Week 2: EISA Alpine Skiers of the Week
The EISA Alpine Skiers of the Week, following the UNH Carnival, are UVM's Laurence St-Germain and Dartmouth's Tanguy Nef.
St-Germain, in her second Carnival back following a two-year hiatus (if you can call World Cup competition a 'hiatus'), clobbered the women's GS field by almost two seconds. (Third place was almost 3.5 seconds back!) She finished the race in a combined time of 1:49.77.
Nef accomplished a similar feat, winning the men's SL race in a time of 1:43.66, well ahead of the competition. Where other athletes were grinding out the final straight, Nef seemed to be skiing comfortably on his way to the 'W.'
We have a break in action this weekend before heading to Stowe on February 1 for the UVM Carnival. See you there!
