STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO – Williams College senior captain Marc Talbott closed out his intercollegiate career with a 21st place finish in the slalom at the NCAA Championships. Skiing at night in a field of 32 skiers, Talbott showed consistency notching a 21st place finish on his first run with a time of 40.60, tying with the University of Utah's Huston Philp. On his second run, he posted a time of 43.74 tying once again with Philp on the run for the 20th fastest time. Talbott's combined time for his two runs was 1:24.34, tying him with Philp. Coach Kelsey Levine reflected on his last competition as an Eph : "Marc showed up and raced at Howelsen yesterday. He had one or two little bobbles that come from skiing the risky line. But he didn't leave anything on the hill. It was fun to watch Marc wrap up his college career under the lights here at Steamboat." 

Tanguy Nef of Dartmouth College won the men's race, while Amelia Smart of the University of Denver won the women's side. Commenting on another strong day for Eastern skiers, Coach Levine remarked, "It was an exciting race and I am happy the East had such a strong showing. 

Today is the last day of competition for the championships, with Nordic skier Braden Becker '19 racing the Men's 20 Km Freestyle at 9am EST.
