It was a great start to the season for the Muskie Nordic skiing team on Friday here.
Members of the black-and-gold put in some solid performances at the Muskie Invitational, which was the NorWOSSA season-opener, and was held at the Rainy Lake Nordic Ski Club trails on Rocky Inlet.
Tori Toriseva had the top showing for the Muskies, snaring a second-place finish in the senior girls' 5.6-K race with a time of 26:48.
She was followed by Emma Toriseva in third (27:54), Kayli Machura in fourth (28:46), Angie Redford in fifth (30:46), while Jaida Norris wound up seventh (34:40).
Ray Calder was the lone Muskie to compete in the senior boys' 7.8-K race, placing seventh with a time of 42:10 to round out the finishes for Fort High.
The Muskies next will be in action at the NorWOSSA championships slated for this Thursday (Jan. 16) in Kenora.
NWOSSAA will follow on Feb. 6th in Atikokan with OFSAA set for Feb. 19-21 in Huntsville.
