As the season comes to close, Seth Eliason, senior, captain, looks to cherish his final moments on the Royals nordic team.
“I’m really gonna miss the happiness of the team. I’m gonna miss these guys. We are close knit like a family,” Eliason said. “Probably more than any other sport in the high school.”
Eliason started skiing at a young age. Eliason used his cross country skills to his advantage when he initially got into the sport.
“I started Nordic in eighth grade. I started doing it because of my interest in cross country and many of my friends were doing it.”
Eliason has had a successful season so far this Winter. Although Eliason had a tough end to the season, he is still looking at the bright side.
“The season has gone pretty well. Sections were last Wednesday and sadly I came down with the flu, so I couldn’t compete,” Eliason said. “Looking at the results and based off of how I have done this season, I would have most likely made it to state.”
The boys team has a bright future ahead of them with guys like Logan Hoffman, junior and Isaac Eng, junior at the helm.
The team has had plenty of surprises this season.
“The team has had many pleasant surprises this season. It surprised me how well Logan [Hoffman] is skiing. Logan making it to state was huge,” Eliason said. “The team also has many young skiers with bright futures that will surprise you.”
Eliason also has had success in cross country running.
“I actually went to nationals for cross country,” Eliason said.
Eliason will continue his education and cross country running at Georgetown University.
