— One of the more than 100 skiers who took part in the boys race of Saturday’s high school Nordic skiing event at Howelsen Hill in Steamboat Springs paused near the top of one of several challenging hills and looked to the fans who lined the course.

“You’ve got to be kidding me,” he said, looking ahead at an even larger slope to come.

The course was challenging, but more than 150 high school skiers tore up and down it. The Steamboat Springs High School girls Nordic skiing team led the way for the Sailors with a third-place finish. The boys were seventh.



“I’m pleased with how we skied,” Steamboat coach Emily Lovett said. “We had a couple girls in the top 10, and any time you can do that against this group, that’s pretty good.”

Linnea Dix­son led the way for a strong showing by Steamboat’s girls. She was eighth on her home course, finishing the 5-kilometer skate race in 16 minutes, 41.1 seconds.



“It was really difficult, but kind of fun at the same time,” Dixson said. “It’s really fun to race here. It’s fun to see everyone’s reaction when they come here. They’re like, ‘Oh my,’ but we train this every day.”

Cassady Daley filed in right behind Dixson, finishing ninth in 16:45.9. Dominique Powers was 14th in 17:25.2, while Martha Anderson was 18th in 18:22.4, edging teammate Sara White, 19th at 18:22.6, at the finish line.

Eva Lambeck finished 21st and Mallory Hoots 26th to join those in the top 20 in qualifying for the state championship race. Pichya Nimit, meanwhile, finished 46th in the 64-racer field.

“It was hard,” Lambeck said. “It was really fun. The downhill parts were a lot of fun.”

Vail Mountain dominated the girls race thanks to placing four finishers in the top six, finishing with 171 points. Julia Hayes, of Summit High School, won the race, finishing in 15:18.5, ahead of second-place Samantha Ber­­ggren, of Middle Park, in at 15:37.7, and Amelia Ortiz, of Vail, who finished in 15:37.8.

Aspen was second with 157 points. Steamboat had 156.

Keegan Swirbul, of Aspen, won the boys race, helping his team to an overall first-place finish with 167 points. Summit was second with 165, and Battle Mountain was third at 141.

Steamboat, paced by Jack Burger in 16th place, was seventh with 132, just behind Eagle Valley in sixth and Lake County in fifth.

Burger finished the course in 15 minutes, 43.2 seconds. Steamboat’s Wilber Ranieri was 22nd in 16:41.1, Dane Dixson 29th in 17:36.1 and Peter White 39th in 18:18.7. All qualified for state.

“Jack had a really solid race,” Lovett said. “Wilber is still recovering and isn’t in top form yet, and Dane, he skied a really solid race. Dane and Peter, they weren’t super high, but they’re new to racing and Nordic, and every time they get out there they’re getting stronger.”

Girls middle school squad wins Nordic skiing event

Steamboat fielded two squads in a Nordic skiing middle school race Saturday in Steamboat Springs. Those two teams finished first and second on the girls side, and second and third on the boys side.

The Steamboat girls Nordic combined team — filled with racers from the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club’s Nordic combined ranks — won with 166 points. The other Steamboat middle school team was second with 164 points.

Natalie Bohlmann was third overall in the 2.5-kilometer skate race with a time of 8:25.2.

Samantha Terranova was fourth, Kathleen O’Connell fifth, Katie Brodie was seventh, Abbey Habermehl was eighth, and Nikki Katthain was ninth.

The boys Nordic combined team was second with 161 points, behind Summit. The other Steamboat team was third with 157.

Finn O’Connell was second in 11:56.0, Evan Barbier fourth, Koby Vargas fifth and Tyler Terranova eighth.
