BARTLET and JACKSON, N.H. – Led by first-place finishes in six of eight disciplines and a team-high score in each of those six events, the Dartmouth College ski team captured first place with 784 points in the University of New Hampshire Winter Carnival that was held Jan. 26-27. The Nordic events were held at Jackson XC while Attitash was the alpine venue.
    Dartmouth was followed by the University of Vermont (701 points), Middlebury College (668) and University of New Hampshire (608), which received first-place finishes from Veronique Archambault-Leger in both the women’s giant slalom and slalom competition.
    DC, which led the carnival with 387 points after the first day of competition, recorded the top team score in the slalom (96 points), women’s 10K classic (101) and men’s 10K classic (103) on Saturday as well as the second-highest mark – to UNH’s 98 points – in the women’s slalom (97).
    The Big Green’s David Chodounsky, who placed second in the men’s giant slalom on Friday, took top honors in Saturday’s slalom with a time of 1:36.37. Evan Weiss, who bested Chodousnky in the giant slalom, finished as runner-up behind his teammate in the slalom at 1:27.64.
    Dartmouth also swept the top two places in Saturday’s 10K men’s classic race. Michael Sinnott, like UNH’s Archambault-Leger, was a double winner at the UNH Winter Carnival. He followed Friday’s victory in the 10K free by winning the 10K classic with a time of 29:37.2 to easily outdistance teammate Benjamin True, who was timed in 20:51.7.
    In the women’s 10K classic, Dartmouth’s Elsa Sargent completed the course in 35:07.6, which was 22.2 seconds faster than her nearest competitor, Carina Hamel of Vermont.
    The EISA carnival season continues next weekend at the University of Vermont.
