The Headquarters makes in four years in a row

Michigan Cup

Mon, Mar  22, 2010 - By Mike Muha

Congratulations to the Cross Country Ski Headquarters Team for winning the 2010 Michigan Cup, the forth time in a row, and the fifth time since 2004! As the sun came out or the clouds, Team Captain Frank Rynalski accepted the Cup at Saturday's Michigan Cup bike, run, lunch and awards ceremony at the Cross Country Ski Headquarters in Higgins Lake.

Cross Country Ski Headquarters wins the 2010 Michigan Cup

Skiers from the Michigan Cup teams gained points, based on their overall place, at every event raced during the season. Each skier's points were added together for an individual's total team points. The points from all senior skiers were added together for a senior point total, and all the junior points were added for a junior total. The overall Michigan Cup team totals were computed by adding 80% of the senior points with 20% of the junior points.

The results were very close, with the Headquarters just barely edging out Hanson Hills/Cross Country Ski Shop by less than 500 points, 29,871.6 to 29,381.8. The Vasa Ski Club was not far behind with 28,357.2 points, and might have won if they had sent racers to the Team Time Trial.
