Panther freshman takes third in Slalom at UVM Carnival
STOWE, Vt. – It was another outstanding day on the mountain for Plymouth State University freshman Freydis Halla Einarsdottir (Gardabaer, Iceland) on Saturday as she captured third place in the women's slalom portion of the University of Vermont Winter Carnival at Stowe Mountain.
Einarsdottir posted her season-best third place overall in the two runs combined in the women's field of 70 skiers. It is her third top five finish in three slalom events this season, and she posted her first top 10 finish of the season in the GS on Friday.
Junior Charlotte Lemgart (Vaerloese, Denmark) posted a strong finish for PSU as well, taking 19th place in the women's slalom.
PSU's Freydis Halla Einarsdottir finished third in Saturday's slalom.
The Panther men struggled all day and did not post a team score. Four Panthers fell on the first run and did not finish, and two others took a spill on the second run.
Dartmouth took the women's team scoring with 136 points, followed by Colby College (94) and Bates College (86). PSU was sixth with 69, ahead of seventh-place Middlebury College (66) and behind fifth-place Williams College. Host UVM won the men's scoring with 138 points, ahead of runner-up Dartmouth (111) and third-place Saint Michael's College (92).
The Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA) circuit has the week off next weekend, and will compete again on Feb. 12-13 at the Dartmouth Carnival at the Dartmouth Skiway.
