HRV Nordic hosts 5K Classic

The Hood River Valley Nordic team competed on home turf over the weekend in a 5K Classic race at Teacup Nordic Center. With snow flurries and varying surface conditions as an added challenge to the area’s hilly terrain, HRV racers had a strong showing. Delia Dolan led the way for the girls with a fifth-place finish to help the team to a second-place finish out of eight.

The HRV boys squad was down its top three skiers, as they were competing at the same time at the Junior Olympic Qualifiers in Bend (see Saturday’s paper for details). Leading the way at Teacup was Mason McDowell, placing 14th out of a field of 41.

The 5K race was complicated by snow flurries much of the day, which made choosing the right wax — which is a crucial part of the sport — a game-changer for many competitors. Teacup’s hilly terrain also made a difference and was an advantage for the local skiers as they are accustomed to training on the same hills.

The team races next at a night race Feb. 1 at Mt. Hood Meadows.

HRV girls top five:

Delia Dolan, 5th

Denali Emmons, 12th

Althea Dillon, 13th

Lauren Robinson, 22nd

Victoria K.-Flanagan, 32nd

HRV boys top three:

Mason McDowell, 14th

Billy Edwards, 26th

Alex Chadney, 37th
