Cook County/Silver Bay Alpine team hosts KooKoo Invite

The Cook County/Silver Bay Alpine ski team hosted the KooKoo Invite at Lutsen Mountains on Thursday, January 10. It was a challenging day of racing for the North Shore team.

Coach Charles Lamb said the top finisher for the girls’ team was Elsa Lunde, who earned a personal best and a standing in the top 10. She put together two solid runs to finish in 9th place.

The varsity boys’ team earned 2nd overall with Will Surbaugh claiming 2nd place and Cy Oberholtzer taking 6th.

The JV boys did extremely well, with Weston Heeren taking 1st  and Andrew Hallberg taking 3rd.

Coach Lamb said it was a poignant meet, the last for the Cook County seniors—Elsa Lunde, Reilly Wahlers, and Sela Backstrom.

The Vikings now have a bye week and then head to the CEC Invite at Mont du Lac Ski Hill on Thursday, January 24.
