Vermont Ski Team in Second Place After First Day of EISA Championships

Results: http://www.eisaskiing.org/BART/Results06/mc06.htm

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. Ė Vermont sophomore Greg Hardy (Stratton, Vt.) won the 
giant slalom to claim his sixth first place finish of the season and 
three members of the womenís alpine team ranked in the top-four of the 
GS to put the Catamounts in second place after day one of the EISA 
Championships at the Middlebury Snow Bowl. Middlebury ended the day in 
first place with 447 team points, less than four points ahead of 
Vermontís 443.5 points.

ďAs an overall team we got away with an okay effort today,Ē Director of 
Skiing and head alpine coach Bill Reichelt said. ďOur menís alpine team 
really stepped up and our womenís alpine team was steady as usual but 
we struggled in the Nordic. The good news is we are only three and a 
half points down and mentally that should give us confidence for 
tomorrow.Ē

Because of the conditions the menís slalom was moved back a day and 
Hardy cruised to a win in the GS finishing more than one second ahead 
of the second best finisher. Sophomore Zac Brown (Sun Valley, Idaho) 
continued to emerge with one of his best races of the season to grab a 
third place and senior Paul Epstein (Carlisle, Mass.) finished seventh. 
Freshman Ethan Korpi (South Londonderry, Vt.) finished 11th and senior 
Hunter Kaltsas (Stratton Mountain, Vt.) followed him in 12th place.

In the womenís giant slalom Vermont took three of the top four spots 
led by senior Amy Cochran (Keene, N.H.) who had her best race of the 
season finishing in second place. Sophomore Jilyne McDonald (Bellevue, 
Wash.) took third in the GS and senior Jamie Kingsbury (Waitsfield, 
Vt.) was fourth.

In the Nordic events at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center in Craftsbury, 
Common, Vt., senior captain Kate Crawford (Hawley, Mass.) was the top 
Vermont finisher taking sixth place in the womenís 15k freestyle. 
Junior Emilia DeMarchis (Burlington, Vt.) finished in eighth place in 
the 15k freestyle and senior Anja Jokela (Shelburne, Vt.) was 14th.

The Catamounts had four top-20 finishers in the menís 20k freestyle 
with senior Anders Osthus (Duluth, Minn.) ranking highest taking 
seventh place. Freshman Chris Ziegler (Detroit Lakes, Minn.) finished 
in 11th place posting his best finish of the season. Freshman Anders 
Folleras (Lillehammer, Norway) followed up with an 18th place finish 
and freshman Juergen Uhl (Muhlenbach, Germany) was one spot behind him 
in 19th place.

Vermont tries to claim its second straight EISA Championship on 
Saturday with the womenís slalom first run set to begin at 9:30am and 
the menís slalom to follow. Second runs of the slalom are scheduled to 
start at 12:30pm. Saturdayís Nordic events start with the menís 10k 
classical at 10:00am and the womenís 5k classical follows at 11:15am.
