UAF skiers dominated the first day of the two-day Alaska Nordic Cup, grabbing the top three spots in both races Saturday at foggy Kincaid Park.

Nichole Bathe took a decisive nine-second victory in the women’s 5-kilometer freestyle race while Michael Fehrenbach held off teammate Logan Hanneman by 1.6 seconds to win the men’s 10-K freestyle.  The Nanooks produced the top four finishers and the top five NCAA finishers in the men’s race.

UAA’s top finishers were Patricia Sprecher, fourth in the women’s race, and Andrew Arnold, seventh overall and sixth among NCAA skiers. Missing for the Seawolves were NCAA All-Americans Marine Dusser and Lukas Ebner, who are in Italy competing in the World University Games.

 The series concludes Sunday with a classic race scheduled for the Hillside ski trails.
