Hanson Hills / Cross Country Ski Shop win Brumbaugh Cup

Tue, Mar  7, 2017 - By Mike Muha

Hanson Hills / Cross Country Ski Shop has won the 2017 Brumbaugh Cup as the best senior team, with 945 points. The Vasa Ski Club is second with 1,045 points, with Grand Rapids Nordic Ski Club comes in third with 1,167 points. As Ernie Brumbaugh stated, "It was a close battle throughout the year but HH/CCSS was able to come from behind with a great team effort at the Black Mountain races!"

The Brumbaugh Cup is a team scored competition with each designated race counting each team’s top 5 senior male skiers and top 3 senior female skiers. It is scored like a cross-country running event with first place receiving 1 point; down through the max of 35 male skiers (7 teams x 5 skiers) and 21 female skiers (7 teams x 3 skiers). The lowest point total wins each race and the lowest point total of all designated races wins the Brumbaugh Cup. The designated Brumbaugh races include those races where there is a single Michigan Cup points paying event.

Chris Jones kept track of points this year.

Congratulations members of Hanson Hills/Cross Country Ski Shop!
