Nordic ski meet in Alex tomorrow postponed

The Alexandria Nordic ski meet that was scheduled to take place at Andes Tower Hills on Saturday morning has been cancelled because of the expected cold temperatures that are forecasted in the area.

The Cardinal Nordic skiers were ready to host the Central Lakes Conference meet after having their first four meets on the road this season. Alexandria head coach Jeremy Rapp said the team will try hard to reschedule the meet at a later date, possibly on January 20.

The Cardinals are already hosting the CLC Championship meet on January 28 and Rapp said the team would like to host a meet out at Andes Tower Hills before that to let the skiers get used to the course.
