The cross-country ski team competed at the state competition in Fairbanks at Birch Hill. The girls placed sixth and the boys placed 11th overall. The staff congratulates Elisabeth Habermann for finishing third overall at the meet. Her third-place finish is the highest achieved by a Skyview ski team member since the school opened. Elisabeth earned a position on the Junior Olympic team, where she will compete at Lake Placid, New York.
