JACKSON, NH – Thank you New Hampshire and University of New Hampshire for hosting the second carnival of the race season. The WILLIAMS NORDIC team has enjoyed their stay, are proud of their results but are very much looking forward to improving as the season continues to fly by.
Today was the one and only sprint the EISA hosts all season so specialty sprinters were able to flaunt their feathers. Among these self-proclaimed sprinters is junior Dylan Syben who ended his day in 15th place as the top scorer for the WILLIAMS NORDIC men's team. Right behind Syben were teammates freshman Isaac Freitas-Eagan in 22nd, sophomore Emil Graf in 24th, sophomore Andrew Hull in 29th and senior captain Nick Gardner in 30th. This resulted in 5 men in the top 30 and the men's team in 6th place with 69 points.
After the men set the tone for sprint day, the WILLIAMS NORDIC women embarked on their approximately 3 minute course. Senior captain Sonya Jampel lead the Ephwomen once again placing in a strong 11th place. Closely following Jampel was teammate junior Ingrid Thyr in 25th. The Ephwomen ended their day in 5th place with 69 points as well.
Usually it is good luck for the men's and women's teams to score the same points. The WILLIAMS NORDIC team looks forward to the first weekend of February when they will compete in Stowe, VT for the UVM carnival. Perhaps this next carnival the WILLIAMS NORDIC team will once again score the same number of points but in the 200s instead.
