After making history last week with the school’s first-ever carnival win, the Middlebury College nordic and alpine ski teams repeated that feat as they won the St. Lawrence Carnival last weekend. And once again, they relied on the strengths of their nordic skiers to earn the victory.
In the Nordic men's 20K classic mass start race at Mt. Van Hoevenburg, Middlebury posted a strong showing, taking the 2-3-4-5 positions behind winner Ethan Foster of Vermont.Â For Middlebury, Sophomore Garrott Kuzzy (Minneapolis, Minn.) placed second in 1:02:38, 1:09 off the winning pace. Placing third was senior Colin Rodgers (Westford, Vt.) in 1:03:07, followed by senior Marshall Greene (Spokane, Wash.) in fourth (1:03:27) and rookie Dan Skold (Hopkins, Minn.) in fifth (1:03:45).Â
Middlebury was equally as tough on the women’s side, placing three in the top seven. The women's 15K classical race was a duel to the finish, as Dartmouth junior Chrissy May finished just a scant second behind Middlebury's Kate Newick, who won the race in 54:49.3. Anna McLoon of Harvard was third.
