  • 2010 NCAA Ski Championships - Day 1 Results

    STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. --- The snow held off for most of the day and teams needed a little bit of luck on the first day of the 2010 NCAA National Ski Championships at Mt. Werner in Steamboat Springs, Colo. The University of New Mexico is in fourth place after the first day of events, the men's and women's giant slalom with 173 points, 5.5 points behind third-place Vermont (178.5) and 66 behind first-place Denver (239). Fellow RMISA member Utah is in second with 196.5 points. The Lobos got three All-America performances from senior Malin Hemmingsson, junior Thomas Schwab and freshman Anne Cecilie Brusletto.

    Hemmingsson and Brusletto finished 4th and 6th to earn first and second team All-America honors. For Hemmingsson, it is the fourth All-America honor of her career and her second in giant slalom (2008). The fourth-place finish was also her best career finish in the NCAA giant slalom race over four seasons. Brusletto, the first racer on the course, set the pace for the rest of the women's field by posting a 58.97 first run, ending up second after the first run behind eventual national champion Eva Huckova of Utah. Freshman Kate Williams rounded out the scoring for the Lobo women with 16th place. UNM finished third as a team in the women's slalom with 102 points.

    Schwab earned the first giant slalom All-America honor of his career, second overall, with his 7th-place finish. Freshman Chris Acosta placed 15th overall, while sophomore Petter Brenna finished 29th. While to women had fairly clear conditions in the morning, the men's race conditions gradually deteriorated as the clouds rolled in and the snow began to fall. The first run was very fast and several skiers with one particular curve in the middle of the hill, including Brenna. Brenna was on a strong pace, but wiped out around a gate and had to hike back up two gates before completing the course to remain in points contention for the Lobos.

    Competition continues Thursday morning with the Nordic teams taking to the trails for the national championship classical races at Howelson Hill. The women's 5-kilometer race begins at 9:30 a.m., followed by the men at 11:30 a.m. Live results links, and photo gallery and blog updates are available on GoLobos.com.
