2014 Outlook

The Dartmouth Ski Team features an accomplished and experienced roster for the 2013-2014 season. Nine members of last year’s NCAA Championships team are returning, including All-Americans Mary O'Connell, Silas Talbot, Lizzie Kistler, Annie Hart, and Sara Kikut. Patrick Caldwell, Emily Hannah, and Dylan Brooks headline a promising incoming class that is looking to contribute this winter for the Big Green. The alpine squad will start the season in Colorado, tuning up for the start of the collegiate season at Nor-Am races while the cross country team will go to training camp in British Columbia before the US Nationals in Utah just after New Year's. Carnival action starts at UVM on January 10 for alpine, and at Colby on January 17 for cross country. Read below to catch up on highlights from last year and learn who is poised to make an impact this winter.

Team Outlook

The women's Nordic team is excited about the prospects for 2014. We have had a great season of training and are itching to hit the snow. We will use our long holiday break for some quality skiing at Silver Star, BC, and then head to the U.S. Cross Country National Championships in Utah at the end of December. The racing season will be under way in early December and we are optimistic that all the hard work will pay off with some top results this season. Leading the way will be Captains Annie Hart '14 and Isabel Caldwell '14. Returning and hoping to build on their first year results are Mary O'Connell '16 and Corey Stock '16. Carly Wynn '15 is also solidly in the mix. Joining the group this year is transfer Emily Hannah '16, and we are expecting great things from her. Backing up this team of stand-out women, are twelve others hoping to prove that they belong in that mix as well. Look out!

Leading the team this year will be sub-20 point skiers, captain Ben Morse ‘14 and Chilean National member Martin Anguita ‘16.  Providing support  will be top all-around skier and NCAA team member Hunter Black ‘15.  The rest of the team is packed in close behind and all will be challenging for top Carnival results.  Adding strength to our strong slalom contingent will be first year Dylan Brooks and outstanding GS skier from the west. Co-Captain Mathieu Bertrand ‘14, Jake Perkins ‘14, Dylan Fisher McCarney ‘15, Sam Macomber ‘16 and first years Thomas Woolson and Prescott McLaughlin will be right there looking to make their mark on the EISA Carnival circuit.
