Miller Becomes First Bowdoin Nordic Skier to Earn All-American Accolades

JACKSON, N.H. – Hannah Miller became the first-ever Bowdoin nordic skier to earn All-American honors following a 10th place finish at the NCAA Championships hosted by UNH.

Miller competed in a pair of events, beginning with a 5K classic on Thursday where the senior put together a 31st place finish with a time of 16:52.0. The senior competed against racers from peer institutions like Colby and Williams, but also faced individuals from large Division 1 institutions like University of Utah and the University of Colorado.

On Saturday, Miller earned All-American status with a 10th place finish in the 15K skate (40:50.5) while battling brutal conditions. Wind gusts and freezing temperatures made conditions difficult for racers in the event. The senior was the third east coast finisher and first Division 3 finisher in the event. The previous best finish for a Bowdoin skier at nationals came in 2014 from Miller's older sister Kaitlynn, with a 19th place result.
