A pair of Outlaw girls competed in the XC Oregon skate ski race at Mount Bachelor on Saturday, January 28.
The 4.7-kilometer freestyle race attracted teams from all three of the Oregon Interscholastic Ski Racing Association–Nordic (OISRAN) divisions, Northern, Southern. and Mt. Hood. Ten teams in all took part in the race.
Ella Bartlett placed 28th (18:26) and Nevaeh McAfee 58th (21:42) among 85 racers.
Piper Widmer of Bend High, one of the top age-group skiers in Oregon, won the race in 14:04.
The Outlaw Nordic team was missing many of its members who also compete for the Alpine ski team, which also had a meet on January 28.
“I am proud of Neveah and Ella,” said Jeff Husmann, head coach. “Such huge improvements this season, so committed, and most importantly having fun.”
The team returns to action on Saturday, February 11 at the Meadows Skiathlon Relay at Mt. Hood Meadows.
