COMPLETE RESULTS

Newry, ME -- The Williams Alpine Ski Team raced giant slalom today in Sunday River, ME on the first day of the NCAA East Region Championship/Bates Carnival. During the van ride to the mountain Sunday River native Will Kannegieser exclaimed: "I've never seen so much snow in the snowbanks here before!".  Kannegieser's words set the tone for a GS day where soft snow gave way to a bumpy track and inconsistent snow conditions.  The Ephs had a tough day today but fought to get down the course. 

On the womens side senior Hannah Hunsaker led the team with a 31st place finish, exhibiting strong, consistent skiing.  Following Hunsaker was freshman Nadine Levey in 35th, sophomore Maddie Dekko in 36th and senior Gibson Donnan in 39th.  On the mens side senior captain Stockton Troyer led the team in 42nd and senior Bryan Bailey finished 48th.

Student assistant coach Eli Pier commented: "The team showed serious mental toughness in soft snow conditions that are unusual to the east coast.  We are all looking forward to the slalom tomorrow and are excited to celebrate the last race with our seniors!"

The nordic and alpine ski teams sit in 8th place overall today, UVM is in the lead. 

The Williams Alpine Team will race slalom tomorrow at Sunday River on day two of the NCAA East Region Championship/Bates Carnival.
