Men's Nordic Skiing Finishes Competition At U.S. Nationals

CRAFTSBURY, Vt. – The Castleton University men's nordic ski team finished competition at the U.S. Cross-Country Ski Championships sponsored by the United States Ski and Snowboard Association at Craftsbury Outdoor Center on Sunday and Tuesday afternoons.

During the fifth day of competition at the nationals event, Andrew Doherty returned to action for Castleton in the under-20 10-kilometer skate race. In a field of nearly 200 racers – the largest size group for an under-20 race in U.S. Nationals history – Doherty placed just outside the top 50.

Doherty's teammate, John Henry Paluszek raced on Tuesday, the final day of competition at U.S. Nationals in the skate sprint race. The Farmington, N.H. native placed in 55th out of more than 100 competitors. In his age group – the under-23 section – Paluszek placed in 26th.

The men's nordic ski team will have about a week off before returning to action in the Clarkson University Invitational at Mt. Van Hoevenberg in Lake Placid, N.Y. on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 19-20.
