The women's team has newcomers that will look to make an impact this season. The newcomers are led by our strong group of returners.
On the women's team welcomes 6 new skiers to the team. Welcoming four freshmen, Brianna Marquis (NH), Jenny Hancock (NH), Paige Dutterer (ME), and Valerie Gillis (ME). Also looking to make their debut this weekend is sophomore Alicia Gaeiro (ME), and senior Sandy Mait (ME). Returning to the women's team this year is captain Jessica Freeborn (MA), Audrey Kahrs (MA), and Destiny White(ME).
