Vag Ski Race Team Dominates!
Once again the Vagabond Ski Race Team dominated the 2018/19 Milwaukee Metropolitan Ski Council (MMSC) ski race season winning the overall combined team championship. The men’s team finished first in all 14 of their races and the women’s team finished first in nine of 14 races. In order of finish behind the Vagabonds were the Sitzmarks, Snomad and Holy Hill ski teams.

Vagabond Eric VanWormer who races in the highest M-1 class was the MMSC top overall racer by a small margin over Vagabond Norman Schlimbach. The top five racers in Class 1 are all Vagabonds. This year the team consisted of 25 members, including three new team members.
