Good Afternoon MAST Families and Coaches:
I just received word that we can practice tonight. Please be sure that your son or daughter has a safe means of getting to and from practice. Remember, our practices are not mandatory so if you do not want to be driving tonight, or do not want your son or daughter to drive, feel free to stay home. We will have a practice for the Section IV athletes and alternates at 5pm on lane 3, and for all other Varsity and JV athletes from 6:30-8:45pm. Please meet on the South Chair for directed free skiing at 6:30. We will move to lanes 3 and 5 for gate training at 7:15.
Practice is cancelled for Wednesday, February 6. Most of our coaches will be attending the Section IV Championships during the day on Wednesday. We don’t have enough coaches to support a practice Wednesday evening. But you have six other training sessions to choose from this week. I want to encourage all of you to continue training often and with focus this week and next Monday and Tuesday. Our season is too short due to high school rules that govern our sport. Make the most of the time we have together now in preparation for next season.
We will have one final race at Hyland on Friday, along with one lane set aside for training. This is your last chance to see how much you have improved this season. I had hoped we could attract other high schools to join us, but it appears that several schools have had to re-schedule last week’s cancelled races for Friday. So as of now, we will be racing Washburn vs SW vs MAST. Since this will be a Friday race, I suggest that we race in FLANNEL (if you own something made out of flannel). Of course, flannel over a gs suit. If you do not wish to race, please send me an email. Otherwise, I will put everyone on the run order.
Here is the schedule for the evening:
The last Supplemental Training is scheduled for Saturday at Welch. We are training on Bakke, a nice steep pitch. This is a great opportunity to gain experience on a challenging race hill, one of the best ones in the State. Click HERE to register.
Check out the wonderful pictures on our website. So many happy faces.

See you soon.
