The Westonka Activities Department is proud to name Mound Westonka High School junior Nordic ski captain Charlie Reinhardt Athletic/Activities Student of the Week for the week of Jan. 8, 2018.
On Jan. 6, the White Hawks varsity team competed in the Mesabi East Invitational at Giant’s Ridge, which is the largest high school Nordic ski meet in the country. Reinhardt competed in the 5km classic race and finished seventh overall.
“A top-10 finish in either of the varsity races at Mesabi is fantastic skiing,” said head coach Sue Harrison.
“[Reinhardt’s] place in the race set the boys team up for their 17th team placing out of the 56 schools competing!”
On Jan. 9, the team competed in a 5km conference skate race at Battle Creek Park in St Paul. Reinhardt was the top boys finisher in the race, finishing 15 seconds ahead of the second-place skier from Highland Park High School. It was Reinhardt’s second conference race win of the season.
Teamwork. Leadership. Respect. Integrity. Excellence.
