The view from the summit looks pretty good to former Phoenix Nordic skier and coach Bryan Fish. In May, Fish was named the Continental Cup coach for the U.S. Cross Country Ski Team. As one of only four coaches on the U.S. Ski Team staff, his responsibilities will be to coach at national level camps, provide coaching and race support at international development races and support the education and implementation of a national development pipeline.

“I am primarily in the U.S. for the summer months where I help coach at national level junior and elite camps,” explained Fish of his new position. “I will provide race support at many European development events in the fall and winter months. I will help coach and organize events such as Junior World Championships, Under 23 World Championships and OPA (an elite racing series in central Europe).”

Fish was a two-time participant for UW-Green Bay at the NCAA Championships, placing 16th in the 20 kilometer freestyle and 25th in the 10 kilometer classic in the 1997 NCAA Championships in Craftsbury, VT. Fish then coached (while employed at nearby FEECO, Inc. in research and development) the Phoenix from 1998 to 2006 when the team produced some of its top race results in program history. Laura Anderson ‘01 still holds the top all-time finish for the women, placing 9th in the 15 kilometer freestyle at the 2001 NCAA Championship and Josh Tesch ’00 placed 13th in the 10 kilometer freestyle at the 2000 NCAA Championship in Heber City, UT. They were bested only recently by Santiago Ocariz who placed 10th in the 20K freestyle at the 2010 NCAA Championship and is now a member of the CXC elite program.
