If his best skier stays on her feet, then his team has a chance to do do well at the national championships this week.

"Kelly is on fire right now," Brown's third-year coach Mike LeBlanc said.

O'Hear, a senior from the booming ski town of Niagara Falls, has won her last five races and last weekend led the Bears to a three-way tie for first place with Colby-Sawyer and Boston College at the USCSA Eastern Regionals at Waterville Valley, N.H. More about that tie in a minute.
