Both Relays Third at CCSA Championships

Both Relays Third at CCSA Championships

Complete Results

MARQUETTE, Mich. - Both of Michigan Tech's men's and women's teams finished third in the classic relays at the Central Collegiate Ski Association Championships Sunday (Feb. 3).

After strong performances by the team's first two skiers Sondre Sandvik and Matt Wong, anchor Luke Gesior started his leg of the 3x10-kilometer relay with a 20 second deficit. Gesior skied the fastest split of the day, 21:43, but could not beat the Saints in a photo finish, finishing 0.2 seconds behind. The team finished in a time of 1:08:43.

"It would have been awesome to see Luke come all the way back and win, but that is how the ball bounces," said head coach Joe Haggenmiller.

Tech's second men's team of Matt Dugan, Thomas Kendrick and Jay Woodbeck finished fourth in a time 1:10:45 edging out Alaska by 0.2 seconds.

The men's third team of Kyle Hanson, David Joda and Sam Holmes finished eighth in 1:12:23.

Tech's top women's team of Deedra Irwin, Sarah Daniels and Rachel Mason finished third in a time of 40:38 over the 3x5-kilometer course.

The Huskies second team of Lynn Duijndam and redshirts Alice Flanders and Ruth Oppliger finished 10th in 44:09.

"We had strong performances from many of our skiers, not just from those on our number one team's," said Haggenmiller.

Tech is second in the team standings 14 points ahead of St. Scholastica and Alaska who are tied for third.

Haggenmiller said he is excited to have Winter Carnival weekend off before competing in the final weekend of the CCSA Championships Feb. 16-17 in Coleraine, Minn.
