Nadler, Schisler in Top 5 at Wolf Tracks
The debut Wolf Tracks Rendezvous 42K at Minocqua Winter Park on Feb. 4 was a big success as skiers from snow-starved areas north and south converged on the beautiful trails at MWP. The race was won by Adam Swank, 36, of Duluth, MN, in 1:58:42.2. Second went to Peter Koenen, 26, of Madison, WI, in 2:01:57.2, and third went to high schooler Andrew Nadler, 17, of Chicago, as he continued a strong season with a 2:04:20.4. Fourth was taken by Matt Zak, 38, of Eveleth, MN, in 2:06:44.9. You might remember Matt was the winner of the NIN the year we held it it in Kenosha. And fifth went to Jason Schisler, 27, of Gurnee, in 2:10:17.5. Other Illinois skiers did very well in this race, an interesting sign of what can happen when we aren't the only ones with no-snow for much of the season. And a special hats-off to race director Jim DiDomenico, who just happens to have plenty of Illinois roots himself.
