After injury prevented Craig Marshall ’15 from competing in the U.S. Alpine Championships, he found another way to participate: becoming a race commentator for the week alongside veteran ski racing announcer Peter Graves. “With these nationals, it’s much less about reporting the times and more about entertaining the people,” Marshall said. “It’s just all off the top of my head. I’m fortunate, just because I’m around it. Especially with the first half of these fields, they’re older athletes and I know them personally.”

Marshall was also able to cheer on three Colby teammates racing in the championships: Mardi Haskell ’17, Sierra Leavitt ’16, and Jeanne Barthold ’15.
