End of Year Team Dinner

Last night we brought the team together at Flatbread Pizza Co. to celebrate the season, present end of the year awards and thank some of the important people that help make what we do as a Middlebury Ski Team possible.

A special thanks went out to the staff at the Snow Bowl, including Peter Mackey, Ron Quesnel and John Nuceeder.  Bob Prasch attended and we thanked him for his role as our faculty affiliate.

Andrew and Stever presented the following awards

Senior Awards to Hig Roberts, Liam Mulhern and Nick Bailey

MVP – Yina Moe-Lange and Hig Roberts

Bubba Kenney Award-Christoph Niederhauser

Randi Stromstad Award- Elle Gilbert

The team also presented gifts to the captains as well as a plaque to officially name and designate “Hig’s Wall” in the team room.

After The Clean

Spring Cleaning

It’s been at LEAST 5 years since we put a serious hum on the ski room. Yesterday, the Alpine and Nordic teams got together on their hands and knees and scrubbed that ski room with more intensity than a fall workout. If team members aren’t in class today it’s because they inhaled so much wax dust and grime that they had to get it surgically removed today in order to breathe again.

Here’s to hoping these knuckleheads can keep it looking more like the “after” picture for more than just three days!

Thanks everyone for your help – the room looks unreal!

Winning your last Carnival Race on your home hill…. Priceless

Congratulations to Senior Hig Roberts for the win yesterday at the EISA Championships/NCAA Regional GS at the Middlebury Carnival.

Congratulations to the entire alpine team for a great season of racing and training.  We have more training and racing left… but it is worth noting what a great group of guys an girls we have on the team.  It was evident how tight this group is when it was clear that Hig had won.  What a celebration in the finish coral!  What a great day to be a Panther.

Congrats to Elle Gilbert for her best career finish in fourth.  And Nick Bailey posted a 5th in the slalom which also was his best college career result.
