Skiing at Nationals

The Colby Women’s alpine team took the NCAA Division I Championships at Whiteface Mountain by storm last weekend, finishing in seventh place. Mardi Haskell ’17 proved herself as one of the top skiers in the country, capturing fourth place in the slalom. After her first run, Haskell was in third place, and finished with an fast run of 58.53 to finish with a two run total time of 1:57.44. By finishing in the top five, Haskell was named a first team All-American, her second All-American honor in the Slalom.

Sierra Leavitt ’16 and Jeanne Barthold’ 15 also added points for the Mules. Colby collected 94 points over the two-day competition and finished just two points out of sixth. The Mules were first among NESCAC schools and finished second in the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA). Leavitt was awarded the All-American Honor after finishing in 22nd place in the Giant Slalom and Barthold captured 29th place after struggling during her first run.

For the Colby men, Craig Marshall ’16 placed 21st. In overall scoring with alpine and Nordic, Colby finished 12th overall with 109 points.
