Huskies Race Against Top Collegiate Skiers

Most Northwood School athletes dream of competing at the highest level of intercollegiate competition. For members of the ski team, they get to compete at that level while still at Northwood. On February 25 and 26, NYSEF hosted the NCAA Division I St. Lawrence University carnival at Whiteface, where Northwood ski team and alumni competed against the top collegiate ski racers in the east. 

The SLU Carnival was the first race of the season with racers from outside our region, and it was especially difficult because it was also Northwood’s athlete’s first chance this season to race against top racers 

Some of the East’s top ski programs, like University of Vermont, Boston College and University of New Hampshire traveled to Whiteface to race GS at the Carnival.

Northwood’s top athlete was Audrey Higgins-Lopez ‘21 who placed 5th. Other strong finishers were: Benni Caloro ‘21 (8th), Norah Dempsey ‘21 (13th), Jake Reynolds ‘19 (6th  & 12th) and Andrew Van Slyke ‘20 (15th).
