A St. Lawrence alumnus is the "fastest slalom telemark skier in the U.S.," according to a recent story in The Buffalo News, his hometown newspaper.

Andy Minier '91, of Hamburg, N.Y., is a member of the U.S. Telemark Ski Team, and at the U.S. Open in Montana this year, he finished second in all three of his races, to wind up second overall. The Buffalo News story states, "Not bad for a man in just his second year of international competition who didn't make the national team until he was already 33 years old."

A history major and Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity member while a student at St. Lawrence, Minier began back-country skiing during his University days.

Next up for Minier is are World Cup finals and the World Championships, being held in March, 2003, in Montana. He made the U.S. team last year, competing nine times in France, Norway and Slovenia. He ended the season with five top-15 World Cup finishes and a national slalom championship.
