Thursday, February 7, 2013    Marshall School senior Joe Fairbanks qualified for his third MSHSL State Tournament with a strong top ten finish in today’s Section Seven Nordic Ski Meet, held at Giants Ridge Nordic Ski Center.   In the first race of the day a 5 kilometer skate race on the Silver Trail, Fairbanks placed 10th.  Later that afternoon Joe moved up one spot to capture ninth place overall in the classical pursuit race held on the Cedar and Gold section course.  His finish placed him in the group of eight individual state meet qualifiers not on the winning team.  Fairbank’s teammate Senior Cody Johnson finished the day 13th in skate and 17th overall.  Johnson was satisfied with his performance in the grueling races having just recovered from a long lingering cold.

In team results the Ely boys captured first place in a hard fought battle with the Duluth East Greyhounds.  The Marshall boys team finished the day in 6th place out of the 11 teams competing in a very tough section.

The MSHSL State Tournament will be held on Thursday, Feb 14, 2013 at Giants Ridge.  Racing begins at 10:00am and will be broadcast live by WELY out of Ely, Minnesota
