On the nordic side, the relays were cancelled due to poor weather conditions, with day one scores being doubled for the final carnival results. Juniors Jenny Hamilton (Aspen, Colo.) and Evelyn Dong (Wayland, Mass.) led the women, finishing in a fifth place tie in the 5K classical, with a time of 19:10. Placing eighth (19:19) in the race for the Panthers was first-year racer Cassidy Edwards (Glen Arbor, Mich.).

Senior Garrott Kuzzy (Minneapolis, Minn.) led the men in the 10K race, placing second overall in 33:14. Finishing in sixth place with a time of 34:30 was senior Donovan Dums (Hayward, Wis.), followed by first-year racer Tim Reynolds (Bristol, Vt.) in seventh (34:32).
