Skiing Takes Home Top 10 Finish at Dartmouth Carnival

By Rena Simkowitz, Crimson Staff Writer

Skiing at the Dartmouth Carnival in Hanover, N.H., the Harvard Ski Team braved the snow and tough competition to take 10th overall out of the 15 teams competing in the weekend’s races.

At the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, the fresh, hard-packed snow and cool temperatures made for ideal conditions for nordic skiing.

Led by senior captain Rachel Hampton and sophomores Hannah Hardenbergh and Nina Armstrong, the Crimson finished the 3X5K FS relay with a combined time of 44:05.4 to take home seventh place overall.

“We weren't able to achieve the results we were looking for,” junior Kelly Steeves said. “Dartmouth is a relatively flat hill and unforgiving hill that leaves no room for mistakes.”

A second trio, Junior Charlotte Cole, sophomore Lily Koffman and freshman Tegan Thorley, also had a strong showing in the 3X5K FS relay, placing 18th with a combined time of 46:29.2.

For the men, seniors Ian Meyer and Devlin Shea, along with freshman William Rhatigan, skied to an impressive eighth-place finish in the men's 3X5K FS relay with a time of 37:57.4.

Also in the 3X5K FS relay, juniors Connor Green and Haakon Sigurslid and freshman Mackinley Fitzpatrick finished 18th overall with a total time of 39:14.3.

Individually for the women, Hampton led the way in the 5K classic as well, taking home 15th place with a time of 16:14.0. Hampton was followed by Hardenbergh in 32nd, Thorley in 34th, and Armstrong in 35th.

In the men’s 10L classic, Meyer finished first of the Harvard skiers and 39th overall. Also scoring in the event were Rhatigan in 46th place and Fitzpatrick in 52nd.

For the alpine events at the Dartmouth Skiway, Steeves finished 47th overall in the giant slalom against a tough field of racers.

The Crimson will compete next weekend in the last EISA Carnival of the year in Middlebury, Vermont.

"It was a challenging weekend for the entire team,” Steves said. “We skied well. However, there was a very high level of competition at the race. We are all looking forward to the race at Middlebury next weekend where we have had success previously.”
