Elk River’s trio of state qualifiers in Nordic Skiing made a good showing at the state meet Thursday, placing 29th through 49th among 119 racers at Mesabi.

Elk senior Nate Webster placed 29th with a 3:14.96 pursuit time (16:11 freestyle, 15:38 classic).

Elk junior Joey Martin placed 44th with 32:13.8 (16:13 and 16:00.8).

Elk junior Breck Hickman placed 49th in 32:40 (16:25 and 16:15).

The champion was Hopkins senior Jacob Ellingson in 29:24.4.

Top-ranked Eden Prairie was team champion by a 378 to 358 margin over second-place Ely, with Forest Lake third at 345.

Eden Prairie is the team that beat No. 4 ranked Elk River by just 390 to 367 at sectionals a week earlier, with the Elks top skier, Jake Schroeder, slowed by the flu.

The girls race was won by Anna Kubek of Duluth East in 33:58.
Wayzata was champion with 365, followed by Duluth East 362 and Roseville Area 351.
