Rebecca Nadler, Alpine Skiing

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Rebecca Nadler of the Harvard Alpine skiing team has been named the Harvard COOP Athlete of the Week for Feb. 20. The Ottawa, Ont., native battled challenging snow conditions and course sets to claim the giant slalom event at Jiminy Peak Feb. 18. Nadler improved on consecutive second-place finishes to become Harvard’s first Alpine skier to win a downhill event on the EISA circuit. The sophomore, now the overall points leader in the EISA, helped the Crimson to a ninth-place team finish with her event victory. Nadler and the Crimson take part in the EISA Championships at the Middlebury Carnival Feb. 24-25 to close the 2012 season.
