Well, that’s not entirely true. The one thing that appears more painful than Cross-Country Skiing is being a lacrosse goalie.
Pittsfield High senior Nikolai Pixley happens to cover both those bases during his athletic career as a General.
In the winter, Pixley straps on his skis and competes in Nordic Skiing. In the spring, he throws on a mask and gloves, grabs a large-netted stick and tries to stop guys from firing rock-hard lacrosse balls into Pittsfield High’s net.
