Castleton Nordic Skiing has been ripping through the snow all season as the men’s team is undefeated and the women’s team has finished top three in all their races.
For the men, sophomore John Henry Paluszek and freshman Andrew Doherty have been leading the team. Paluszek has taken first place in all but two races this year. Doherty took the top spot in the other two.
“Both Andrew Doherty and I have been training since we were in middle school, and we’ve done a lot of summer work and fall work,” said Paluszek. Both Paluszek and Doherty took a gap year last year.
Juniors David Harvey and Devin Perry have been rounding out the team scoring.
“Having a bunch of strong guys, we can work together which is awesome,” said Doherty. “We can push ourselves to new limits and that’s how we do so well.”
As for the women, sisters Megan and Emily Greene have been killing it. Megan finished second place last Saturday in the division championships. Emily finished sixth.
This past weekend, the Men’s team took first place in the division championships and the women’s team took second place.
The Nordic teams will head to Moutain Top this weekend in Chittenden to compete in the regional championships. The men are hoping to become the first team in school history to go undefeated.
