RUMFORD, Maine (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - A trio of Green Bay Nordic skiers began competition at the 2011 U.S. Cross Country Championships on Sunday, as senior Carolyn Freeman (Ely, Minn.), sophomore Eddie Gurney (Brookfield, Wis.) and freshman Kailey Mucha (Soldotna, Alaska) each participated in races at Black Mountain.
