Andrea Komsic ended the GS event in fifth place, boasting a time of 2:18.64 right behind teammate Norbye.

Monica Hübner finished seventh on the day with a time of 2:19.22.


 

 

“Our men were solid and our women skied great today”, said head coach Andy LeRoy. “Giant Slalom has been our weakest event all season so to be sitting in third place so close to Utah and Montana feels great.”

Erik Read earned the best race of the day on the men’s side of competition for the Pioneers, finishing fifth with a time of 2:14.01.

Tanner Farrow skied in at 19th for the Crimson and Gold, finishing with a time of 2:17.82 while Alex Leever finished in 24th with a time of 2:18.22.

With their finishes today, Norbye, Komsic and Read all earned first team All-American honors.
