Denver Keeps First Through Second Day of Utah Invite

Jan. 12, 2018


HUNTSVILLE, Utah – The University of Denver’s ski team remains in first place after the second day at the Utah Invitational. DU scored 69 points from the men’s alpine team, who placed third on the day in the Giant Slalom.

The Pioneers have earned a total of 176 points, 30.5 points ahead of Montana State and 37.5 points ahead of third place Utah.

Freshman Jett Seymour scored the best finish for the Crimson and Gold, taking first. The Steamboat Springs, Colo. native raced for a time of 2:12.52, earning 40 points.

“We were lead today by the freshman Seymour who skied his heart out and captured his first college victory,” said head coach Andy LeRoy. “Seymour is ranked number one in the world for his age in Slalom, but he has put a ton of work into his Giant Slalom this offseason and today’s result was a nice payoff.”

Coming in 15th was Tobias Kogler, who skied for a time of 2:14.15. The freshman scored 16 points for Denver.

A few spots behind finished Alex Leever. The Vail, Colo. native placed 19th, but earned a time of 2:15.19 for 13 points.
