Jan. 15, 2007
North Conway, N.H. - The men's and women's ski teams both recorded fourth place finishes at the UConn Carnival in North Conway, New Hampshire. The events were pushed up a day due to the poor weather conditions. On January 11, the men's team finished in fourth place in the Giant Slalom while the women finished in third. In the Slalom, the Minutemen finished in third while the Minutewomen finished in sixth.
Junior Jason Small got the Minutemen off to a good start with a second place finish in the Giant Slalom, recording a total time of 2:07.88. He was followed by James Green in 13th (2:12.50), Matthew Small in 14th (1:06.58), Andrew Hawes in 17th (2:13.78), and Travis Hopkins in 35th (2:20.11).
Jason Small finished in third on the men's side in the Slalom with a time of 1:26.19. He was followed by senior Rush Hawkins in second (1:26.82), Hawes in 12th (1:32.44), Hopkins in 13th (1:32.49), Alex Zahoruiko in 16th (1:33.10), Matthew Small in 45th (1:54.91), and Paul Lewenberg in 55th (2:14.68).
When all was said and done, the Minutemen found themselves with a solid fourth place finish. They trail only Boston College, Plymouth State, and Colby Sawyer. They look to move up in the ECSC MacConnell Division Standings next weekend when they travel to ski in the Plymouth State Carnival.
