LYME CENTER — Dartmouth women took three of the top four spots in the giant slalom to dominate the weather-delayed final event of the Dartmouth Carnival at the Dartmouth Skiway on Sunday.

Alexa Dlouhy, Patricia Mangan and Stephanie Currie finished 1-2-4 for the Big Green in a winning effort. Dartmouth hosted the GS nine days after its originally scheduled date because of ice conditions back on Feb. 8.

Normally a slalom specialist, Dlouhy took the lead after the first of two runs and held it upon completion of the second, posting a winning combined time of 2 minutes, 2.36 seconds for her first collegiate GS victory and podium. Teammate Mangan was closest to catching her (2:02.80). Vermont’s Mille Graesdal took third (2:03.16), followed by Currie (2:04.15).

Despite posting only the 20th-best afternoon run, Vermont’s Patrick McConville did well enough on the first to win the men’s GS in 2:01.47. Middlebury’s Justin Alier (2:01.49) and St. Michael’s Benjamin Throm (2:01.64) filled out the top three. Dartmouth’s Kipling Weisel (2:01.79), David Domonoske (2:01.93) and Peter Fucigna (2:01.93) were 8-9-10, with Fucigna posting the second-best time of the afternoon run.

The Big Green wraps up the carnival season at Bates College this weekend. The NCAA Championship is set for March 6-9 in Stowe, Vt.

Geraghty-Moats sweeps weekend

RENA, Norway — West Fairlee’s Tara Geraghty-Moats kept up her dominance of FIS Continental Cup women’s Nordic combined by completing a weekend sweep of events in Norway on Sunday.

As has been the case throughout this inaugural women’s season, Geraghty-Moats used her strength on the cross country segment to overcome a ski jumping points deficit. Geraghty-Moats was second behind Germany’s Maria Gerboth after scoring 105.5 points in Sunday’s jumping. That gave Gerboth a 29-second lead for cross country, which Geraghty-Moats easily erased when she placed second in the 5K loop race in 14 minutes, 3.3 seconds.

Geraghty-Moats has won all seven of the Continental Cup Nordic combined events in which she’s entered this season, including one at Rena on Saturday, and owns a 700-560 lead on Norway’s Gyda Westvold Hansen through eight stops on the 11-race schedule. The season concludes with three events in Nizhniy Tagil, Russia, on March 8-10.

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. — Ford Sayre ski jumper Evan Nichols edged out a Colorado competitor to win the men’s junior division of the Fred Harris Memorial Tournament at Harris Hill on Sunday.

Nichols, a Hanover High School freshman, amassed 211.5 points on jumps of 86 and 87.5 meters to nip Niklas Malacinski, of the Steamboat Springs (Colo.) Winter Sports Club, by 1.5 points. Sunapee High’s Cameron Summerton, competing for the Lebanon Outing Club, was 12th.

Nichols’ weekend included a third-place finish in Saturday’s men’s U.S. Cup jump meet at Harris Hill. Nichols (209.0 points) trailed only Colorado’s Camden Wilkinson (214.5) and Hunter Gibson (211.0), from Illinois’ Norge Ski Club. Ford Sayre’s Caleb Zuckerman was eighth, and the LOC’s Summerton was 15th. FSSC’s Cooper Dodds won Saturday’s masters competition.

Annika Belshaw, another Steamboat competitor, won the women’s junior division with 209.0 points. Slovenia’s Blaz Pavlic won the open division with 279.5 points.

Women’s LacrosseMichigan 11Dartmouth 10 (2OT)

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Dartmouth’s Kellen D’Alleva scored a free-position goal with 27 seconds left to force overtime, but the Big Green ultimately fell in the second extra session.

D’Alleva’s score capped a three-goal run that enabled Dartmouth (0-2) to erase a 10-7 deficit late in regulation. Campbell Brewer and Katie Bourque also tallied in the stretch for Dartmouth.

Neither team scored in the first five-minute overtime, but Michigan’s Molly Garrett ultimately decided the contest 48 seconds into the second OT for the Wolverines (4-0).

Bourque led the Dartmouth attack with a hat trick. Kathryn Giroux, Kierra Sweeney and D’Alleva all had two goals. Kiera Vrindten had nine saves for the Big Green, which visits Binghamton in nonleague action on Sunday.
