            BOULDER, Colo. – A total of 279 student-athletes from 29 schools have been honored by the United States Collegiate Ski Coaches Association (USCSCA) on the National Collegiate All-Academic Ski Team.

            To qualify, student-athletes must have a cumulative 3.5 grade point average and have competed in one of three NCAA Regional Championships held last weekend. 

            Plymouth State University's representatives on the team are senior Charlotte Lemgart (Vaerloese, Denmark), juniors Danny Blake (Orchard Park, N.Y.), Bryce Eller (Mammoth Lakes, Calif.), Courtney Hayden (Stowe, Vt.), Amelia Rowland (Carrabassett Valley,Maine) and Hunter Stuercke (Cottonwood Heights, Utah), sophomore Freydis Einarsdottir (Gardabaer, Iceland), and freshmen Karl Kuus (Toronto, Ont.), Logan Martin (somewhere), Alli Price (Rutland, Vt.), and Maris Van Slyke (Lake Placid, N.Y.).

            The 29 colleges and universities come from one of three conferences nationally, the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA), the Central Collegiate Ski Association (CCSA) or the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association (RMISA). All institutions that sponsor varsity skiing as part of the NCAA are members in one of those three conferences.

            The NCAA Championships conclude the collegiate ski season on March 8-11, hosted by the University of New Hampshire. The alpine races are at Cannon Mountain (Mittersill) in Franconia and the Nordic events are at the Jackson Ski Touring Center in Jackson, N.H.
