th in the 5k skate race, 9th in the classic sprints, 15th in the classic 10 k and 7th in the team relay skate. She also earned the official “All-American” designation after finishing among the top 10 in the nation in the Sprint Classic event.

Congratulations, Schuyler!
