JACKSON, N.H. Martin Stuge Banerud picked up his second All-American honor at the 2007 NCAA Skiing Championships on Friday. He placed seventh in the 20K classic with a time of 55:58.5.
 
Two other NMU skiers placed in the top 25. Phillip Violett was 12th (56:26.8) while Bill Bowler skated to a 24th place finish (58:55.1).
 
Dartmouth leads the team standings after three of four days with 511 points.   NMU is fifth (and the top Nordic squad) with 380. 
 
NMU does not field an alpine team and thus can not move up at the championships, which conclude Saturday with giant slalom races.
