College: Vermont wins St. Lawrence Carnival at Lake Placid{mosimage}LAKE PLACID, N.Y. Senior Jamie Kingsbury and sophomore Greg Hardy each won the slalom to lead the University of Vermont ski team to its second carnival victory of the season in day two of the St. Lawrence Carnival in Lake Placid, N.Y.

The Catamounts finished the weekend with 787 team points, ahead of second place Middlebury (741 points) and third place Dartmouth (647 points).

‘Overall we looked really good on the weekend’ director of skiing and head alpine coach Bill Reichelt said. ‘Unfortunately we had some injuries on the women’s alpine team but the men’s alpine team continues to come together and the nordic team is right on. Now it would be great to go home and get a win at the Vermont Carnival this weekend.’

Hardy won his second race of the weekend by taking the slalom, following up his first place in the giant slalom Saturday. Sophomore Zac Brown continued his strong weekend with a fifth place finish and freshman Craig Leaman was 15th overall.

In the women’s slalom, Vermont had three top-10 finishes, led by Kingsbury’s first place. The tri-captain has finished in the top-three in all four of her races so far this season. Sophomore Jilyne McDonald picked up a fourth place and senior Amy Cochran was eighth.

The Catamounts return to action next weekend in the Vermont Carnival in Stowe, Vt., on Friday, Feb. 3 and Saturday, Feb. 4.
