Willmar nordic ski team to show off 'home course' for CLC meet: On the fly


Spurred by a few parents and backed by school administrators, cross-country skiing emerged here as a varsity sport in 1998-99.

On the 10th anniversary of the program, the Cardinals will for the first time host the Central Lakes Conference meet.

Today's meet starts at 2 p.m. on the carefully-groomed trails of the Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center.

Seven of the 10 schools in the Central Lakes Conference will participate.
