Jackson Adler of Ashwaubenon, has been skiing well and aggressively this season. He went to Anchorage for nationals and that's always a toughening effect for the rest of the season. I think Jackson will be there on the podium. This kid's tough and when push comes to shove, barring bugs, or nuclear war with North Korea, he going to give his all. He nipped Eli Gore Madnorski at a fairly well-attended meet in Iola, and Conner Nielsen Peak was just a bit back, so there are good lads around him, but he usually comes out on top.
Keep an eye on him. Eli and Conner may be contenders, but next on my list is a brawny, lanky kid from Chippewa Valley, David Ecker. He was 13th last year, but appears to have done his homework over the summer as he is always in the hunt. With good skis and a good day he could be a major player. Lakeland's Kieran Mullen was second last year and appears to be skiing into good form at this writing. He's beaten most of the aforementioned names during the year Sickness and slick skis are hard handicaps for anyone to overcome in this sport, but with the stars aligning properly, immune deficiency being held at bay, a proper set of skis under him, and then, Mullen's my bet for champion this year.
He has a good group around him and the look of a senior. The top three teams need three strong skiers having a couple of good days. Much, much easier said than done.
Based on a review of results, both state races, the Junior Cup Points List, an analytical review of the results of the first two JC race weekends, and gut instinct, here's the leading three.
In third, and this may be off a notch or two, I expect Ashwaubenon will be there. They have a whole fleet of strong boys to support Jackson. The Rhinelander Challenge results had Kyle Thieme in 10th after two days. Little brother Ryan took 13th and just behind in 15th, another sophomore, Daniel Huhtala. Plenty strong enough among the teams there to take 4th, without Jackson. However, there are underdogs, double dog dares, spoilers, and well coached teams taking pride in results; for example, Chippewa Valley.
With David Ecker and sophomore Garrett Walters they have a strong two and if Luke Rosenburger can stick with his friends. They slip into third. At the Iola Freestyle Challenge they were 4 and 9 points behind Ashwaubenon respectively. So, you can see the door opening to the possibility of Wausau having a team up on the platform, both with established programs and lots of experience.
Second place to me is a no-brainer, and I've been called worse. This team last year at state was in seventh place, a long way from uptown. Consistently this season I find them at or near the top of the team points; Hodag Challenge, case in point, second to Lakeland by nine points.
For the overall team title; Lakeland. Sure, call me a "homer. Mullen's point total is 1. He does both techniques equally well, can sprint, and has seen how it's done by a few other Lakeland kids through the years. OK, unless disaster strikes, or voodoo really works, one is a great number to start your low score team total with. Mullen is supported by Kav FitzPatrick and as the D2 cross country champion, he's looking for hills to expand those lungs on and burn the competition.
Also he comes from a strong skiing bloodline and family endurance culture.
Lakeland's third, Cody Schneider has been closing the gap all season and knows how to push himself. Submit a comment Please fill out the form below to submit a comment.
