Local athletes prepare for National Nordic Skiing Championships
By Russ Owens
(WAOW)- We have another group of local Olympians who head to Maine this week for the Junior Olympics.
Wausau West's Ashlee Marshall and Matt Nichols as well as Adam Martin from Wausau East will all compete in the National Nordic Skiing Championships.
The three competed in the STATE championships last month and now get to show their skills on the national stage.
Says Matt Nichols, "It's going to be really nice going to Maine and skiing for a week, it will be a great experience being my first time, the competition is really strong so we'll see how it goes."
Says Ashlee Marshall, "Yeah I'm really excited to be going out to Maine, it was one of my other goals this year to make the team again and it will be a good experience racing against more people from all across the United States."
Says Adam Martin, "It's just really sweet, that's been my dream for a long time to qualify for nationals, so going to nationals and doing this in one year is just amazing."
