State Champion Spotlight-Dolcie Tanguay

We now spotlight senior Dolcie Tanguay of Maine School of Science and Math.  Dolcie was the 2020 Class C Classical and Pursuit state champion.  We askedDolcie her about her preparations and what surprised her this season.

1)What were your preparations leading up to the state meet?   It all begins with summer training then working out consistently once the season actually starts. After some tough races leading up to states, I tried my best to stay healthy and positive going into the final races of my high school career (I can't believe it's already over!). 
2) How did you deal with the pressure and emotions that come along with competing in a state meet?  Funny enough, states were at Titcomb last year and I ended up getting second in classic, freestyle, and the pursuit. This year it felt like a second chance to finally reach my goal of winning a state championship. I only thought about positive outcomes and knew I just had to trust all the training leading up to these two races. My sister and I have a saying: "last one, fast one" so I knew I had to give it all I had to finish off high school skiing on a high note.
3) What was going through your mind at the starting gate?    Since all classes raced at the same location this year, it was an amazing feeling to race against all the girls that I've raced against locally, at states over the years, and alongside on the Maine Team.  I was just super excited the whole time. I was a little more nervous for the pursuit the second day because I never started first in a pursuit before, but it was still a good race. 
4)  What do you contribute your success to?   I would contribute my success to great teammates and coaches over the years. They are always there to push me to do my best and support me during competitions even if we don't race on the same team anymore. 
5)  What are your goals for next year?   My goals for next year are to ski competitively in college and see where that takes me. I expect collegiate racing to be quite a change from high school skiing so I'm looking forward to what it will be like. 
6) What surprised you the most about this season?   This season I was surprised to see how competitive the underclassmen girls were. They definitely kept me humble and on my toes this season! You go girls!! 
7)  What moment/event will you remember the most from the season?    I will never forget the fun times with my team at the farmhouse we have stayed at for the past two years during the state meet. From eating dinner together like a big family to chasing our coach's kids around the house to playing twister, the farmhouse was definitely the highlight of the season for me.
8) What do you like most about Nordic Skiing?  Definitely the people. Skiers are just the nicest people if you only race against each other once a year or practice together every day. It's always a positive environment when skiers are together.
