Jan. 9, 2017
– The University of Denver continued its dominance Sunday in the Slalom races at the Montana State University Invitational at Big Sky Resort – Bohart Ranch, placing nine athletes in the top ten finishers in the men’s and women’s races.
As a team, Denver ended the weekend in second place with 308 total points. The weekend’s leader was Colorado, finishing with 334 team points.
Monica Huebner finished first in convincing fashion, coming in at 1:38.42 with the next skier not coming in until 1:39.13.
“Our alpine team finished the MSU invite in typical Pioneer fashion by dominating the SL events,” said head coach Andy LeRoy.
Tuva Norbye placed seventh on the day with a time of 1:40.46 with teammates Kristine Fausa Aasberg and Andrea Komsic tying for eighth with a time of 1:40.76.
Rounding out the top ten on the women’s side of the slalom was Storm Klomhaus with a time of 1:40.93.
“We put four men and five women in the top-ten of each race, including the women's victory by 2015 NCAA SL champion Monica Huebner. While these results are encouraging, I am more excited about what our team is learning and taking away from each day. Our seniors are doing a great job of leading by example and the young group of six freshmen are improving with each run,” said LeRoy.
The Alpine team will continue competition at the University of Utah Invitational on Jan. 12.
