Patterson and Johnson Win at Middlebury Carnival

STOWE, Vermont – Lack of snow forced EISA action back to Trapp Family Lodge for the third time this season, but that did not slow down UVM’s Caitlin Patterson nor Middlebury’s Patrick Johnson at the EISA Regional Championships as both won by impressive margins in the first day of racing at the Middlebury College Winter Carnival.

Patterson took top accolades in the women’s 5K freestyle, finishing in 13:40.7 and besting her teammate Lucy Garrec by sixteen seconds.  Sophie Caldwell led a pair of Dartmouth skiers in 14:01.2, while her teammate Annie Hart crossed the line in 14:18.6 for fourth.  Saint Lawrence University’s Caroline Carpenter broke up the UVM/Darmouth party as she rounded out the top five with a time of 14:26.9.

On the men’s side it was Johnson that once again crossed the line with the fastest time, finishing in 24:36.7 some 26 seconds quicker than UVM’s Franz Bernstein.  Sam Tarling came to the line in 25:12.8, which was good enough to take the third step on the podium.  Bates College’s Jordan Buetow again showed is freestyle skills as he skied to fourth, while the Big Green’s Gordon Vermeer rounded out the top five.

The Middlebury Winter Carnival continues tomorrow with 15/20K mass start classic races.

Hart and Bernstein Take Classic Crowns at Williams College Carnival

CRAFTSBURY, Vermont – Lack of snow forced the Williams College Winter Carnival to be moved to Northern Vermont and the trails of the Craftsbury Outdoor Center for a one-day, ten kilometer classic extravaganza.  As the ‘opening act’ to the final weekend of racing in the New England Junior National selection process the college skiers took to the granular tracks in this penultimate weekend of EISA racing.  As the klister wore it was Dartmouth’s Annie Hart in the women’s race and the University of Vermont’s Franz Bernstein in the men’s that would ski to the top of their respective podiums.

Hart’s time of 30:36.0 bested teammate Sophie Caldwell by thirteen seconds, while UVM’s Lucy Garrec and Caitlin Patterson followed in 31:12.9 and 31:14.2 for third and fourth respectively.  The Big Green’s Erika Flowers rounded out the top five in 31:30.3.

In the men’s race Bernstein crossed the line in 26.29.8, good enough to earn a thirteen second victory over Dartmouth’s Gordon Vermeer.  Williams College’s Dimitri Luthi found the form which had previously earned him repeat births to the NCCA Championships for the Ephs as he captured third in 26:53.9, while the Big Green’s Sam Tarling continued his impressive collegiate season finishing fourth in 27:13.9.  Middlebury College’s Benjamin Lustgarten rounded out the top five in 27:24.5.

EISA action continues next week as Middlebury College hosts the NCAA Regional Championships.

UVM Women Sweep, Packer Wins at Dartmouth Winter Carnival

STOWE, Vermont – The women of the University of Vermont ski team showed today that they were very happy that the Dartmouth Winter Carnival had been moved to the trails of Trapp Family Lodge, their home course, as they swept the podium.  Lucy Garrec led the way for the Catamounts with Amy Glen and Caitlin Patterson following close behind.  In the men’s race Dartmouth’s Eric Packer once again showed he knows how to close out a classical mass start as he took the top step on the podium.

When contested on the trails of Oak Hill in Hanover, NH the women’s race of the Dartmouth Winter Carnival is normally dominated by the home team, in some years even placing their entire squad in the top ten, but this year the snow was level and UVM capitalized during the 15 k classical mass start.  At the front Garrec narrowly edged her teammate Glen by just two-tenths of a second, the two crossing the finish line in 47:48.4 and 47:48.6 respectively, with Patterson just behind in 47:54.8.  Dartmouth’s Annie Hart followed for fourth with yet another UVM skier, Anja Gruber, crossing the line in fifth.

The men’s podium on the EISA circuit is starting to be as predictable as the women’s World Cup.  Today, Packer led the way, crossing the line in 59:17.4, 2.4 seconds faster than yesterday’s winner, Middlebury College’s Patrick Johnson.  Dartmouth’s Sam Tarling once again climbed a podium step, this time in third, finishing in a time of 59:20.2 for the Big Green.  Tarling was followed by teammate Gordon Vermeer, while Middlebury’s Benjamin Lustgarten took fifth place.

EISA action moves next Saturday to Craftsbury, Vermont as Williams College plays host to a one-day 10 k classic race for both genders.

Squirrelly Day at Dartmouth Carnival: Johnson and Caldwell Victorious

STOWE, Vermont – Lack of snow in the Hanover area forced Dartmouth to move their home carnival back to the trails of Trapp Family Lodge, where UVM hosted just last weekend.  In what is becoming a regular occurrence this season UVM and Dartmouth had a juggernaut at the top of the women’s results with Dartmouth’s Sophie Caldwell leading the way.  On the men’s side Middlebury’s Patrick Johnson continues his impressive season as he again found himself at the top of the podium.

In the women’s 5km freestyle race Caldwell crossed the line in 13:47.7 earning her a narrow victory over UVM’s duo of Caitlin Patterson (13:50.2) and Lucy Garrec (13:51.3).  Erika Flowers (Dartmouth) and Amy Glen (UVM) rounded out the top five.

In the men’s 10km it was Johnson who led the way in 25:50.1, with UVM’s Alex Howe grabbing the third step of the podium in 26:20.8.  Gordon Vermeer (Dartmouth) and Jordon Buetow (Bates) finished fourth and fifth respectively.

But the story of the day might have been Dartmouth’s rugged mountain man, Sam Tarling, who decided it would be fun and more challenging to wrestle a massive tree-dwelling rodent during the race.  Although victorious in combat, Tarling crossed the line in 26:15.0, good enough for second place… his less fortunate grappling opponent, a frisky squirrel, will continue to live in legend.

The nordic portion of the Dartmouth Winter Carnival continues on the trails of Trapp Family Lodge tomorrow with 15/20km classical mass start races.

Dartmouth and Williams Carnivals Forced to Venues with Artificial Snow

WILLIAMSTOWN, Massachusetts – It’s becoming the winter that never was throughout much of the country with New England being no exception.  The lack of snow has become a big headache for coaches and race organizers alike, but while many races across the region have been canceled, the host schools for two of the three remaining EISA carnivals have been forced to take some Tylenol and the third may have to as well.

This weekend’s EISA racing was scheduled to move to the historic trails of Oak Hill in Hanover, New Hampshire for the Dartmouth Winter Carnival.  Instead, the Big Green will host their event on the home course of their biggest rival, UVM, as Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT will host for the second straight week.

The following weekend’s races were slated for Prospect Mountain in Woodford, VT as Williams College plays host to EISA competition, but instead the Ephs will host a one-day 10km classic race for both men and women at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center in Craftsbury, VT, nearlt four hours from the Williams campus.  This race will take place on Saturday, February 18th, Williams’ head coach, Bud Fisher, told FasterSkier in an email this afternoon.

The final weekend of racing, the EISA Championships/NCAA East Regional, is scheduled as part of the Middlebury Winter Carnival.  While there are still a few weeks before these important races take place the “conditions look bleak,” Middlebury College’s head nordic ski coach, Andrew Gardner, told FasterSkier in an email.

The Middlebury coaches are considering their options.

“Currently, we’re investigating the viability of blowing a 2.5 kilometer loop with snowmaking from the small system we have at Rikert [Nordic Center] and trucked snow from the Snow Bowl. If that proves unfeasible, we’ve spoken to Trapps and Craftsbury –  ideally we’ll be at home,” said Gardner.

STOWE, Vermont – The second and final day of racing at the UVM Winter Carnival saw freestyle action take to the trails of Trapp Family Lodge today.  Caitlin Patterson (UVM), skiing on her home course and Middlebury College’s Patrick Johnson both earned the wins.

In the women’s race Patterson crossed the line in 28:16.9, eleven seconds quicker than Dartmouth’s Sophie Caldwell, while Erika Flowers (Dartmouth) claimed third in a time of 28:30.9.  UVM’s second and third skiers, Lucy Garrec and Amy Glen skied to fourth and fifth respectively.

In the men’s race Johnson (24:09.7) blazed to a 41.8 second victory over Dartmouth’s strongman, Sam Tarling, who crossed the line in 24:51.5 for the Big Green.  UVM’s Franz Bernstein (25:03.4) and Alex Howe (25:08.5) led the way for the home squad with third and fourth places respectively and Bates College’s Jordan Buetow followed in 25:10.8.

Caldwell and Johnson Victorious at UVM Winter Carnival

STOWE, Vermont – Action at the UVM Winter Carnival got started this morning on the scenic trails of Trapp Family Lodge.  In the women’s 5km classic race Dartmouth’s Sophie Caldwell once again found herself at the top of the results sheet.  In the men’s race Patrick Johnson, Middlebury College, earned a narrow victory on the 10km course.

UVM and Dartmouth once again flexed their muscles at the top of the women’s race as UVM put four skiers in the top six while Dartmouth added the other three skiers in the top seven.  Caldwell’s winning time of 15:48 was good enough to earn the seven second victory over UVM’s Caitlin Patterson, while Caldwell’s teammate Annie Hart claimed the third step on the podium with a time of 15:56.10.  Hart was followed by three UVM skiers as Amy Glen, Anja Gruber and Lucy Garrec took fourth through sixth respectively.  The Big Green’s Erika Flowers skied her way to 7th place while Middlebury College’s Annie Pokorny grabbed 8th.  UNH’s Tristan Ramey and Elizabeth Guiney rounded out the top ten.

In the men’s race Johnson’s time of 28:18.60 earned him a winning margin of just 0.30 seconds over Dartmouth’s Sam Tarling.  UVM’s Franz Bernstein followed in third with a time of 28:20.60.  After that it was more from Dartmouth as Eric Packer and Gordon Vermeer took fourth and fifth places respectively.

Caldwell and Packer Take Skate Mass Start Races at UNH Winter Carnival

JACKSON, New Hampshire – Action on the second day of the UNH Winter Carnival turned to a freestyle mass start with the women skiing 15km and the men 20km.   Yesterday’s weather brought almost everything to the trails of the Jackson Ski Touring Center; with rain, sleet, hail and snow throughout the sprint racing.  The groomers decided to stay off the trails until early this morning giving the water a chance to drain out of the snow.  The result was sugary snow, which never really got wet as the temperatures rose, but was soft in the woods.  As the racers took to the course small packs broke off the front in both the women’s and men’s races and when all was said and done Dartmouth’s Sophie Caldwell and Eric Packer won their respective races.

In the women’s race Dartmouth and UVM had a stronghold at the front as the two squads locked up the top nine places.  A pack of about six broke away early on and distanced themselves from the rest of the field.  When they finally crossed the line it was Caldwell (Dartmouth) who took the victory in a time of 41:32.2.  Just behind were UVM’s Caitlin Patterson in a time of 41:33.1 and Erika Flowers (Dartmouth) crossed in 41:40.9 for third place.  UVM’s Amy Glen and Lucy Garrec took fourth and fifth respectively to round out the top five.

In the men’s race the pace was pushed early by Middlebury College’s Patrick Johnson, who eventually finished fourth, but the pack was able to stay in contact with him.  The top four men opened up a margin on the rest of field, but at the end it was Packer who used a high-tempo field skate to take the victory down the finish lanes over Franz Bernstein (UVM). Packer finished the 20km in a time of 49:06.5, just four hundredths of a second ahead of Bernstein.  Yesterday’s race winner, Sam Tarling (Dartmouth) followed in third, while UVM’s Dylan Grald crossed the line after Johnson for fifth place.

EISA racing continues next weekend in Stowe, Vermont as UVM hosts the college circuit.

Caldwell and Tarling Take Sprint Crowns at UNH Carnival

JACKSON, New Hampshire – Dartmouth racers Sophie Caldwell and Sam Tarling won today’s EISA classic sprint races.  Above-freezing temperatures, sleet, and rain on top of fresh overnight snow made for an interesting mix of waxes and skis throughout the morning’s races.

Tarling was one of just several skiers to use skate skis throughout the day, and won with a decidedly strong double pole over second place finisher Skyler Davis (US Ski Team/SMS – first place in prologue) and teammate Eric Packer (8th in prologue).

Caldwell , who was the prologue winner, took the final race at the top of the steep hill situated midway through the course, and won by quite a margin over a field stacked with UVM and Dartmouth skiers.  Second place was Caitlin Patterson (UVM – 3rd place in prologue) and third place was Annie Hart (DAR – 2nd place in prologue).

Dartmouth took the top men’s and women’s team scores for the day, UVM in second.  Alpine races were cancelled due to weather.

EISA: Dartmouth cruises, Colby men impress at Midd

Dartmouth topped the field in the men’s and women’s 10K freestyle races today, with Erika Flowers and Eric Packer taking individual wins at Breadloaf.

In men’s racing, Dartmouth showed off their depth by stacking 4 men in the top 6, but Colby’s men were the talk of the race with their much-improved second place showing.  After finishing 5th or 6th as a team in the four previous carnivals, Colby found themselves just ahead of UVM and Middlebury today behind some stellar skiing from Wyatt Fereday (3rd), Jake Barton (10th) and Levin Zars (12th).

Women’s results see-sawed between Dartmouth  (Flowers (1st), Rosie Brennan (3rd) and Steph Crocker (5th)) and UVM (Lucy Garrec (2nd), Caitlin Curran (4th) and Amy Glen (6th), with the Big Green prevailing to take the women’s team score.   The only non-Dartmouth/UVM top 10 finishers were Middlebury’s Corrine Prevot (9th) and UNH’s Elizabeth Guiney (10th).

EISA racing action returns tomorrow with sprint relays.

A Double Patterson Day as Men’s EISA Race is all UVM and Dartmouth

Scott Patterson (UVM) wasn’t going to be outdone by his sister for a second day in a row – and while he couldn’t top her victory in the women’s race, he could match, skiing to a three second win over Dartmouth’s Sam Tarling in the 10km freestyle event at the UVM Carnival.

Tarling’s teammate Nils Koons finished third another 2.5 seconds back. And while it is hard to imagine topping the combined UVM/Dartmouth performance put on by the women, the men did just that.

Women from the two schools claimed the top five spots and put six in the top ten. The UVM and Dartmouth men however filled the top nine. Middlebury’s Chase Marston finished tenth.

As the race was also an open Eastern Cup competition, several non-collegiate skiers cracked the top ten in the overall results, led by Tim Reynolds and Patrick O’Brien, both of the Craftsbury Green Racing Project, in seventh and eighth respectively, and Russel Currier (MWSC) in ninth. These skiers obviously do not count in the college results.

Results are still unofficial.
