PPH High school skiing preview: They’re friends, on and off the snow
Sophia Laukli of Yarmouth and Olivia Skillings of Maine Coast Waldorf share a special bond on snow and off

...The girls, seated at a table in the Pineland Farms market before a recent workout, laughed often as they remembered their days in middle school. They are seniors now, both 17, Laukli at Yarmouth High and Skillings, who lives in North Yarmouth, still at the small Freeport school now called Maine Coast Waldorf.

They’re also fiercely competitive Nordic skiers, two of the best in the state.

“They’re very, very close friends,” said Bob Morse, in his 36th year as Nordic coach at Yarmouth. “But put them on the starting line and there’s no mercy. Once they say go, they’re out to beat each other. And then they hug at the finish line.”

They are training partners in nonwinter seasons, roller skiing, mountain biking and road biking. Both ran cross country this fall. ... -the-snow/
