UVM leads alpine at Colby Carnival
UVM pulled off another impressive alpine performance at the
Colby Carnival, and lead Dartmouth by over 100 points with the final day of
Nordic racing tomorrow.
The Catamounts pulled off a remarkable podium sweep in the
women’s slalom today (January 26th) with Kristina Riis-Johanesen
taking another victory, Elise-Wolen Tefre in 2nd, and Kate
Ryley in third.
Slalom phenom, Johnathan Nordbotten (pictured right), put UVM on the top step
of the men’s podium too, joined by fellow Catamount, Travis Dawson. David
Donaldson, kept the ball rolling with another podium, this time
2nd place, and Hunter Black from Dartmouth put in a solid day as well,
pulling in a fourth place for Dartmouth.
The men’s GS was easily taken by UVM. They pulled off the
rare feat of putting four in the top-five, besting everyone, except of
course David Donaldson who took another win, and remains undefeated in EISA GS this season.
UVM wasn’t so dominant in the women’s giant slalom, but Kate
Ryley continued her undefeated GS tear, with her third win of the season. The 2012
NCAA champion from Harvard, Rebecca Nadler (pictured left), scored a 2nd, and Abigail
Fucigna a 3rd for Dartmouth. Bates celebrates a top-five as well, with Avril Dunleavy
