Athletics Updates – Wrestling and Skiing

The wrestling team had an outstanding day in Thunder Bay Wednesday, finishing the tournament a very close 2nd place. Great work everyone!

The DHS Nordic Ski Team competed in the season opener race yesterday with a strong team presence. Racing on a 6km track in Kenora, DHS brought back 5 medals. In the Sr. Boys category, Kjell Schmidt won gold in a time of just over 17 minutes. Garrett Lindquist took bronze, just 6 seconds back. In the Sr. Girls category, Candace Glowa took Silver, and in the Jr. Boys category, the gold went to Eric Schmidt and the silver to Nevin Mallyon. All skiers put in a strong performance and are to be congratulated for their early season training. The Ski Team is looking forward to hosting the NorWossa races on January 12th at the Dryden Ski Club. For anyone interested in trying out skate skiing, come to room 137 tomorrow afternoon to put on some skis and try a few loops around the track!
