Marlborough – Marlborough sisters Kaya and Natalia Dorogi both finished the first ski race of the season with silver in their respective age divisions at Bradford Ski Area in Haverhill. The sisters, who are three years apart, also finished their last race of last year's season April 2, 2011, with silver medals at the New England Mountain Dew Championships at Mount Snow, Vt.

Skiing is a passion for both girls, and they compete for the Nashoba Rovers Ski Team, based  in the Nashoba Valley Ski Area in Westford. Although it might not look like it's snow season, the girls have been training at Nashoba Valley Ski Area since December 2011, and they said the ski conditions are very good.  

Natalia, 12, said, “Usually, in January, the races are on really cold days, but now it's like spring skiing.”  

Kaya, 9, said “I hope everyone gets out there skiing this winter because you’ll feel like flying.”

In skiing, the competitions are set up based on age and the divisions span two years. That means the girls don’t compete against each other and getting the same results on big race days is special for both of them.  

According to Natalia, “It's double fun to get double silver for our team and family.”

Kaya said, “I love skiing with my sister because we get to train on the same day and the same time.”  

Their mother, Irena, agrees and added, “It's a lifelong sport and for them to go out and compete and rank the same has really been remarkable.”
