After a series of crashes, the skiing team fell from first to fourth place in the ECSC MacConnell Division standings this past weekend.

On Saturday, Krista Consiglio ’11 came in third place in slalom with a time of 1:28.45. As a team, the Bears came in fourth place in slalom.

But on Sunday — though Kia Mosenthal ’12 came in first place in giant slalom with a mark of 1:07.01 — three other skiers crashed and could not complete the race, leaving the Bears in ninth place overall in giant slalom.

“In the big scheme of things,” said Head Coach Michael LeBlanc, this past weekend “is not that meaningful, since the top five advance to the postseason.”

“We’re one of the strongest teams in the division,” he added.
