Carpenter Posts Solid Finish in 15k Classic at NCAA’s
Mar. 9: St. Lawrence University senior Nordic skier Caroline Carpenter wrapped up a memorable 2012 season on Friday in the 15k Classic at the 2012 NCAA Championships at Bohart Ranch in Bozeman, MT. Carpenter raced in a time of 57:32.4 to land in 25th place overall.
"Caroline gave a tremendous effort today," said St. Lawrence head coach Ethan Townsend. "After finishing yesterday's race, she started battling a stomach bug that nearly forced her with withdraw from the classic. Just a very impressive showing overall."
Carpenter had a monster senior season, recording her top-8 collegiate finishes including a career-best fifth place finish at the EISA Championships.
Amy Glen of the University of Vermont won the women's 15k Classic.
The 2012 NCAA Ski Championships wrap up tomorrow, Saturday, March 10 with the slalom race.
