Saturday 2/12 & Monday 2/14 were two very exciting days for Section V  skiers. The distance race on saturday was skied in winter wonder land conditions at Harriet. Alyssa Likly of Pittsford Nordic and Kevin Hoose of HF earned their champ status as the winners of the classic 7.5K & 10K (repectfully) distance races.

On Monday skiers raced the 3K relay loop at the Bristol Nordic Center -once more to great excitement. The boys teams had close nerve wracking racing - HFL boys came out on top with a very close second from Pittsford Mendon.

  • HFL boys and girls are Section V Champs for 2011.
  • 24 skiers from HF, Pittsford Nordic, Webster & Irondequoit earned places on the team that will travell to race in the NYSPHSAA Nordic Championships being held in Lake Placid Marh 1&2

However none of these events would be possible with out the hard work and dedication of many parents and others who commit to helping make our nordic season so incredible.

Special thanks are due to:

Rob Howell, Bob Bauer  - chief race course managers - thank you guys for ALL that you do tirelessly!
Eric Metzler - chief timer, scorer extra-ordinaire- Eric works his magic to ensure we take home results!
All the race official elves who help out - Mr & Mrs Newman, the Pavias, the Hanrahans, and many, many others whose names are not mentioned but without whom the quality of races would not be possible
Fred the groomer - who worked tirelessly to ensure a perfect course at HH
Rochester Cross Country Ski Foundation who fund the grooming at HH
Ski Patrol who work closely with us to provide emergency coverage at major events
Stony Brook Park management - who enable us to use HH
Hill and Valley Riders - the local snowmobile club - that works cooperatively with Nordic to make the multi use at HH safe for all.

Finally ALL the parents that helped put on the amazing spread of food at the end of racing on saturday as well as Monday and even at the final County Champs race 2/16 - THANK YOU - we cannot do it without you!

2011Pittsford Sprint Champions Crowned!

January 30, 2011 : Posted in

The PIttsford Sprints took place saturday 1/29/11 at Mount Pittsford on a perfectly prepared race course with weather conditions that were ideal for racing and spectating. The sun peaked throug occaisionally and snow flakes fell on and off most of the monring adding to the festive winter event.

The racing was exciting as skiers vied for the coveted top 3 positions so that they could move onto the next bracket event. At the end of the sprint series of elimination rounds Alyssa LIkly from Pittsford Nordic claimed the Sprint Championship for the girls, and Kevin Hoose from HFL Nordic claimed the Sprint Championship for the boys. Alyssa and Kevin demonstrated spectacular skiing and endurance as they raced the 1K sprint course 4 times in all to achieve their wins.

Alyssa and Kevin received  plaques that are donated and awarded by the Metzler family of Pittsford in honor of their son Carl. Carl  was a Pittsford Nordic skier who died unexpectedly shortly after graduating from college. The Carl Lane Metzler Sprint Award has become part of Pittsford Nordic's tradition as an annual event, providing the snow conditions hold up.

Congratulations to you both Alyssa and Kevin - you do our teams proud!
