ANDOVER, N.H.—Junior MacIntyre Henderson (Park City, Utah) clinched the MacConnell Division individual title with a pair of top-five results as the Babson College men's alpine ski team recorded a victory and a fourth-place finish in its final slalom races of the regular season last weekend at Proctor Ski Area.
The Beavers, who entered the weekend one point ahead of second-place Castleton, fell behind the Spartans after placing fourth in in the opening race of the weekend on Saturday. Henderson placed fifth for the Green and White, while juniors Eli Wolfson (Woodland Hills, Calif.) and Jack Blanchard (Dover, Mass.) came in 14th and 16th, respectively. Classmate Sean Robinson (Reno, Nev.) finished 24th to round out the squad.
Babson bounced back with its fourth victory of the season in its regular season finale on Sunday. Blanchard came in second, Henderson was fourth and Robinson was one spot behind him in fifth position. Wolfson recorded his second consecutive top-20 finish as the Beavers secured their 12th consecutive bid to the USCSA Eastern Regional Championships by finishing second behind Castleton in the league standings.
Henderson, who became the program's first individual champion since Carter Dowd '16 in 2014, was on one of three Babson competitors to finish in the top 10 of the individual standings. The full MacConnell Division postseason awards will be announced early next week.
The Beavers return to competition on the weekend of February 23-24 when they travel to Sugarloaf to compete in the regional championships.
