Ski teams seek return to postseason success
January 8, 2021
The Cloquet-Esko-Carlton boys Nordic ski team is starting the season with a ranking that may remind some oldtimers around here of the glory days when Mike Marciniak, Joe Nowak and John Loumala coached a combination ski team that won multiple state skiing championships.
"This team looks to be a team full of everything a coach dreams of," said head coach Arne Maijala, now in his third year leading the team. He's not exaggerating. At the section meet last year, the boys team had four skiers place in the top 15, and all of them are returning.
