Coaching Staff

Morgan Wilkinson, Head Coach

Coach Wilkinson began his career teaching high school math and science at a small boarding school in central Arizona before moving to Colorado to teach at a charter school outside of a city called Boulder. I came to Cardigan in 2016 and I coach nordic skiing and rock climbing. I live with my wife and two daughters Maiya and Madelyn.

Nina Silitch, Assistant Coach

While living in Europe Coach Silitch developed her a passion for ski mountaineering, eventually competing at the World Cup level in this discipline. She is the first and only North American to win two World Cup gold medals in this sport. She is also passionate about coaching. At Cardigan she will be working with the mountain bike and cross country ski team. When not in the art room, you can find Nina running or skiing on mountain trails, watercolor painting and spending time with her husband, Michael, and their two boys, Birken ‘19 and Anders ‘21 and their dog Buddy.

Wednesday, December 11, the Cardigan Nordic Team traveled to Proctor Academy for the first race of the season. Despite the recent rain and warming earlier this week, the team has been gifted with early on snow training at Cardigan. Our focus so far has been on the classic technique due to snow conditions. Today was a freestyle race, which meant one could choose skate or classic. Our returning skiers skate skied a 1km relay of 2 laps each. Relay teams were: Kevin Gu ‘20/ Mac Wang ‘21, Reagan Moore ‘22 and Jeffrey Song ‘20, Sam Wang ‘20 skied as an independent team.

Our new skiers to nordic participated in their first race ever. Relay teams were: Harrison Huang ‘22 and Ian Macdonald ‘22, Patrick Kim ‘23 and Nathan Kim’23

Proctor hosted a welcoming and fun first race of the season race. Costumes were encouraged. Schools present were: Proctor, Holderness, Dublin, St Paul’s, and Andover. All schools were fortunate to enjoy Proctor’s snowmaking and ski on their 1.5km loop. Cardigan looks forward to the first Lakes Region race in early January at the Putney School. In the meantime, the Cougars will be doing a snow dance to bring more snow and continue to build and develop our Nordic skills while having fun.
