Steamboat’s Cotton wins Nordic race at Carbondale

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Steamboat Springs High School Nordic ski team started the season with a classic race in Carbondale, and junior Sumner Cotton took the win in the boys 5-kilometer race.

Cotton won with a time of 17 minutes, 47.2 seconds — 11 seconds faster than the second-place skier from Aspen.

Steamboat’s Wyatt Mortenson finished fifth with a time of 18:20.6.

Chase Weynand, Mitch Meissner and Caleb Haack all finished in the top 30. Anyone who finished 67th or higher would qualify for state, so long as they compete in another classic race this season. Eleven Sailors made the cut.

Senior Maggi Congdon was the top finisher for the Sailor girls, taking 23rd with a time of 25:09.7. Jade Henderson and Catcher Weynand earned 31st and 32nd, respectively.

Ten Steamboat girls finished in the top 40%, meaning they would qualify for state if they complete another classic race this winter.
