Nordic Skiers Set to Compete at NCAA Championship in Utah (VIDEO)

BRUNSWICK, Maine - A pair of Bowdoin College nordic skiers will take to the trails at the Soldier Hollow Resort in Midway, Utah on March 6 and 8 to compete in the NCAA Championship.

For the first time in school history, Bowdoin will send two competitors to nationals as Kaitlynn Miller qualified for the second consecutive year and James Crimp becomes the first Polar Bear male skier to earn a bid in the EISA-era.

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 (www.ncaa.com/liveschedule).

Crimp 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 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.
