Yesterday evening the Far West Nordic Junior National Team was announced (a photo of Erika is featured in the announcement!). This team represents California, Nevada and Arizona against the other USSA Divisions. As expected, Nevada Union Nordic team member Erika, had earned a spot on the 20 Girl squad, by racing in all seven qualifier races and producing a qualifying time in four of the races. The final qualifying race was held yesterday morning and was on an extremely challenging course. This year Junior Nationals will be held near Cable Wisconsin on 6-13 March. There are four races against the best junior Cross Country skiers in the country.
