Nordic Team Makes School History as Miller, Crimp Earn NCAA Bids

BRUNSWICK, Maine - For the first time in school history, two Bowdoin College skiers have qualified for the NCAA Championship.

Nordic seniors James Crimp (Anchorage, Alaska) and Kaitlynn Miller (Elmore, Vt.) have both qualified for the NCAA Championship to be held in Midway, Utah on March 6 and 8.

Hosted by the University of Utah at Solider Hollow Resort. The men's 10-kilometer and women's five-kilometer classical cross-country races will be conducted March 6. The women's 15-kilometer and men's 20-kilometer freestyle races will be held March 8. The NCAA will be providing a live webcast of the events at this link.

Crimp makes history as the first Bowdoin male skier to qualify for NCAA's in school history. He has enjoyed an exceptional campaign this winter, posting four of the top eight individual men's performances in program history. He tied the school record at the UVM Carnival earlier this winter with a fifth-place finish in the men's 10K.

Miller will be making her second consecutive trip to NCAA's as she capped an exceptional season by earning All-EISA honors this winter. Undoubtedly the best women's nordic skier in school history, she has rewritten the Bowdoin record books by posting the top eight all-time performances by a Polar Bear woman in EISA competition. Her best showing came earlier this month as she earned second-place in the 5K Classic at the Williams Carnival.
