A large number of high school and middle school skiers with the Hayward Nordic Ski Team competed in the 38th annual state distance championships sponsored by the Wisconsin Nordic Ski League Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 8-9, at the American Birkebeiner start area trails near Cable.

More than 400 athletes from 23 teams competed in the event, which featured a 6.5-kilometer (four-mile) classic race for high school skiers and 3.5-kilometer classic race for middle school skiers on Saturday, and freestyle races over the same distances on Sunday — with start times determined by individuals’ placings the day before in a pursuit format.
