Hust, Schoepke, Ferri lead alpine skiers at make-up meet

WAITSFIELD, Vt. -- Rosie Hust had the best collegiate finish of her young career by placing fourth for the Colby College women's alpine ski team in slalom racing at Sugarbush Ski Resort on Sunday.

Sunday's racing was a make-up for the postponed skiing at the Colby Carnival last weekend at Sugarloaf. 
 
Sandy Schoepke finished 12th for the Colby women, while Michael Ferri had a solid finish of 17th to lead the Colby men.
 
"In our first four carnival races we’ve seen top 15 results out of Max and Sandy, which is great, but we’ve also seen top 15 results out of four of our first years in Lily Hogan, Colbey Derwin, Matt Wilson, and now Rosie twice this weekend. They’re working really hard, and now we need them to bring it together on the same day."
 
Hust (pictured), who was 11th in slalom skiing at Smuggler's Notch on Saturday, was terrific on both runs. She was fifth overall after a 47.04 opening run and then had the third-fastest second run of 50.67 for a two-run total time of 1:37.71.
 
Hust and Schoepke helped the Colby women tie for fourth place with 78 points with University of New Hampshire and place ahead of Middlebury and Williams. Schoepke had runs of 48.99 and 51.55 for a total time of 1:40.54. Lily Hogan took  39th place for the Mules.
 
Ferri was 22nd after an opening run of 46.24, but moved to 17th place after a 13th-best 42.77 on his second run for a total time of 1:29.01.
 
Colbey Derwin was 19th for the Colby men in 1:29.14, Max Richard placed 26th with a 1:29.93, and Matt Calarco finished 30th in 1:32.89 to help the men take fifth place.
