STEPHENVILLE  Jamie Merrigan won top honours at the Snowy Owl Classic held Saturday at Whaleback Nordic Ski Club.

Merrigan, a member of Blow Me Down Trails in Corner Brook, posted a time of 31 minutes and 47 seconds over the eight-kilometre course to win top spot in the individual open category.

Brian Dunphy of Whaleback Nordic posted a time of 32 minutes and 16 seconds to claim second place, while Andrew May of Blow Me Down Trails finished third with a final clocking of 34 minutes and 21 seconds.

Colin Fowlow of Blow Me Down Trails was the top junior skier finishing in 37 minutes even for fifth overall, while clubmate Hugh Warkentin had the second-best time among junior competitors with a final time of 39 minutes and 46 seconds, which was good enough for seventh overall.

Saturday’s race was held under a blue sky on a firm fast track after a batch of fresh powder hit the region over the weekend.

It made for some great skiing conditions and at the end of the day the Stephenville Super Sliders won the team competition narrowly edging out the Blow-Me-Downers who had their best showing in years coming in just ahead of the Kippens and West Toutons.

Half of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
