Ford Sayre Academy alumnus and sophomore sensation at Castleton State, Matt Couture, was officially honored as the USCSA ECSC MacConnell Division Skier of the Year following an impressive regular season.
Couture raced to top-ten finishes in every event throughout the season and finished fifth or better in eight of ten races as well. This included three victories and two additional podium results en route to earning the top spot in the ECSC MacConnell Division individual standings with 585 points. Couture is the first Spartan to earn Skier of the Year in the MacConnell Division since the team moved to the division prior to the 2012 ski season.
The Castleton team has advanced to the national championships taking place this week in Bend, OR.
