DARTMOUTH SKIWAY, NEW HAMPSHIRE-- The Alpine Ski Team capped off the Dartmouth Carnival with some solid results in the Slalom race on Day 2 of racing. Coach Kelsey Levine was pleased with the day's events, summarizing: "As a squad, it was great to see 3 finishers from both the men and the women today. Today's race was a nice rebound after our tough day yesterday."
The men were lead by a 12th place finish from Senior Captain Marc Talbott, who put down two strong runs to finish with a combined time of 1:45.87, 3.3 seconds behind winner Sandy Vietze of the University of Vermont. Coach Levine praised Talbott's performance, noting "it can be difficult to perform after a great first run - so it was impressive to see Marc do it twice in a row." Rounding off the scoring squad for the men's team were Bryan Bailey '19, who cracked the top 30 to finish 25th, and Cole Janco '20, who ended up 32nd. Close behind was Paul Sheils '20 in 34th place.
On the women's side, Freshman Madeleine Dekko lead the way finishing just outside the top 15 in a tie for 16th position. Commenting on Dekko's first college top 20 result, Coach Levine noted, "her skiing was still well within herself so I am excited to see where she goes from here." Isabel Torres '19 was 31st, Gibson Donnan '19 was 38th, Clara Hathorne '20 was 40th and Makena Jones '18 ended up 46th. Paula Moltzan of the University of Vermont took the win.
The Ephs now look forward to build and carry momentum as they prepare to hit the home slopes at the Williams Carnival next weekend.
