Otto Gilbert swept all five long-track races Tuesday at Cuddy Midtown Park in an Alaska Speedskating Club pack-style event. 

Gilbert won races of 100, 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 3,000 meters, and Steve Bergt finished second in each event. Gilbert’s largest margin of victory came in the 500, when he finished in 50.99 seconds to beat Bergt (53.39) by more than two seconds. 

Sam Dougherty and Ana Jaeger were winners last weekend in the Alaska Mountaineering and Hiking speed skate-skate ski duathlon at the Cuddy Midtown Park skating oval. 

Dougherty won the men’s division, clocking a combined time of 18 minutes, 51 seconds on a course that included 3.2 kilometers of speed skating and four kilometers of cross-country skiing. 

Jaeger topped the women, who skated 2.5 kilometers and skied three. She finished with a combined time of 16:45. 

Jaeger and Paul Butera teamed to win a mixed relay, and the father-son team of Lukas and Fred Stutzer won a men’s relay.
