MARQUETTE, Mich. — The Northern Michigan University nordic ski team is set to host the NCAA Central Regional Championships this weekend at the Al Quaal Recreation Area in Ishpeming, Michigan this Saturday and Sunday (February 22-23).
The Northwoods Nordic Ski Club and its sponsors host an NCAA qualifier for the Central Collegiate Ski Association (CCSA) at CAVOC in Rhinelander, Wisconsin.
The Central region historically has been dominated by the Michigan schools (Northern Michigan and Michigan Tech), but as the CCSA grows, one team starts to stand out as another challenger: the College of Saint Scholastica.
The NMU Ski team has historically had a lot of success, including 9 past NCAA National Champions, 103 All-Americans and countless Olympians. This success has continued this season when the team claimed the overall College Cup, as the best College Team at the U.S. Cross Country Championships. The Wildcats then followed up that success with strong performances this past weekend in Coleraine, Minnesota, with 3 wins out of four races and 8 podiums out of 12.
