GO WYO! UW Nordic Men’s Team Takes National Title
March 14, 2016 — The University of Wyoming men’s Nordic team finished a perfect week, sweeping all four events to capture its second straight title at the 38th annual United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA) national championships Saturday in Lake Placid, N.Y.
Despite winning three of the four races, the UW Cowgirls couldn’t quite finish high enough in the final team relay event, placing third, which allowed Clarkson University (Potsdam, N.Y.) to slip into first place. The UW women finished second in the nation for the second consecutive season.
With its second straight USCSA national championship, the UW men have now won six team titles since 2003, matching their Cowgirl counterparts.
“The men took the lead from the start and never looked back, putting an exclamation point on the national championship,” UW co-head Coach Christi Boggs says. She coaches the team with Rachel Watson.
The Cowboys compiled a team-low 39 points in winning the team title over Rocky Mountain Conference rival Western State College by a whopping margin. The Gunnison, Colo., school had 90 points, while Clarkson University was third with 134.
UW’s men won Saturday’s final team relay event with a low of six points, while Clarkson was second with 15.
The Cowgirls needed to win Saturday’s final team relay in order to maintain their slim national lead, but finished third, allowing Clarkson to take the overall championship by a close five-point margin.
