Haskell earns fourth All-American honor; Boardman strong 14th

FRANCONIA, N.H. -- Colby College's Mardi Haskell earned her fourth All-American honor with a great second run and then a little luck in the giant slalom at the NCAA Division I Skiing Championships on Wednesday at Cannon Mountain.

Haskell finished in a tie for 10th place to get on the second team. The top five skiers are on the first team and six to 10 are on the second team.
 

Michael Boardman (pictured right) also had a big day in the men's giant slalom, finishing 14th overall. He and Haskell helped the Mules close out the first day of competition in 10th place (alpine and Nordic combined) with 37.5 points. The two will ski in the slalom on Friday.

Haskell was in 19th place after her first run of 1 minute, 11.45 seconds. A fourth All-American honor seemed impossible at that point.
 

"Mardi really had to buckle down and ski more aggressively and risky on the second run," Colby head coach Danny Noyes said. "To move from 19 to All-American was certainly the focus and goal from the first run position, but to execute and have it come down to the hundredth was exciting."

Haskell put herself in a good position with the ninth-best second run at 1:08.63. She would need some luck, though, to finish in the top 10 with her total time of 2:20.08.

Everything worked out after Haskell's second run. A number of skiers, slightly ahead of her after the first run, struggled on their second run. Three of the top five skiers after the first run had a did not finish (DNF) on their second trip. Haskell was in 10th place when first run leader Paula Moltzan of University of Vermont was the final skier of the day. Moltzan was far down the hill when her ski struck a gate and came off, giving her a DNF and keeping Haskell at the 10th spot.
 

Haskell (pictured right) now has two 10th-place finishes in the giant slalom at the NCAA meet. She also has two fourth-place finishes in the slalom. 

While only 25 of 34 skiers finished the women's race, Boardman was one of 30 skiers to finish the men's event. He had an aggressive first run of 1:08.93 to place 13th. 
 

"The conditions were very challenging both runs, with hard ice underneath a thin layer of wet snow. Michael stepped in there and truly skied to his potential," Noyes said. "The first run is more indicative of what he can do, sitting 1.3 out, but to step back into the gate for the second run and battle all the nerves, hopes, and expectations was a stellar example of how to focus and execute. To be 14th in the nation is an amazing accomplishment." 

Boardman's second run of 1:07.13 gave him a two-run total time of 2:16.06. A two-time NCAA participant, Boardman had his best collegiate NCAA finish Wednesday. Boardman was fifth among Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association skiers, second among skiers from a Division III school, and was the fifth U.S. born competitor."
