By Rena Simkowitz, Crimson Staff Writer

The Harvard skiing team competed this weekend in the third of five carnivals on the Eastern Intercollegiate Skiing Association circuit. On Friday, the team traveled to Stowe, Vt. for the University of Vermont Carnival where it competed against a strong field of skiers to finish 10th out of the 16 EISA teams. Dartmouth won both the alpine event and the overall.

In the Nordic events, senior Rachel Hampton led the way with a top-10 finish in the women’s 10K and 36th place overall in the women’s FS sprint. Freshman Tegan Thorley and sophomore Nina Armstrong also posted two strong finishes apiece.

Thorley was the top Harvard woman in the sprint, coming in 34th just ahead of Hampton, and Armstrong was right behind them in 38th. In the 10K, sophomore Hannah Hardenbergh finished in 30th, just ahead of Thorley in 31st and Armstrong in 37th.

On the men’s side, seniors Devlin Shea and Ian Meyer were the team’s top finishers. Shea led the way in the FS sprint, finishing with a time of 3:22.58 to take 39th place. Meyer was the first Harvard skier to cross the finish line in the 10K, taking 27th place with a time of 31:50.2.

Other notable finishes included freshman William Rhatigan and junior Connor Green who both recorded solid races in both events. In the sprint, Rhatigan finished in 57th and Green 61st. In the 10K, Rhatigan came in 55th and Green finished just after in 58th.

In Friday’s women’s slalom race, junior Kelly Steeves led the alpine team with a 28th place finish and freshman Courtney Clark came in 43rd. The men’s alpine team had its strongest showing of the season so far with junior Pieter Weemaes finishing in 45th followed by freshman Carter Kendig and freshman Robert Dorfman in 46th and 47th, respectively.

“Although competition was particularly tough, the team came through in high spirits,” said men’s alpine captain James Stevenson. “Thrilled with the pace at which we're finding our stride."

Battling snow and low visibility, Steeves was also the leader in the giant slalom race finishing in 34th, followed closely by Clark in 42nd.

“I'm always really impressed with our team's ability to keep their cool when the competition is tough. In particular, Kelly Steeves continues to be dependable,” said women’s alpine captain Katie Gibson. “A lot of the team is right on the cusp of great race performances and I'm excited to see their hard training paying off.”
