Game Review

The Lakehead Nordic Ski teams competed in the OUA Nordic Ski Championships this weekend in Midland, Ont. The Thunderwolves claimed silver on both the men’s and women’s side.

Lakehead skiers Jen Jackson and Gavin Shields were at the top of the podium after Day 1 of the championships, both winning gold in their events.

IMG_4655The Thunderwolves also walked away with gold on both the men’s and women’s side in the 3 x 3 km Free Relay.

Gavin Shields swept gold in the 10k free and relay disciplines, along side Jennifer Jackson who was perfect in the individual and relay in the women’s races.

The women’s team had solidified their silver medal going into the final races, however the mens side was very close with only 1 point separating Carleton and Lakehead. Despite Shields big wins, Carleton had some important finished further down the line that pushed them on top of the podium.  Carletons Kirkham edged out Lakehead’s Noah Thompson for third, Pomeroy finished one spot ahead of Lakehead’s Geoffrey Way-Nee for 6th, and Howard captured an 8th place finish over a pair of Thunderwolves. Those three results, coupled with Ravens finishing 11th through 13th, was enough to put the Ravens on top and snatch the championship away from the Thunderwolves.

Noah Thompson, Gavin Shields and Noah Taylor all were named OUA men’s Nordic Skiing All-stars as well as Jen Jackson, Makaila Hudson and Erika Mihell on the women’s side.
