Skiers fare well at OFSAA

Staff

It was a fantastic end to the season for members of the Muskie Nordic skiing team at the OFSAA championships held in Hunstville on Wednesday and Thursday.

The four-member contingent that Fort High sent to the all-Ontarios all competed hard and came away with some great finishes.

Emma Toriseva had the top showing for the Muskies, cracking the top 10 in placing ninth out of 131 competitors in the junior girls’ 3.7-K race with a time of 20:17.8.

That effort put her less than six seconds from an eighth-place ribbon and only 45 seconds from snaring a bronze-medal finish.

In the senior girls’ 4.5-K division, meanwhile, the Muskies had three representatives.

Kayli Machura had the top showing for the black-and-gold in winding up 24th out of 114 skiers with a time of 25:00.6

Tori Toriseva was just behind (25:08) while Angie Redford placed 38th (26:45.4) to round out the finishes for Fort High at the all-Ontarios.
