RUMFORD, Maine --- Jake Barton had a top-15 finish for the Colby College men's Nordic ski team and Lizzie Anderson just got into the top 20 for the women in the first race of the season at the Bates Carnvial on Friday at Black Mountain.
 
Barton finished 12th overall and 11th among Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association (EISA) skiers with a time of 27 minutes, 48.6 seconds over the 10-kilometer freestyle race. Levin Zars took 27th place for the Mules, who were sixth out of 12 teams with 65 points.
 
"It was one of Jake's best skate races to date in an extremely competitive field," Colby head coach Tracey Cote said. "I'm very happy with how he is skiing."
 
Anderson finished in 20th place with a 15:48.0 clocking over five kilometers. Molly Susla added a 27th for the Mules in 15:58.6. The Colby women took seventh out of 12 teams with a score of 62, despite missing Missy Krause because of illness. Krause was first among Colby skiers at the Eastern Cup event last weekend.
 
In addition to the ski carnival, the Chummy Broomhall Cup also was contested. Bates won the title and the Mules took second place. Barton was second among the men and Anderson took third for the women.
