HOUGHTON, Mich.-They're winning championships. I'm talking about the Nanook ski teams. The women won the NCAA Central Region Championship and the men came in second place.
The women's team was led by sensational sophomore Alyison McPhetres who won the 5k and 10k races to get the individual region crown. The Nanooks also took three of the top 6 spots in the 10k beating Northern Michigan by four 71-67 to claim the title.
The men's team fell to Northern Michigan by just one point after taking four spots in the top 10.
Tomorrow the NCAA will announce qualifiers for the NCAA Championships on March sixth in Middlebury Vermont.
