STOWE, Vt. -- Colby College first-year Rosie Hust earned her second collegiate finish in the top five of an Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA) race by placing fifth in the slalom on Saturday at the University of Vermont Carnival.
Hust had placed fourth in the slalom in a make-up meet at Sugarbush Ski Resort as part of the Colby Carnival.
"Rosie has made a great transition to college skiing and the hills and snow in the east. She has worked really hard to put herself in position to let it rip starting last week with her fourth in the Colby slalom," Colby head coach Danny Noyes said.
Hust had runs of 52.88 and 59.50 for a two-run total time of 1:52.38. She was first among skiers from Division III schools.
"This week was impressive with how aggressive she was right out of the gate," Noyes said. "First run was good, but second run she was able to apply a good inspection and report plan to her run. Moving forward, to get onto the podium she’ll have to combine it for both runs."
The Colby women finished in a tie for fourth place with 86 points with Middlebury College.
Sandy Schoepke had another fine day by placing 13th with a two-run total time of 1:54.97. Lily Hogan (pictured) gave the Mules three finishes in the top 25 by placing 25th in 1:58.60.
The Colby men had a number of skiers with a did not finish and placed 10th. Ellis Grubman placed 30th for the Mules with a 1:57.04 over his two runs.
