Alpine Skiing—2008-09 Season Overview
2008 Season Recap
Vincent Lebrun-Fortin made his presence known right away as a first-year skier at Colby by earning two All-America honors, the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association Rookie of the Year honor, and All-East First Team honors.
Lebrun-Fortin and Josh Kernan each went to the NCAA Skiing Championships for the men and Dana Breakstone represented the women's team.
Lebrun-Fortin placed fifth in the slalom to earn a first team All-America honor and got on the second team for placing seventh in the giant slalom. Meanwhile, Kernan went to the NCAA meet for the second straight year and placed 14th in both events. Despite having two skiers (need three for a full team), Lebrun-Fortin and Kernan helped Colby take fifth in the slalom and eighth in the giant slalom.
Lebrun-Fortin was a winner in the slalom at the Williams Ski Carnival during the EISA regular season and took seconds in the event at the Eastern Championships and at the Vermont Ski Carnival.
Breakstone led the women's team along with Emily Colin during the EISA regular season. Breakstone took 29th in the slalom at the NCAA meet.
2006-07 Men's and Women's Season Recaps
Jody Centauro went back to the NCAA Skiing Championships for the second straight year and first-year skier Josh Kernan went as well for the men’s alpine team.
Centauro placed 22nd in the slalom and 24th in the giant slalom at the national meet, while Kernan was 20th in the slalom and 25th in the giant slalom.
Ryan Praskievicz earned NESCAC Winter All-Academic honors.
A year after the graduation of giant slalom national champion Abbi Lathrop, the women’s alpine team got a boost from first-year skiers Dana Breakstone, Emily Colin, and Laura Littman. All three skiers had top 20 performances at the EISA meets this year.
Brett Wagenheim, who made the NESCAC Winter All-Academic squad, Ashley Best, and Julia Peck Coffin also had solid finishes.
