Utah – The University of Denver Alpine men’s and women’s ski teams competed in the Giant Slalom races at the University of Utah Invitational Friday, ending the day in third place overall with combined Nordic and Alpine stats thus far.

Included in the race times so far at the Invite are Giant Slalom, Freestyle, and the Classical Sprint.

Denver ended the day with 439 total team points, with Utah placing second with 451 points and Colorado as the current leader with 455 points.

Tuva Norbye had another strong day for the Pioneers, earning a podium finish, landing in third place with a time of 2:27.69 with teammate Monica Huebner placing sixth with a time of 2:29.25 on the day.

Andrea Komsic rounded out the top-10 for the ladies, finishing at 2:30.50.

“We had some good results and some poor results in the Giant Slalom portion of the Utah invite.  The massive amount of snow that has fallen over the past week created a very inconsistent surface for racing,” said head coach Andy LeRoy.

“As a team, I was hopeful we would manage this obstacle better, but we did come away with some solid results and plenty of things to work on.  I am looking forward to the next two days of SL.”



For the men, Alex Leever was the only top-10 finisher for the Pioneers, finishing the race with a time of 2:19.12 in 10th place.

Denver will continue in Snowbasin on Saturday with the Slalom races. Fans can follow along with live stats of Saturday’s races here. For a map of the Slalom race, click here.
