Brown Women's Ski Team Captures 1st and 2nd places at Brown Carnival

Feb. 4, 2002

Despite very cold temperatures and rather difficult course conditions, the Brown women got solid contributions from all skiers, impressing Head Coach Karen Finocchio.

In Saturday's slalom run, the team placed second overall, just losing to Boston College. Three racers placed in the top 15, including junior Doria Dibona (Waterville Valley, NH) and sophomore Molly Sheinberg (Woodcliff Lake, NJ), who both posted career best performances. Dibona finished 5th, while Sheinberg placed 12th. Senior Elizabeth Dibona (Waterville Valley, NH) was the top Brown finisher, earning 2nd overall.

On Sunday, Brown repeated last season's first place result in the Giant Slalom. The Bears just edged Boston College, as Brown posted a total time of 225.27 to BC's 225.30. Brown placed four athletes in the top 15. Doria Dibona was the top Brown finisher, coming in at 3rd overall. Elizabeth Dibona placed 6th. Freshman Naomi Sheffield (Skamania, WA) earned 11th, which was a career best. Molly Sheinberg placed 15th.

Brown returns to the slopes on Saturday February 9 at Boston College.
