The Kenai Central High School Nordic ski team will host the Region III meet Friday and Saturday at Tsalteshi Trails.

Friday will be a five-kilometer freestyle with an interval start. The boys varsity race starts at 1 p.m., with girls varsity and an adaptive sit ski 1K race to follow. Girls junior varsity is at 2 p.m., followed by the boys junior varsity.

Saturday, racers do a classic mass start. The girls junior varsity five-kilometer race is at 11 a.m., with the boys 7.5-kilometer junior varsity race at 11:45 a.m. An adaptive sprint race will follow.

The girls varsity five-kilometer race starts at 12:30 p.m., with the boys varsity 7.5-kilometer race to follow at 1:15 p.m.

Kenai Peninsula teams will be looking to keep intact quite a streak at the meet. Since the year 2000, a peninsula squad has won a team title at the Region III meet, whether it be boys or girls. The Soldotna boys could keep the streak intact by winning a third-straight team title. The Kenai girls, meanwhile, will be hunting a third title in four years after losing out to Colony last season.

Individually, Kenai Central senior Karl Danielson will look to continue a solid season by winning a second straight Region III Skimeister Award.
