GRP Athletes Podium at Biathlon NorAm in Jericho

Last Updated: 04.Feb.2019

This past weekend Kelsey Dickinson, Hallie Grossman, and Akeo Maifeld-Carucci raced the Biathlon NorAm in Jericho. Kelsey raced all three events while Hallie and Akeo each chose to compete in two. Technically the first sprint race on Thursday was a time trial (not a NorAm) used to help determine the US Open European Championships team. 

In the sprint time trial, Kelsey won the women’s race with two standing misses. For the men, Akeo placed third. The following evening the NorAm officially began with a sprint event which Hallie won with three misses. Kelsey joined her on the podium in second also with three misses. With Akeo not racing, Ethan Dreissigacker stepped up to the plate to represent the Craftsbury men placing 5th with three misses. After a day off, racing action wrapped up with a pursuit event. This time Kelsey took top honors with four misses while Hallie finished second with five misses. On the men's side, Akeo had a strong race placing second.

Hallie, Kelsey, Emily Dreissigacker, Alex Howe, and Raleigh Goessling are all pre-qualified for the Open Euro Champs Team and will be competing in Minsk-Raubichi, Belarus at the end of February so stay tuned!
