CARRABASSETT VALLEY, ME - The University of Massachusetts women's ski team placed third out of 18 teams, while the men tied for fourth out of 19 teams at the USCSA Nationals held over the past four days on Sugarloaf Mountain in Carrabassett, Maine. Individually, each team also had a first team all-american selection.

Leading the way for the women was freshman Ashley Maxfield (Craftsbury Common, Vt.) who placed third out of 87 competitors in the Giant Slalom with a two-run time of 2:17.26. She was the top collegiate finisher in the race, and posted the best finish of anyone in the Eastern Ski Conference. For her efforts she was named a first team All-America selection in the alpine women's Giant Slalom.

Also posting impressive times for the women's team was sophomore Shaleighne Collins (North Reading, Mass.) was placed 22 out of 57 competitors in the Slalom with a two-run time of 1:52.00. In the Giant Slalom she placed 21 out of 87 competitors with a two-run time of 2:28.12. Those efforts were good enough for Collins to place the 18th best combined female showing of the weekend. Additionally, she was named a second team All-America selection in the women's individual combined events.

Rounding out the scoring for the women's was freshman Jen Barranger (Lanesboro, Mass.) who placed 33 in the Giant Slalom with a two-run time of 2:30.98 and 36 in the Slalom with a two-run time of 2:01.82.
