Successful First Carnival Race Hosted by Saint Lawrence University


LAKE PLACID, NY – While temperatures were low, spirits were high after the first carnival race of the season in Lake Placid, NY hosted by Saint Lawrence University. After the race was pushed back an hour, due to freezing temperatures, the Ephwomen embarked on their speedy 5k individual start skate race. Before her race, freshman Jenae Rassmusen made a comment that "5ks are [her] favorite: painful and to the point."

Senior captain Sonya Jampel led the women's team, finishing in a strong 25th place, followed by sophomore Magdalen York only 15 seconds back in 29th place. The Ephwomen ended the day in 7th place as a team, only 37 points behind the Dartmouth women who ended in 3rd place overall. The women's team is proud of their results but feel confident they "can and will ski faster as the season progresses."

Head coach Jason Lemiuex shared his thoughts on the women's race, stating "the Ladies 5k is a challenging course and it was a great way to start the carnival season. We had some personal bests today, which is excellent, but the team is fired up and hungry for more tomorrow."

Starting later in the day as the sun and temperature rose together, the men embarked on their 10k individual start skate race. Freshman Isaac Frietas-Eagan left the crowd flabbergasted after placing 15th overall, leading the Williams men's team to 6th place overall, only 53 points behind the Dartmouth men's team who ended their day in 3rd place. Senior captain Nick Gardner placed 22nd as the Williams' men's second finisher, closely followed by freshman Woody Martineau in 26th. Looks like the freshmen men are stepping up their game and rising to the occasion of college ski racing!

The WILLIAMS NORDIC team looks forward to tomorrow, where they will compete in a 10k individual start classic race at the same venue in Lake Placid, NY.
