PSC Winter Carnival Results

January 25th, 1998 by Adam

WATERVILLE VALLEY, N.H. – The Plymouth State College skiing teams completed a weekend sweep of events by capturing both the men’s and women’s giant slalom Sunday
at the P.S.C. Winter Carnival at Waterville Valley.

Both Panther teams also placed first in Saturday’s slalom event, the men winning among 10 schools and the women among 11. The PSC men have won the team title in all four
races this season, and the women have won three titles and finished runner-up once.

PSC freshman Anda Curuta (Sibiu, Romania) continues to dominate collegiate skiing in her first season. She placed first Sunday in the giant slalom, her fourth consecutive title,
and has yet to be beaten. She won Saturday’s slalom by nearly five seconds. She got excellent support Sunday from teammates Kyla Dunfee (Gilford, NH) and Amanda Dileo
(Ridgewood, NJ), who placed fifth and seventh, respectively. Sarah Thompson (Northboro, MA) also finished 13th for the Panthers, and Heidi Hawkenson (Plymouth, NH) was 18th.

Seniors Ben Moody (New Boston, NH) and M.C. Malboeuf (Laconia, NH) took top honors for PSC in the men’s giant slalom race, as PSC had four of the top six finishers. Moody
finished first overall, his second individual title this season, and Malboeuf was fifth overall. Moody and Malboeuf have combined for wins in three of the four races this season, and
neither has had a finish lower than fifth overall.

Freshman Fred DeBaets (St. Sauveur, QUE) also placed third overall for Plymouth State. Senior Ryan Welch (Rutland, VT) placed sixth, and freshman Brad Dowding
(Shrewsbury, MA) was 10th.

The Panthers will ski again next weekend (Jan. 31-Feb. 1) at Loon Mountain.
