FRANCONIA, N.H. -- Mardi Haskell ended an illustrious alpine ski career at Colby College by taking 14th place in the slalom at the NCAA Division I Skiing Championships at Cannon Mountain on Friday.

Michael Boardman placed 21st for the Mules in the men's slalom.

Haskell earned her fourth All-American honor in the giant slalom on Wednesday. She had finished fourth in the slalom at nationals the past two years, but was 13th after the opening run. She had some problems about one-third of the way down the course where many other skiers had issues as well.

Haskell had a two-run total time of 1:59.64 on runs of 1:00.46 and 59.18.

Boardman, who placed 14th in the giant slalom on Wednesday, had another solid result with his 21st-place finish. He had runs of 59.00 and 55.13 for a total time of 1:54.13.

JACKSON, N.H. -- The Colby College Nordic ski team had all four skiers in the top 20 on the final day of the NCAA Division I Skiing Championships at the Jackson Touring Center on Saturday.

Colby's entire ski program (alpine and Nordic combined) finished 10th in the country and were just 3.5 points out of nine place. The Mules were the top Division III team in the country.

Mule sophomore Zane Fields went from finishing 35th at last year's 20-kilometer freestyle mass start to take 13th place this year. He got off to a nice opening lap of four to stay in the top 15 the entire way. Fields had a time of 47:17.6 and finished just behind Jordan Fields (Zane's brother) of Williams College.

"Zane's a better skater and last year the long distance was classic, but it's still an impressive result," Colby head coach Tracey Cote said. "Zane's finish is the best male NCAA result we have ever had and Silas (Eastman) tied our previous best result."

Eastman and Olivia Amber both placed 18th in their respective races, while Amy Bianco was right with Amber at the line in 19th place in the women's race. Eastman clocked a time of 48:00.9 in his final collegiate race and combined with Fields to score 32 points on a day when the high temperature was one degree.

"I am so proud of this entire team and of these four skiers today. They weren't intimated by anyone and skied their hearts out," Cote said. "It's a great way to send off three amazing seniors. Amy, Olivia, and Silas have forever made a significant mark in our program and Colby athletics. We had so much Colby alumni support on the coldest day of the year, huge thanks to all of them. The course was a sea of blue."

Amber, an All-American a year ago, had a finish of 41:47.1 over the 15K course. Bianco and Amber raced near each other the entire way, with Bianco finishing in 41:47.2.

"Amy and Olivia were great, it was a fitting end for them in a photo finish," Cote said.

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine -- Colby College's Michael Boardman capped off a successful few days for Mule skiers by winning the second run at the U.S. Alpine Championships on Tuesday at Sugarloaf.

Boardman had a starting bib of 33 and was in 21st place after his opening run of 1:12.73. His second trip down the hill beat all competitors, with a blazing 1:08.82 to move him up to a 12th-place finish in 2:21.55.

"His second run inspection was very relaxed and focused on where he could ski better," said Danny Noyes, Colby's head alpine ski coach. "The track held up really well, so it wasn't one of those times where the guys running early had a huge advantage. His experience on the hill certainly helped, but it was the combination of comfort on the hill and skill that made him the best to run that course."

Colby teammate Max Richard also skied well, finishing 27th in 2:25.87 (1:13.76, 1:12.11). Richard was starting 60th on the day.

Boardman and Richard teamed with Colby women's skiers Mardi Haskell, Jessica Reinhart, Sandra Schoepke, and Lexi Hanus to help the Eastern Region win The Regions Cup for the first time in 20 years. The Regions Cup is a calculated score between the three regions (Eastern, Rocky/Central, and West).

"Our Colby skiers played a huge part in that finish," Noyes said. "We had 10 results in the top 30, which is the skiers who score points. Six of those were in the top 20 and three were in the top 15."

Hig Roberts, the brother of Colby graduate and alpine skier Cassady Roberts '13, won the giant slalom title. He was third after the opening run and stayed consistent with a fourth-place second run.

UM Presque Isle names new Nordic Ski Coach

PRESQUE ISLE, ME – The University of Maine at Presque Isle is happy to announce the hiring of Tim Whiton as the new Head Nordic Ski Coach. The position became vacant earlier this year when Joey Bard resigned to pursue other interests.

University of Maine at Presque Isle President Ray Rice is pleased with the addition of Whiton to UMPI. "I am very pleased that Tim Whiton will be joining the coaching and admission staffs of the University. His extensive experience and success in Nordic skiing, from racing at a high level through college, to coaching top junior programs and colleges, will ensure that we can build upon our Nordic program's competitiveness and success. Tim's knowledge of Maine, its school programs from the Carrabassett Valley to Caribou, perfectly positions him in terms of recruitment and simply getting the word out to the rest of the state and New England about UMPI's outstanding opportunities for Nordic skiers. We look forward to both Tim and his wife Tara to joining the UMPI community and returning to the great state of Maine!" ... 11024.html

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College graduate Mardi Haskell (Holderness, N.H.), a four-time All-American skier, is the College's nominee for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award.

Since the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) does not sponsor skiing as a conference sport, Haskell will be part of a separate pool of nominees selected by an NCAA committee. A committee put together by the NESCAC office selects the NCAA Woman of the Year nominee to represent the league.

Haskell was a four-time All-American for Colby at the NCAA Division I Championships. She was an All-East First Team selection all four years and was the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA) Rookie of the Year. Haskell had two All-American honors in the slalom and two in the giant slalom. She finished fourth in the slalom as both a sophomore and junior and closed out her career finishing 10th in the giant slalom at the 2017 NCAA Championships.

In her final season, Haskell placed in the top 10 in every slalom race and all but one giant slalom race on the EISA circuit. Overall, Haskell finished in the top seven in 33 of 48 races in her career.

At Colby's Senior Awards Ceremony in May, Haskell earned The Millett Award as the top senior female athlete. At the U.S. Alpine Championships in late March 2017, Haskell finished eighth in the slalom and 13th in the giant slalom.

While at Colby, Haskell was a captain for the ski team, served as an orientation leader, and was a lab research assistant. She also volunteered for the Colby Relay for Life for three years and worked as a monitor in the athletic center.

Haskell graduated from Colby in May with a degree in biology. She was a three-time NESCAC Winter All-Academic Team selection and was a Champlin Scholar, an honor given to biology majors who have achieved academic excellence.

The NCAA Woman of the Year Award honors graduating student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, service, and leadership. The winner for 2017 will be announced in Indianapolis on Oct. 22.
