NCAA: Dartmouth maintains lead in Colby Carnival, alpine today


Middlebury may have claimed the individual wins but the Dartmouth Nordic teams took the overall win during Saturday’s Nordic Events at the Sugarloaf Touring Center, contributing to Dartmouth’s massive 755 point total with Middlebury and the University of Vermont following with 582 and 560 points, respectively.
    With the Alpine events canceled due to hazardous snow conditions, the spotlight turned to the Nordic events. While the alpine racers may not have been able to add to their team’s totals point wise they made the trip down to the Nordic center and contributed volumes of cheering the likes of which have yet to be heard this season. The races were also quite exciting with the frozen course yielding very fast conditions as well as many a broken pole.
    Triumphing for the men in the 20k freestyle was Middlebury’s Simeon Hamilton, completing the course in a time of 54:30.4 followed by a pack of Dartmouth skiers headed by Eric Packer who was a mere half second back for second place with a 54:30.9. Following Packer was Patrick O’Brien, clocking a 51:31.3, less than a second behind Hamilton.
    For the Women’s 15k freestyle, Middlebury’s freshman Elise Moody-Roberts came out on top with a winning time of 48:11.1. Yet again a Dartmouth pack followed close behind with Sophie Caldwell only four tenths off with a 48:11.5. Only six-tenths behind Caldwell was another Dartmouth skier, Hannah Dreissigaker, who laid down a 48:12.1 for third place.
    Today the action runs to Sugarloaf mountain for an unexpected third day of the Colby Carnival as the alpine racers have one last shot at glory before the NCAA national championships in a week and a half.
