Mt. Abram, Orono, Maranacook lead after Day 1

RUMFORD — The Mt. Abram boys’ Nordic ski team placed five skiers among the top eight places Thursday on the first day of the MVC and KVAC Nordic Skiing Championships at Black Mountain of Maine to take a commanding advantage into Friday’s finale.

Gaelan Boyle-Wight of Telstar was the top MVC boys’ skier, but Mt. Abram’s depth was on display after that. Brandon Hemingway finished in third place, Levi Bouchard in fourth, David Kidd in fifth, Dylan Starbird in sixth and Dillon Wells in eighth for the Roadrunners.

Jayshaun Wright led Mountain Valley with an 11th-place finish to pace the Falcons to second place in the Day 1 standings.

In the MVC girls’ race, only Orono had enough skiers to fill a full team in the 18-person field, and the Red Riots sit atop that competition.

In the KVAC races, Roy Varney of Leavitt completed the 5-kilometer course in a day’s best 16:08, but four Maranacook skiers followed in second through fifth positions. The Black Bears’ fifth skier tripped the line in 12th. The Black Bears’ pack finished in front of a strong Mt. Blue contingent, led by Sam Stinson in sixth position.

In the girls’ KVAC race, Meg Charles of Mt. Blue paced the field in 19:01.3 to earn the win, but again the Black Bears’ pack was too strong. Laura Parent placed second and her teammates finished in fourth, sixth, eighth and 11th to push her team to the front — just barely — over the Cougars. Behind Charles, Mt. Blue’s pack finished in fifth, seventh, 10th and 12th positions.

Cameron Bancroft led the Oxford Hills boys in eighth position, while the Vikings’ Olivia Swift was her team’s top finisher in 21st. Harrison Bigo-Lowe was Edward Little’ top male finisher in 22nd position.

The second race — a freestyle event — is Friday at Titcomb Mountain in Farmington.
