The University of Wyoming Nordic teams skied well on the second day of the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA) national championships in Jackson.
The Cowgirls remained solidly in third place overall after Wednesday’s freestyle sprint race at Jackson’s cross-country ski trails, while the Cowboys moved up to fifth place in the men’s division.
Three UW skiers, Trevor Willoughby, of Casper, for the men’s team, and women’s team members Kat Gruner and Maddy Tinker, both from Casper, made it into the B finals in a competition where skiers go through a three rounds: a qualifier, followed by the B and A finals.
Willoughby placed eighth overall for the Cowboys, while Gruner finished eighth in the women’s overall race. Tinker placed ninth.
Other UW results were: Laramie’s Ella DeWolf, 13th; and Sydney Wiswell, of Jackson, and Lander’s Silas Goetz, of Lander, both 14th in the women’s and men’s competition, respectively.
St. Olaf College (Northfield, Minn.) won the women’s race, followed by first-day leader Clarkson University (Postdam, N.Y.). The Cowgirls were third.
Vermont’s Castleton University again won the men’s competition, followed by Clarkson University and Colorado Mesa University. St. Olaf College placed fourth and the Cowboys fifth.
The teams have Thursday off. Friday, March 15, will be the men’s and women’s 15k race. Saturday wraps up the national championships with the team race.
