UVM finishes second in own Carnival

Five Vermont skiers finished in the top seven of the women’s 10K race, with senior Caitlin Patterson claiming first on the final day of the UVM Carnival.

Despite the losses, Vermont is still in contention for the final playoff spot, trailing New Hampshire by only two points.
