Nordic skiing

Homer’s cross-country ski team traveled to compete in the Seward Ski Invitational this past weekend.

The meet consisted of teams from Homer, Kenai, Seward and Soldotna at the Mile 12 Ski Trails. Kenai and Soldotna skied on Friday while Homer and Seward skied Saturday. All teams skied separately, with team members collecting points by skiing as many loops of the provided trails as possible. The three different loops were worth five, three and one point, respectively.

A Soldotna team of Carter Cannava, Levi Mickelson and Avery Ciufo took first place with 80 points, just sneaking the win away from a Kenai team that had 79 points.

Homer’s top team of Eryn Field, Frida Renner and Elena Badajos took third place with 75 points, while the top Seward team took fourth with 73.

For the girls individual scores, Kenai’s Jayna Boonstra took first place with 29 personal points. For the boys, Soldotna’s Quinn Cox took first place for personal points with 34.
