Nick Youso, Logan Jensen and Louis Morrissey of the boys squad, and Gwendoline Youso and Mary Beth Mathews of the girls team qualified for the meet as individuals.
The meet was originally scheduled for Thursday, but with the forecast calling for a high temperature of two degrees below zero, it was pushed back to Friday. The mercury is projected to only rise to 13 degrees that day but skiers have ways to handle the cold.
The Lumberjacks are no strangers to Giants Ridge, having competed there last month for the Mesabi East Invitational, the largest high school Nordic ski meet in the country. And other than Morrissey, a freshman, every BHS skier enters Friday with previous experience at the state meet.
