Lustgarten, who had a solid collegiate season this winter, won the Junior Age 18-19 division with a time of 2:52.8 ahead of Austin Cobb.
"This is a great way for Eric to start the week, and I'm excited to have him and Austin (Meng) at these championships representing St. Lawrence skiing," said Saints head coach Ethan Townsend. "I am very proud to have both of them on the team."
Meanwhile, Meng qualified for the heats but did not advance to finals, landing in 19th place overall.
