A write up from Coach Bruce Diamond:
Congratulations to the Amazing Uconn Skiing Huskies Men's and Women's Teams for a successful regular season, which wrapped up Sunday with a two-day FIS-U MacConnell Division race at Proctor Academy in New Hampshire. Both teams finished the season in 4th place in the mighty MacD. It was a battle all year in the men's division and came down to the last race of the season with Babson, Castleton and the Huskies duking it out for 2nd, 3rd and 4th place by the narrowest of margins.The Men nailed down their second win of the season on Saturday and the girls finished fifth on Sunday. Both Lexi Skovran and Brian Chambers finished the season standings in second place. Lexie podiumed in every race but one, with 2 victories, 3 second places, and 4 thirds.Brian won 3 races this season. Lexi was joined by senior Kelsie Carlette (now competing for Team Ireland in the Alpine World Championships in St. Moritz) in being named the All MacD Team. For the guys, Brian Chambers and Griffin Struyk were named to the All MacD Team. Junior Sabina Spofford and Senior Alex Kresic received the MacD Sportsmanship Award.
Now it's on to the Eastern Regional Championships AT West Mountain this weekend for the opportunity for both teams to earn return berths to the USCSA Nationals in Mt. Bachelor, Bend, Oregon in March.
I'm very proud of this hard-charging, great group of kids. They are a special group with the best chemistry I've ever seen in a team. GO HUSKIES!!!!
