Chenoweth takes 23rd place in women's slalom at NCAA Championships

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Competing in the first NCAA National Collegiate Skiing Championships event of her career, Bates College sophomore Kelsey Chenoweth took 23rd place out of 34 women in the giant slalom on Thursday at Whiteface Mountain.

Out of a field of 34 competitors, Chenoweth (Stowe, Vt.) recorded the 30th fastest first run (1:15.75) and the 22nd fastest second run (1:15.23). It is the best NCAA race finish by a Bates alpine skier since 2011 (Avril Dunleavy had a 23rd-place tie in 2012). Chenoweth was the sixth-fastest among competitors from Division III institutions.

NCAAs continue Friday with Nordic classical technique races, with Bates senior Hallie Grossman (South Burlington, Vt.) set to compete at Mt. Van Hoevenburg. The four-day championships conclude Saturday with Chenoweth competing in the women's slalom races at Whiteface. Chenoweth earned eight NCAA points on Thursday, putting Bates in 19th place out of 22 teams halfway through NCAAs.

Grossman's 8th and final NCAA race nets career-best 24th place

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Bates senior Hallie Grossman finished her outstanding collegiate career Friday with a career-best 24th-place finish in the women's 15K classical technique race at the NCAA National Collegiate Skiing Championships.

Racing in her eighth and final NCAA race, Grossman (South Burlington, Vt.) finished the Mt. Hoevenburg course in 51:22.8. She moved up from 28th place after her first turn through the stadium to 24th place after two, then maintained her position over the final five kilometers. Grossman finished 19.6 seconds ahead of 25th-place skier Mackenzie Kanady of Alaska-Anchorage, and 14.6 seconds behind 23rd-place Kathrin Schratt of Alaska-Anchorage.

The previous best NCAA finish for Grossman, who is the first Bates woman to compete at NCAAs in all four years of college, was her 25th-place showing in the women's 15K freestyle race in 2014.

The National Collegiate Skiing Championships conclude Saturday morning at Whiteface Mountain with the final alpine events. Bates sophomore Kelsey Chenoweth (Stowe, Vt.) will compete in the women's slalom.

COLBY'S AMBER 26TH IN 15K EVENT AT NCAA MEET

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Colby College Nordic skier Olivia Amber (Lake Nebagamon, Wis.) placed 26th in the 15-kilometer classic mass start at the NCAA Division I Skiing Championships on Friday on Mt. Van Hoevenberg.

Amber finished with a time of 51 minutes, 53.9 seconds in a test of endurance for the 40 skiers. Amber moved up as the race progressed, going from 32nd place about one-third into the event to 28th place at the two-thirds point.

Amber picked up five points for the finish after taking 31st place in Wednesday's opening 5K race.

University of New Mexico's Emilie Cedervaern won the race in a close finish with runner-up Veronika Mayerhofer (47:41.8) of the University of Utah. Those two skiers were about 1:10 in front of the third-place finisher.

Amber, a sophomore for head coach Tracey Cote, was competing at the NCAA meet for the second straight year.

HASKELL AN ALL-AMERICAN AGAIN AFTER A FOURTH IN THE SLALOM

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. --- Colby College's Mardi Haskell (Holderness, N.H.) is an All-American for a second time and proved herself as one of the top collegiate skiers in the country after taking fourth place in the slalom at the NCAA Division I Championships on Whiteface Mountain.

Haskell was in third place after a first run of 58.53 and then closed with a 58.54 for a two-run total time of 1:57.44. By finishing in the top five, Haskell earned first team All-American honors. She was on the second team after taking 10th in the giant slalom on Thursday.

"Mardi's first run was brilliant, from approach to focus to execution," Colby head coach Danny Noyes said. "Her second run wasn't as fluid, but she held it together through the conditions and pressure. I'm very proud of her commitment to herself, her team, and her school. It's a happy day for the Mules."

Haskell and teammates Sierra Leavitt and Jeanne Barthold combined to help the Mules finish seventh in the country in women's alpine skiing. Colby had 94 points over the two days and was just two points out of sixth place. The Mules were second among Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA) schools in women's alpine skiing and first among the four NESCAC schools.

Leavitt, an All-American in the giant slalom on Thursday, took 22nd place with runs of 1:01.46 and 1:00.40. Barthold had problems on her first run and then clocked a 1:02.78 on her second trip to finish 29th.

Monica Huebner of Denver University won the title in 1:56.52.

For the Colby men, Craig Marshall placed 21st with a 2:01.20 total on runs of 1:01.77 and 59.43. Marshall and Barthold were each competing in their final collegiate ski meet.

In overall scoring with alpine and Nordic, Colby finished 12th overall with 109 points.

Colby skiers no strangers to Sugarloaf
The Mules are making the most of their chances at the U.S. Alpine Championships.

CARRABASSETT VALLEY — Craig Marshall’s injured left hand kept him from competing at the U.S. Alpine Championships at Sugarloaf, but on Thursday morning, Marshall was at the finish line, cheering on his three Colby College teammates racing in the women’s giant slalom. “Come on, Mardi,” Marshall shouted as Mardi Haskell neared the end of her first run. “Stick it!” Haskell, along with Colby teammates Sierra Leavitt and Jeanne Barthold, competed in Thursday’s giant slalom championship. Haskell placed 14th with a two-run time of 2 minutes, 25.76 seconds. Barthold was 21st with a time of 2:29.47, while Leavitt finished 26th, at 2:30.97. All three are scheduled to race in Saturday’s slalom competition. Sugarloaf is Colby’s home mountain. It’s where the Mules train throughout the college season. The experience of competing is bigger than the sum of their results...
