Cooper, Fox win again

Of the two high school ski races that were scheduled, only Friday’s event was able to be run, thanks to warmer-than-normal temperatures that plagued the Tsalteshi Trails this weekend.


In Friday’s skate race, Kenai Central’s Travis Cooper managed to separate himself from a tight field of varsity boys skiers to win in 12 minutes flat, beating Soldotna’s Colton Diehl by 12 seconds and Kenai’s Jordan Theisen by 14 seconds.

In the girls varsity race, Sadie Fox of Soldotna cruised to another win with a time of 13:21, which was 14 seconds better than runner-up Mika Morton of Skyview.

Prep skiers will face a much larger and tougher field of competition next weekend in Anchorage for the Dimond Lynx Loppet at Kincaid Park, weather permitting. The next home race will be the SoHi Candy Cane on Dec. 19.
