2016 Boys State Champions - Coach Pub, William, Joey, Henry, Conlan, Foss, Addie, Torsten and Coach Drew


Welcome to the Southwest High School Nordic Ski Website

Scroll to the bottom for the team calendar.

The 2015 - '16 season was an exciting one! The Boy's Nordic Ski Team won the Minnesota State Championship. The first State Championship for the school in any sport for over 35 years! The Girl's Nordic Ski Team qualified two girls to the state meet. We are looking forward to another very successful season in 2016 - '17. The boy's team will graduate only one senior and the girl's team will be powerhouse of young sophomores and incoming freshman girls.
