            LYME, N.H. – Sophomores Karl Kuus (Toronto, Ont.) and Allison Price (Rutland, Vt.) were once again the top finishers for the Plymouth State University alpine ski teams as they competed in the slalom to wrap up the Dartmouth Carnival at the Dartmouth Skiway on Saturday.

            Kuus finished 13th out of 56 racers on the men's side, posting a strong first run time of 52.49, good enough for ninth fastest, and a second run of 53.26. Freshman Cooper Yates (Richmond, B.C.) posted a top-30 finish with runs of 53.07 and 53.53.

            Price was the only Panther on the women's side to complete both of her runs with times of 59.22 and 1:05.83, earning her a 55th place overall finish.

            Dartmouth College won the women's competition with 122 points while the University of Vermont finished one point back for second place. Middlebury College rounded out the top three with 98 points. Plymouth State finished 13th with 7 points.

            On the men's side, UVM secured the win with 129 points while Dartmouth (123) and Saint Michael's College (86) made up the rest of the top three. Plymouth State finished seventh with 62 points, only one behind Williams College.

            Plymouth State returns to action next weekend at the Williams College Carnival at Jiminy Peak/Berkshire East Mountain Resort in the final tune-up before EISA Championships. Giant slalom races will take place on Friday (Feb. 16), with slalom on Saturday (Feb. 17).
