FARMINGTON, Maine – The University of Maine at Farmington Nordic Ski Team has qualified for the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA) National Championship from March 1-7, 2015 at Mount Bachelor in Bend, Oregon.

The women’s team qualified after finishing fourth at the USCSA Eastern Regional Championship last week in Vermont. Emily Ramsey, Ellie Pinto, and Alisha Labbe will represent the team.

In last weekend’s 8.5 interval start, Emily Ramsey raced her way to a sixth place finish out of 30 qualified racers and only 38-tenths of a second out of the top five. Her overall race time was 29:59 and two seconds off the lead pace of Clarkson’s Olivia Dawson. Alisha Labbe placed 17th (35:26) and Ellie Pinto came in 24th (44:03).

In the 0.8k sprint qualifier, Ramsey once again sat in sixth on the leader board with a time of 2:55. Labbe came in 14th place after crossing the line at the 3:23 mark.

Ramsey nearly claimed the top spot in the 15k mass skate in fourth place (59:28) and two seconds behind Cornell’s Sarah Nadeau’s leading time. In ninth place, Labbe was seven seconds off the lead pace and finished with an overall time of 1:04:31.

On the men’s side, Bryce Neal and Joshua Richards qualified for the USCSA Nordic National Championship as eligible individuals. Neal ranked 20th out of 42 qualified racers after posting a 28:22 time in the 8.5k interval last weekend in Vermont. Neal also placed 24th in the 0.8k sprint qualifier with a time of 2:58. Richards placed 37th (3:39) in the event. In the 15k mass skate, Neal posted a 1:04:27, which placed him in 27th and Richards followed in 32nd at 1:12:41.

ALPINE SKIER HASKELL ON ALL-EAST FIRST TEAM

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College women's alpine skier Mardi Haskell (Holderness, N.H.) made the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association All-East First Team for the second straight year.

Haskell, the EISA Rookie of the Year in 2014, was even better in 2015. She won the Middlebury Carnival slalom and also had finishes of third, third, fourth, fourth, and ninth. Haskell also had top-10 finishes in the giant slalom at fifth, sixth, and sixth.

Haskell will return to the NCAA Division I Skiing Championships next week at Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid. She will ski the giant slalom on Thursday and the slalom on the closing day on Saturday.

At last year's national meet in Utah, Haskell was 12th in the slalom and 20th in the giant slalom. The top five finishers in a discipline earn first team All-American honors and the next five finishers are on the second team.

Colby and head coach Danny Noyes will take a full team of three women to nationals for the second straight year.

Grossman 40th at NCAA Championships in women's 5K freestyle race

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Bates senior Hallie Grossman placed 40th in the women's 5K freestyle race on Wednesday, the first day of the NCAA National Collegiate Skiing Championships.

Grossman (South Burlington, Vt.), the first woman in Bates Nordic skiing history to compete at four NCAA championships, covered the course at Mt. Van Hoevenburg in 16:11.5, 1.5 seconds behind 39th-place Heather Mooney of Middlebury.

The two-year captain, 2015 First Team All-EISA selection and women's Nordic Skier of the Week at the St. Lawrence Carnival two weeks ago in Lake Placid, did not have her best race, having finished fourth overall in three freestyle races on the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association circuit this year. In the 5K freestyle race on the same course at the St. Lawrence Carnival on Feb. 27, she took eighth place.

Grossman will race again for the final time in her Bates career on Friday in the women's 15K classical technique race, which begins at 10am at Mt. Van Hoevenburg.

SKIERS LEAVITT, HASKELL EARN ALL-AMERICAN HONORS

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College's Sierra Leavitt (Casco, Maine) and Mardi Haskell (Holderness, N.H.) can call themselves All-Americans after finishing ninth and 10th in the giant slalom at the NCAA Division I Skiing Championships on Thursday at Lake Placid's Whiteface Mountain.

Leavitt and Haskell are both on the second team after finishing within places six to 10. The top five finishers are on the first team. Colby teammate Jeanne Barthold (Lyme, N.H.) took 22nd place.

On the men's side, Colby's Craig Marshall (Carrabassett Valley, Maine) was disqualified on his first run.

The Mules, with a full team of three women for the second straight year, finished fifth in the country in the giant slalom with 52 points. Colby was just one point behind Montana State (53) for fourth. The Mules were first among Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA) schools.

Leavitt and Haskell are Colby's first All-Americans for the alpine ski program since 2010. The pair are the first women since Abbi Lathrop '06 won the giant slalom national title in 2006 to earn All-American honors. Leavitt and Haskell are the first two women to earn All-American honors in the same event since sisters Abbi Lathrop and Jenny Lathrop each made the second team in the giant slalom in 2004.

Leavitt was in eighth place after an opening run of 1:12.41. Her second run of 1:13.24 was the 12th-fastest, but dropped her just one spot to ninth with a two-run total time of 2:25.65.

Haskell was in 13th place after a 1:13.30 opening run and need a big effort in the second run to get in the top 10. She got it by clocking a 1:12.66, the sixth-best closing run.

With five of the top skiers remaining to take their second runs, Leavitt was in fifth place and Haskell was in sixth. Fortunately for Haskell, one of the skiers had a poor second run to help her get in the top 10.

Barthold had runs of 1:15.26 and 1:13.76 for a two-run time of 2:29.02. Her second run was 19th.

The alpine skiers are back on the mountain Saturday for slalom racing. The men's first run is at 9 a.m., followed by the women's opening run at 10 a.m.
