Amidst some freezing temperatures (shoutout to -25 degree windchill) at Cochran’s this weekend, both Men’s and Women’s teams clinched the overall season 1st place title for the second year in a row!
On Saturday the top four racers from each team battled it out in a marathon dual paneled slalom. Represented by Emily Visnic, Casey Ross, Lucy Harrington, Caitlin Cosman, Julian Scherding, Chris Wigmore, Tom Licata, and Bennett Hadley, the Huskies were edged out by UVM and UNH teams, but both took home the win for the Thompson division.
With Sunday came the annual costume race and a colorful display of rediculous (and lack of any) clothing. Sporting an overwhelming amount of camoflage, the Northeastern team was almost impossible to spot. Fortunately the timing was still able to recognize the racers, and both teams took home an impressive win, the women by a 5 second margin and the men by a 10 second margin!
At the final award ceremony, both teams were awarded the overall season title cups for the second year in a row. The woman’s team set another impressive record this year by clinching the first ever undefeated season with 12 first place finishes!! Both Julain Scherding and Alice Anastasia took home the individual season 3rd place titles. Also, a huge congrats to Emily Visnic for her overall season first place finish for the second consecutive year!! Both teams now look on to regionals at West Mountain, NY to continue their push to get back to Nationals.
