Boys Nordic Skiing: Warriors sixth at state meet


BIWABIK — Riley Nelsen was so close and Zean Baker was enjoying the view, too.

The two Brainerd Warriors flirted with all-state honors Thursday during the state Nordic ski meet at Giants Ridge Resort.

In the end, Nelsen finished 29th and Baker 63rd to help the Warriors team to a sixth-place finish.

Nelsen was 34th after the morning skate, or freestyle, race. He then attacked the classic course in 16:05.7 for a pursuit time of 31:35.7.
