Leavitt High School's Logan Ouellette was the fastest Class B skier on the John Roderick Trail System in the MPA Nordic Classical Championship. The 5k race at Black Mountain of Maine on the balmy day saw Ouelette complete the challenging course in 18:08.1 to take the Gold Medal. The Silver Medalist was Sam Robinson of the Freeport Falcons, who was right behind Ouelette, finishing in 18:10.7. The Bronze Medal was captured by Yarmouth High School's Askel Yeo with a time of 18:37.6.
In 4th place, with a time of 18:54.8 was Cornelius Welsh of Yarmouth. Michael Sweeney was the first Patriot of Gray-New Gloucester HS to cross the line, taking 5th place with a time of 18:58.5. Robinson's teammate T Steverlynck-Horne took 6th, finishing in 19:02.2.
That sets up an exciting race for tomorrow, as Ouellette will be the first out in the 5k Freestyle Pursuit, with Robinson starting just 2.6 seconds behind him. Expect faster conditions with the anticipated colder temperatures. Scheduled start is 12:00 noon.
