JACKSON Hole, Wyo. – For the fourth time in program history, the Castleton University men's alpine ski team has finished on the podium in the overall standings at the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association National Championships.
Castleton raced its way to a fourth-place finish in the giant slalom on Wednesday, before placing second in the slalom on Friday to clinch the third-place spot on the podium for the second straight year. The Spartans rounded out the week with a third-place finish in the dual slalom on Saturday.
The Spartans reeled in six total All-America accolades, headlined by Logan Mackie, who was a three-time All-America honoree. The rookie finished in the top-15 in both the giant slalom and the slalom to earn the honors, while capping the week with combined All-America recognition for finishing in the top-15 across both races.
