BIG SKY, MONT. – The University of Alaska Anchorage had four skiers finish in the top-20 in the giant slalom at the MSU Invite Sunday.
Charley Field was the top female finisher for the Seawolves finishing eighth with a combined time of 2:10.50. Her first run time of 1:03.73 was the second fastest in the field.
Georgia Burgess finished 11th with a combined time of 2:11.05. Her second run time of 1:05.81 was the sixth fastest of the field.
Alix Wells was the third UAA female in the top-20 after placing 19th with a combined time of 2:12.60.
"We're seeing some good things happening from our entire group," said head coach Sparky Anderson. "Georgia was sixth on the second run and moved up from 31st to 10th. Chuck was eighth todday but is a proven threat in giant slalom. The men are battling. It's a dog fight, and I think our group will be in the mix this year. Dom moved into the top-10, and Eric and Tony belong there too. We just need to keep hammering."
Dominic Unterberger led the men’s squad with a ninth place finish with a combined time of 2:08.40.
The Seawolves currently sit in sixth place in the RMISA standings with 102 points.
UAA will compete in the slalom races at the MSU Invite Monday.
