ISHPEMING, Mich. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay men's and women's Nordic skiing teams competed at the Central Collegiate Ski Association (CCSA) Championships over the weekend, hosted by Northern Michigan University at the Al Quaal Recreation Area. The Phoenix squads participated in the freestyle sprint races on Saturday and the classic relays on Sunday.

Highlighting the conference meet for Green Bay was sophomore Kailey Mucha's (Soldotna, Alaska) performance in Saturday's sprint finals. Mucha raced to a second-place finish with a time of 4:19.70, just four seconds back from the winning time of 4:15.30 by Alaska Fairbanks' Marit Rjabov. Sophomore Hanne Guthrie (Chanhassen, Minn.) also advanced to the freestyle sprint finals, placing 18th in 4:27.80.

Sophomore Matt Nichols (Wausau, Wis.) was the top finisher for the Phoenix men on Saturday, finishing 13th in the sprint. Nichols completed the 1.6-kilometer course in 3:39.10.

In the classic relay races on Sunday, the Green Bay men and women each had two teams of three skiers in the field. The top Phoenix women's squad, consisting of Mucha, Guthrie and Katie Burger (Hayward, Wis.), finished ninth out of 14 teams in the 3x5K race with a time of 43:19.7. For the men, Matt Nichols, Chris Nichols (Wausau, Wis.) and Eddie Gurney (Brookfield, Wis.) placed 10th out of 15 squads in the 3x10K event in 1:13:13.8.

The Green Bay Nordic skiing teams are next in action on Feb. 16-17 at the Gustavus Adolphus Invitational in Coleraine, Minn.
