Skiers off to Big Sky Country
The Alaska Anchorage ski team will continue Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association action this week in Montana. The Montana State Invite will feature eight races, plus the men’s slalom race that was cancelled last week at Colorado will be contested.
Freshman Sigurd Roenning opened his RMISA career with a runner-up finish in the 10-kilometer classic and then earned his first win in the 10-kilometer classic race. Roenning, a native of Vikersund, Norway, defeated Logan Diekmann by 0.6 for the win. Roenning was named the RMISA Men’s Nordic Skier of the Week for his exploits.
Seawolf Men Excel
The UAA men turned in an impressive showing last week at Colorado. The Seawolf men finished with 213 points, 46 points behind Utah. The men’s Nordic skiers racked up 155 points, 16 points behind Utah.
UAA posted seven top-10 marks last week at the Colorado Invite.
The UAA alpine ski teams have had a different person lead the team in each of the five races this season.
Alaska Anchorage will head to the land of enchantment for the New Mexico Invite Feb. 1-2.
