2007 NCAA SKIING FINAL TEAM STANDINGS  

    BARTLETT, N.H.-- The University of New Hampshire skiing team placed 11th at the 2007 NCAA Skiing Championships, which were hosted by the UNH Athletic Department at Attitash and Jackson XC.
    The winner of the national title was Dartmouth with 689 points, while the Wildcats, who had a full contingent of Alpine skiers, but no Nordic skiers, finished with 255.
    The highlight of the week for the Wildcats was the first-team All-American performances of EISA Rookie of the Year Veronique Archambault-Leger (Montreal, Quebec), who earned bronze medals in both the giant slalom and the slalom.
    On Thursday she recorded a combined two-run time of 2:31.72, not far behind event champion Sarah Schaelder, who finished with a clocking of 2:30.47. Taking the silver medal was Jenny Tank of Denver (2:31.35).
     Earlier today (Saturday), she recorded a two-event score of 1:46.14 for third, once again not far behind first-place, which was earned by Malin Hemmingsson 1:45.77.
    The Wildcats finished fourth among all teams in the Alpine totals with their 255 pionts as well. Devner led the way with 358 points.
     While no other UNH skiers earned first-team All-America honors, freshman Aileen Farrell (Ottawa, Ontario) placed an impressive seventh to earn second-team All-America honors with a time of 2:32.62 in the giant slalom. Freshman William Ford (Plymouth, N.H.) was the top finisher for the men in the giant slalom with a 23rd place finish.
    In the men's slalom, UNH was led by sohomore Sean McNamara (Honeoye Falls, N.Y.), who placed 12th overall, just missing All-America honors.
    The UNH women finished second to only Dartmouth in the women's slalom on Saturday with 82 points, as compared to 93 by the Big Green.
