Woodrow Leads U.S. Women in Super-G Race
Tarvisio, Italy - Sophomore Alpin Skier Helena Woodrow led the U.S. Women for the second straight race at the World University games with a 13th place overall finish. After a sixth place finish in the Downhill, Woodrow once again was the top finishing U.S. skier in the women's Super-G race.
Woodrow, a native of Frisco, Colo., finished with a time of 1:38.13 that was well off the winning pace.
"It wasn't my best day of skiing," Woodrow said, "but I gave it my best shot. I'm looking forward to the technical events. We're going to do better as a team. Back home when we ski together any one of us can win on any given day."
The Super-G and Downhill races are much faster races than the Slalom and Giant Slalom that the women usually compete in during the NCAA season. Those races will take place later in the week.
