In the individual standings (PDF), we now have two skiers with perfect scores of 1,000: Kaithlyn Patterson (Cross Country Ski Headquarters) and Brendan Baic (Team NordicSkiRacer) look to be the top juniors this year.

In the women's senior division, Strait Strider Tracy Hardin leads with 996 points. Gussie Peterson of Hanson Hills/Cross Country Ski Shop is in a close race with Grand Rapids Nordic's Amy Todd for second and third: 956 to 952 points.

The senior men's race is even closer: only 6 points separate the top three men. Strait Strider Denny Paull leads with 997 points, followed by the men of Traverse Nordic, Cliff Onthank and Todd Vigland with 994 and 991 points.

Could the Strait Striders take the top two senior places this year?
