Chodounsky ’08 Wins NCAA Ski Championship

A Dartmouth Man wins this title for the fourth consecutive year.

David Chodounsky won the men’s slalom competition today at the NCAA skiing championship, which is taking place at Stowe this week. Dartmouth remains ahead of Utah, New Mexico, and CU– all school that offer scholarships for skiing and make liberal use of foreign recruits. Dartmouth, like all other Ivy League schools, does not offer athletic scholarships. Dartmouth sits in 3rd with an event, a freestyle nordic race, to go tomorrow. The same is true for first and second place, DU and UVM, respectively.

Said Chodounsky, “To end the season this way is really amazing. I’ve been skiing well all winter and had some good races during the season, and to end it with a national title just tops it off. It’s good to see that all the hard work I put in throughout the year paid off. I was in good shape after a good, solid first run so I stepped it up a notch in the second run and put down really fast run to take the win.”

The best of luck to the team tomorrow.
