State Skiing Review


Matthew Potenziani, Reporter

Six demons went to the cross country skiing state championship to compete for Aspen, and were able to secure both boys and girls championships. They were helped by Emma and Elizabeth Barsness placing top ten in both races, out of more than 70 skiers they were able to take 6th and 10th in the first race and 3rd and 4th in the second race. When Emma was asked if she had a different mindset for state compared to the usual races she replied “Not really, it’s a big deal but it’s just another race.” Emma Barsness was able to place junior nationals for the second year and will go to California to compete against other u18 skiers from all over the country.
