MARQUETTE - Northern Michigan University Nordic ski team member George Cartwright has been named named the Central Collegiate Ski Association's Skier of the Week.
Cartwright cemented his place as one of the conference's best sprinters by claiming the CCSA crown in the men's Freestyle sprint last Saturday in Ishpeming.
He came from behind to win the A final.
Cartwright then helped the Wildcats to the Classic relay title as well, turning in the best lap as NMU pulled away to a 25-second victory.
Northern gets back into action Feb. 16-17 at Mt. Itasca in
Coleraine, Minn., for the distance Freestyle and Classic events that will decide the conference champions.
