SSC Sprints 


Great racing today by everyone.  The Eagan Boys Team skied to 1st, 2nd, 8th, 10th, 11th & 16th place finishes in the individual sprints and took 5 of the top 7 places in the team sprint including 1st (Ryan Conroy & Pat Acton) & 2nd (Dylan Schuller & Ryan Steger).  The Eastview Girls finished 5th 8th 12th, 17th, & 18th in the individual sprints, and tied Lakeville South for 1st in the Team Sprint competition with the Eastview A team of Gabbie Kraemer and Ana Brakke winning the race.  We also had great races from Tess Grunklee and Maddie Matsoff who finished in 14th and 15th place.






Because we raced last Thursday & this Saturday and are scheduled for another race on Tuesday, the SSC coaches have decided to change up the schedule a bit for next week.  If the weather allows the plan is the postpone last regular season classic race to the week after next and do a short mixed-gender team time trial.  At this point the hope is that we can hold it at Valleywood but that is a bit dependent on the weather as NOAA suggests snow and possible freezing rain on Monday evening.  We do have a backup location at Hyland so we will be racing, it's just a matter of where the meet will take place.

Shutterfly Site Updated

For all you photographers out there, the Shutterfly site is now open for this years pictures.  You can upload pictures you have taken of team members to share with others who don't have the equipment or skill to take quality photos.  Follow the link under "Links" download your pictures under "Pictures and Videos".  If those of you with quality cameras can help, we need two photos of each skier by Feb. 17th.  Also before Feb. 17th, each parent or skier will need to go into the Shutterfly site and pick two photos of your skier, label them and put them in the Banquet tab.



Fan and Skier Headwear Available

Sample pictured in Handouts

To make it easy to identify other ISD 196 fans and parents, you can pick up a fan/parent hat or skiers can pick up a headband to use instead of the team hat.  You can get either from Marc or Maddie Matsoff at practices or races.
