Some of Rossland’s young cross-country skiers had great results at the Midget Championships on March 2 and 3.

The championships, held in Revelstoke, are for youth between the ages of 9-12, and this year 181 kids spent an fun-filled weekend of racing at the Mt. Macpherson XC Ski Trails.

The West Kootenay skiers who finished in the top spots were  Remi Drolet of Rossland, who took second, and Kolibri Drobish, sixth, in their individual Classic races on Saturday.

Sunday, Remi Drolet again placed second in the skating sprint competition for his age group. Skiers were recognized not only for their speed, but also their technique.

Oliver McDougall-Eisele, Nelson Nordic, won the Best Skate Technique award on Sunday during his sprints races.
