NEWRY, Maine – University of Maine at Farmington sophomore Lindsey Jacques and junior Alex Rose each took second place at the USCSA Thompson Division giant slalom event on Sunday at the Sunday River ski resort.
Jacques turned in a combined time of 2:56.77, finishing just over a second off the winning pace set by Chelsea Stevens from Tufts.
In the men's race, Rose posted the top time in the first run and was second in the second run by just under two-and-a-half seconds, and posted a combined time of 2:46.21. David Berthiaume also finished among the top 10 with a combined time of 2:55.01.
The individual results allowed both the men's and women's ski teams to claim USCSA Reynolds Division titles; the men's championship was UMF's seventh in the last eight seasons, while the women captured their sixth Reynolds crown over the last eight years.
