The Junior Girls title was taken out by Still Sparken, who blitzed the course to finish in a time of 41:43, the eighth fastest overall time for the Sunday morning session.

Flaamin finished three minutes back for second place, while Elementrix rounded out the podium three minutes later.

Skier Abby Squire said the support of driver Nathan Hedley and observer Samantha Hedley had pushed them through the course.

‘‘We got a bit tired at Five Mile, but our observer and driver pushed us so that was good, and we got over the line,’’ Squire said.

Squire’s fellow skier Cambelle Hedley said that while she was ‘‘sore as’’ she was glad she pushed through and kept going.

The Junior Boys title was won by Murrumbidgee Maddog, and skiers George Payne and Harrison Tooth.

From Colleambally, a small town with a population of just 600 people, the team posted the fastest time of the morning session.

‘‘I’m over the moon, I’ve got a sore face from the rain, but you get over it with the excitement and the enjoyment of the win,’’ Tooth said.
