CORRECTION: April 13, 2017

A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Rebecca Nadler '14 was inducted into the Harvard Varsity Club Hall of Fame. Nadler will not be eligible for this honor until 2029.

Rebecca Nadler '14 will become the first Harvard skier to be chosen to the newly created William S. Broadbent Family Harvard Skiing All-Time Team. She will be honored later this year.

The class of 2017 inductee quickly became a dominant force in NCAA women’s alpine skiing beginning her freshman year. The Ottawa, Ont., native opened her collegiate career with a fourth-place finish at her first giant slalom race at the St. Lawrence Winter Carnival. She also had strong showings at giant slalom races at the Colby Winter Carnival before qualifying for the NCAA Championships during the 2010-2011 campaign.

Nadler only continued to achieve more success her sophomore year. She opened the 2011-2012 season with a sixth-place finish in the giant slalom event at the Bates Winter Carnival as well as with two second place finishes and a win at various other races before qualifying for the NCAA Championships for the second year in a row.

As a sophomore, the Nadler became the first Harvard skier, male or female, to win a national championship with a first place finish in the giant slalom event in Montana. Her winning time of 1:41.82 also earned her All-American status for the season. Nadler was also just the fourth woman from the Eastern Region of the NCAA to win the giant slalom title. She placed seventh in the slalom event to cap off her unprecedented campaign.

Nadler kept earning more accolades in the rest of her Harvard career, qualifying both her junior and senior year for the NCAA Championships. Ending her collegiate career on a high note, she once again received All-American status with a sixth place finish in the giant slalom event at the NCAA Championships her senior year.

The All-American and 2011 National Champion graduated in 2014 with a degree in neurobiology.
