Nordic skiing season takes off at Chenard Memorial

...“It feels really great to get on snow. We’re really focusing on training today,” Maranacook Community High School senior Laura Parent said. “It’s just a good first day for everybody, to get on skis and just go for it.”

For Parent and her Black Bear teammates, Saturday’s race was an early step in defense of their Class B state championship. The same went for the Mt. Blue girls, who are coming off a state title in Class A. Considering both teams have only been training on snow for a few days, it was a small step.

“We had only been on snow a couple days, on the flats. This is the first time any of them had gone uphill this year. You try to make the focus not on going fast today, to be honest with you,” Maranacook coach Steve DeAngelis said. “It’s about building both endurance and building skills back again. Nobody feels totally coordinated right now. Kids who were really smooth at the end of last year, not so smooth right now, and that’s OK. We’ll work on that, building technique.”
