Armstrong in Top-10 Again, Cole With Career Performances at St. Michael's

HUNTINGTON, Vermont – Junior Nina Armstrong recorded a collegiate-best seventh place (13:48.87) in the five-kilometer classic-style race, while senior Charlotte Cole had a pair of career-best performances at the St. Michael's Carnival. Sophomores William Rhatigan (15K) and Mackinley FitzPatrick (10K) led the Crimson men.

Cole cracked the top 40 for the first time as a Crimson skier, doing so twice over the weekend. The native of Chestnut Hill, Mass. was clocked at 14:17.3 (19th) in the 5K classic on Saturday. Cole then carried the confidence over to Sunday's 10K freestyle, where she placed 28th in 31:03.4.

Sophomore Tegan Thorley led the women in the long-distance event, placing 25th in 30:52.8. The Londonderry, Vt., product also took 25th in the 5K classic race in 14:23.58. Thorley's two top-25 finishes were the second and third of her career.

Hannah Hardenbergh was the third scorer for Harvard in the 5K, whereas Armstrong rounded out the score sheet in the 10K. Armstrong's top-10 finish in the sprint was the third of her collegiate career. The Lake Placid, N.Y. native previously finished seventh at the St. Lawrence Carnival Classic Sprint last season and took ninth at the Colby Carnival to open the season.

Rhatigan cracked the top-25 for the second time in his collegiate career. The skier from Newton, Mass., paced the Crimson at 40:32.7 to take 23rd in his first attempt at the 15-kilometer freestyle. FitzPatrick led Harvard in the 10-km sprint, achieving his best placing and time at the distance (46th – 26:39.9).

The Harvard alpine skiers will complete their portion of the St. Michael's Carnival in Sugarloaf, Maine Jan. 20-21. The nordic skiers are off from competition next weekend.
