NCAA ski racing update

Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 19, 2010 12:56 pm

I am proud to update you with recent NCAA ski racing results as I return from a weekend cheering on my ex-team mates from USC at Mammoth this weekend. Although, this week, we are talking about an east vs. west battle.

The West just completed the alpine leg of the Utah Invitational and both alpine and nordic events at the Montana State Invitational. CU remains on top and the Nordic team held it’s own and we remain excited to see this top team battle. It’s no surprise Colorado rider’s remain on top in every area of the sport from professional to college. 

Coming in second is New Mexico. The Lobos won the alpine legs of both the Utah and Montana State Invites this week. With Colorado surrounding them on both sides with DU in third. World Cup Norwegian rider, Leif Haugen missed the first of four races in a busy week of RMISA racing, but it’s not enough to knock ‘em down. Seppi Steigler shows some pride with a win in the GS opener at Park City, and transfer student, Lindsay Cone won three second-place finishes, starting with the Utah slalom. 

The East comes sliding in with the fourth and fifth spot. Perhaps the most noteworthy, Dartmouth scored more total points than any team in the country this week!

In fifth, we have Vermont who dropped one spot this week. The Cats won three of four races by way of Lyndee Janowiak’s in GS and David Donaldson’s double-gold performance in alpine.

Stay tuned for more results, as the season pulls forward. Good luck to all the races and keep speeding to the finish.
