Nordic skiing had its final regular season meet on February 6, and on the boys’ side, Adam Synnestvedt and Zach Scopinich-Burgel finished 1-2, with Penn Rogers coming in seventh. Rounding out the top five finishers for Concord-Carlisle: Roman Lin in 12th and then Will Bowers in 21st for his best finish of the season. 

For the girls, Sarah Kirincich and Katie Pohlig finished second and third. This was the third straight race in which Pohlig finished right behind Kirincich. Uma Sumnotra came in 12th, Emerson Lin was 25th, and Miriam Sachs in 33rd rounded out the top five finishers for CC. 

The race was the longest of the season. Athletes made five laps around the Weston Ski Track, skiing 8.7 kilometers, or 5.4 miles. 

Synnestvedt, who’s moved into the top spot for his team, also races in the Eastern Cups, which has teams from all over New England: “Racing in Eastern Cups has helped me improve my skiing,” he said.  

For Pohlig, it was the last regular-season race of her high school career.  

“It didn’t hit me until I was on the course that this was my last league race,” she said. “It was pretty fun, and I was smiling the whole time.” 

Alpine Skiing had a giant slalom race on February 8 which saw the CC women pitted against #1 seed Lincoln-Sudbury.  

When two Warrior skiers fell, that created an opening for Concord-Carlisle to finish first, but it was not to be: LS had two skiers finish before Juniper Flint (’27), who took fourth overall. Then, two more LS competitors finished before Amanda Reynolds (’24), who had her best race of the season, finishing 20th.  

The four LS skiers combined for 45 points, which was enough to knock off the Patriots’ 41 points. 

Bella Audette (’26) took 22nd place, Izzy Poole (’25) took 24th, Grace Creamer (’24) came in 26th and Siena Triola (’24) wrapped up the points with a 32nd-place finish.  

The #1-seeded men came ready to bring it on a fast course.  

Theo Remington (’26) and Henry Flint (’25) led the way, taking the top two spots overall. It was Remington’s highest finish in his high school career. Tucker Kuftinec (’26) followed in ninth place as the Patriots brought in the top three spots versus Weston. Drew Callen (’24) and Jamie Poole (’26) finished 14th and 15th to overwhelm Weston in the end. Harry Nerrow (’24) came in 33rd to put the finishing touch on the Patriots win of 55-36.  

February 15 will be the last race in slalom. The boys will take on Winchester for the league title, and CC will also celebrate its seniors that day.
