Tiger skiers dominate at Woodstock Nordic event
WOODSTOCK — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ and girls’ Nordic ski teams swept 5-kilometer skate-style races on Jan. 6 hosted by Woodstock.
The girls’ squad — highlighted by freshman Malia Hodges’ first-place finish and five skiers in the top 13 — dominated Brattleboro, Woodstock, Mount Anthony, St. Johnsbury and Rutland.
The boys’ team, paced by junior Cade Christner in third, senior Harlow Punderson in fourth and four skiers in the top 10, defeated the same field. The Tiger boys are the defending Division II champions.
“It was a very strong showing for the team all around,” said Coach Will Henriques.
Last Friday’s successful results followed a win by the Tiger boys at a Dec. 21 meet in Stowe, at which the Tiger girls took third with some strong individual efforts, according to Henriques.
