A strong field showed up at North Tahoe High School yesterday for the fifth running of the Tahoe Rim Tour, a fund raiser for the Far West Nordic Ski Education Association’s Junior Ski Programs started by SBA's own Head Nordic Coach Jeff "El Jefe" Schloss.
This year's event raised some $2,000 and featured prizes donated by Sierra Nordic of Truckee, among others.
Schloss himself finished first in his age group and eighth overall in the Classic division. Congratulations, Jefe! Assistant Coach Ambrose Tuscano took eleventh overall in the Classic wave, with Peter Carroll close on his heels in fifteenth. Mother and daughter duo Laurel and Nancy Fiddler crossed the finish line together sporting matching head bands and uniforms in first place for each of their respective age divisions. Also in the Classic division, Kelly Habibi took third and Joe Piercy sixth for their age divisions.
In the Junior Skate division, SBA's Skyler Mullings and faculty child Casey Jobe finished first and second, respectively.
Said Jefe: "huge THANK YOUS go to SBA volunteers Camille Hartley, Joelle Romo, Katrin larusson, Bria Riggs, Roxanne Romo, MaryBeth Larusson, Sonja Harris, Paige Derdowski, and Kelley Carroll.”
Enjoy the movie!
