UVM Wins 11th Straight Carnival

Posted: Updated:
STOWE, Vt. -

Vermont's Jorgen Grav and Linda Danvind Malm swept the both races at the UVM Nordic Carnival this weekend at Trapp Family Lodge to help the Catamounts capture their 11th straight EISA Carnival victory.

In the classic sprint races on Saturday, Grav took the top spot on the men's podium with a time of 3:06.3, while Danvind Malm posted a winning time of 3:48.3 in the women's race.

In Sunday's freestyle race, the UVM men went 1-3. Grav posted his second straight victory with a time of 25:33.5, while Rogan Brown placed third (26:04.1).

The Catamount women went 1-2 in the freestyle race.  Danvind Malm crossed the finish line in a winning time of 14:21.3, while Gruber was just behind at 2:30.0 for second place.

The Catamounts were not at full strength as six UVM skiers are in Italy competing for the United States in the World Junior and U23 Championships.

The Dartmouth Nordic team was also missing from the races on Sunday.  The Big Green returned to campus in Hanover, N.H. after receiving news that a teammate passed away at a race at Craftsbury, Vt., unrelated to the UVM Carnival.

The next stop on the EISA Circuit is the Dartmouth Carnival on February 7-8.  The Nordic races will be held at Craftsbury, Vt., while the alpine races will be at the Dartmouth Skiway.
