Second year head coach Joe Wacker, a Nordic skier at Park just six years ago, was able to inject some life back into the District 833's Nordic skiing program last season. This year, the program has nearly doubled in size overall. The number of skiers went from 45 in 2012 to 82.
The District 833 Nordic ski teams from East Ridge, Park and Woodbury combined for a one-day classic sprint relay against state skiing powers Roseville and Northfield on Jan. 25 at Como Park in St. Paul.
Just six years ago, Joe Wacker was a football player first-and-foremost. However, in 2006, Wacker joined the Nordic skiing program at Park and he was hooked. As the new head Nordic skiing coach for East Ridge, Park and Woodbury high schools, Wacker, a 2007 Park graduate, now hopes many student-athletes in District 833 will share the same experience he had.
