Women's Nordic Collects Fourth-Place Finish In Freestyle Sprint

WILSON, Wyo. -- Earning her second top 10 finish of the 2019 United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association National Championships in the freestyle ski, Megan Greene led the Castleton University women's nordic team on Wednesday afternoon at the Trail Creek Nordic Center.

Greene started out particularly strong as she placed third through the qualifying round of the freestyle ski, tallying a time that was less than three seconds behind the leader. Emily Greene and Molly O'Callaghan were the next two Spartans as they both crossed inside the top 25 in the openers. All three of the aforementioned skiers crossed inside the top 25 in the final result as well with Megan Greene placing seventh, while Emily Green and O'Callaghan recorded 22nd and 23rd places, respectively.

Adi Toof and Emily Cromie went back-and-forth through the two rounds, finishing in 28th and 29th, respectively, in qualifying. Following the title round and final results, Cromie and Toof switched places but remained linked with 25th and 26th places, in order. Kaylyn Crompton moved up from 40th to 30th between the rounds, marking a strong improvement.

The Spartans placed fourth as a team with 52 team points. St. Olaf College (12) and Clarkson University (13) were neck-and-neck in the top two spots, while the University of Wyoming rounded out the money with 30 points.

Women's nordic will return to action at 10 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time on Friday following an off day for the 15-kilometer freestyle.
