Lein 12th, Soerensen 31st, at conference ski meet
Blue Earth Area High School skier Nick Lein – who competes with the Lake Crystal Valley ski team – took 12th place in the River Bluff Conference Ski Meet on Friday, Feb. 3.
Lein completed his first run with a time of 20.88 and his second run with a time of 22.67 for a combined total of 43.55.
That was good enough to put him in the 12th spot out of over 70 skiers.
Lein had been seeded second on the Lake Crystal Valley team, but took first place with his time.
The boys team only had three skiers competing in the meet held at Mt. Kato Ski Hill, so they wound up in eighth place out of nine teams.
BEAHS student Laura Soerensen came in 31st out of 72 girl skiers in the conference meet.
Soerensen had a time of 28.54 on her first run and 23.56 on her second, for a total time of 52.10.
The LCV girls team ended in fourth place out of the eight teams competing.
