Locals fare well at Eastern Cup

NEWRY, Maine — A strong showing from members of the men’s U.S. Ski Team, Dartmouth College and University of New Hampshire alpine racers concluded the six-day FIS Eastern Cup Finals at Sunday River.

Dartmouth College’s Brian McLaughlin put together two solid runs for third place in the giant slalom with a combined time of 2:29.71 last week, just over a second behind winner Brennan Rubie of the U.S. Ski Team (USST). Dartmouth product Andrew Weinbrecht, USST, took third 2:29.45 and David Chodounsky, USST, placed fourth.

USST’s Rubie found the podium again in giant slalom, taking second place with a combined time of 2:24.48, while teammate Mark Engel topped the podium with a time of 2:24.14. Prescott McLaughlin took sixth place, in 2:26.84, and Sam Macomber placed 10th, in 2:28.00. Both are from Dartmouth. UNH’s Chad Thomas placed 14th.

The slalom event provided challenging course sets with just under half the field not competing their two runs on both Friday and Saturday. Robby Kelley, from Cochran Ski Area, had the fastest time of 1:38.43. Canadian Dominque Garand placed second, in 1:39.58, and Chodounsky rounded out the podium with a combined time of 1:39.59.
