Vasa lead the competition for the first two races before Team NordicSkiRacer took the lead with the Frosty Freestyle and Krazy Klassic races. Hanson Hills / Cross Country Ski Shop was in close contention, particular over the last few races in the season.
Chris Jones was the points keeper for the Brumbaugh Cup competition.
The Brumbaugh Cup is a team scored competition with each designated race counting each team’s top 5 senior male skiers and top 3 senior female skiers. It is scored like a cross-country running event with first place receiving 1 point; down through the max of 35 male skiers (7 teams x 5 skiers) and 21 female skiers (7 teams x 3 skiers). The lowest point total wins each race and the lowest point total of all designated races wins the Brumbaugh Cup. The designated Brumbaugh races include those races where there is a single Michigan Cup points paying event.
