The Lodi High School Nordic ski season opened on Saturday December 18th
with the Lodi Invitational Race at the Lakeland Hills Golf Course trails.
109 skiers from 5 schools competed in this exciting event. The high school
race featured the popular Olympic style team pursuit in which 2-person teams
ski a 5 kilometer skating relay. Waukesha/Peak Nordic won both the girls and
boys events with Madison taking second and Lodi third. Plymouth/Sheboygan
and Stevens Point/Central Nordic rounded out the team results finishing 4 th
and 5 th .

Lodi boys were led by Elliot Statz and Sam Taylor who finished fourth, just
missing the podium by 10 seconds. “Elliot and Sam may have had the best
results for any Lodi boys over the history of the program. I am looking
forward to their continued success this year”, comments coach Dale Fanney.
The girl’s team was led by Sydney Endres who finished 8 th overall, followed
by Paige Nichols (11 th ) and Tara Lang (15 th ). Coach Fanney states
again,” Sydney Endres hard work during practice has paid off again.”

The Middle school races were dominated by Peak Nordic. Peter Gundach led the
way for Lodi boys finishing in 8 th place, & Leslie Erickson was the first
Lodi girl placing 9 th . Many of the Lodi Middle School skiers were doing
their first race.

The ski teams will break for winter vacation and race again in Iola on
January 8 th .
