Wraps: Nordic improves in standings

The Newtonite

by Jay Feinstein
Nordic skiing had a successful season, according to Tom Clemow, who coached the team for the first time this season.
The girls placed fifth in the State, and the boys placed 10th in the State, both improving the team’s State standings this year.
According to Clemow, an exciting part of the season was the girls’ competition with Dover-Sherborn, the perennial Mass. Bay East League winner.
“Our girls skied with determination, but we finished second,” he said.
The team lacked snow for a major part of the season, but according to senior Abby Dalzell, a captain with seniors Tiphaine Kugener and Isabel Meigs, “we kept going.”
Junior Julia Schiantarelli was named a Boston Globe all-scholastic and a Bay State Conference all-star.
Next year’s captains will be juniors Yarden Gavish, Rosanna Gessel-Larson, Nick Roberts and Julia Schiantarelli.
