Cobblestone Relays won by Losers

The Cobblestone Relays, held Feb. 7, was won by the Losers.

That sardonic team title dripped irony as the angst-ridden youths who comprised the Losers bested the field and took first place.

The victorious trio was made up of Losers Nick Sterling, Tav Streit and Ian Case.

Achieving that seemingly impossible task of losing to the Losers and coming in second was the team of Tony Bozzio, his coach Lars Spurkland and Saturday’s victor at State Championships Scott Hill.

In third place was a team of University of Nevada, Reno, students including that speedy Czech, Katurina Hanusova, perhaps the fastest woman on two narrow, edgeless skis in North America.

All agreed it was a beautiful evening for the event, but due to the limited snowpack organizers were forced to avoid its customary route through the Cobblestone Mall.

For the little ‘uns, Alex Taylor was master of the 10 to 11-year olds.

Taylor’s little sister represented the family genome and dominated the under seven field, while Chris Cahill represented a clan all his own and took first for the eight to nine-year olds.

All proceeds from the race went to benefit Tahoe City Cross Country Ski Area.
