LAKE PLACID, N.Y. --- Molly Susla had a top-10 finish for the Colby College women's Nordic ski team and Jake Barton was in the top 20 for the men's squad at the St. Lawrence Carnival on Saturday at Mt. Van Hoevenberg.

 
Susla had a terrific first weekend of skiing, with two top-20 finishes in the two events. She was 19th in 15-kilometer racing on Friday and was 10 places better in ninth place in 3-kilometer prologue freestyle Saturday. Susla helped the Colby women place eighth.
 
Barton also earned his second top-20 performance by taking 18th in the 3-kilometer race in 8:14.2 to power the men to a fifth-place finish. He was 13th in 20K racing Friday. First-year skier Calvin Wight was just two seconds behind Barton with an 8:16.5 clocking to take 21st place. 

The Mules will host the Colby Carnival next Saturday and Sunday at the Quarry Road Recreation Center in Waterville.
