BOZEMAN, Mont. - Sophomore Ana Kobal turned in a runner-up finish in the women's slalom race to highlight the last day of the NCAA West Region/RMISA Championships for the University of Utah ski program.

The Utes earned 180 points on the day and ended the meet in third place with a total of 805 points. Colorado came away with the RMISA crown after amassing 905.5 points, while Denver finished second with a total of 859 points.

Kobal was the second consecutive Ute to place as the runner-up as she finished second for her fourth podium effort of the year and her fourth-straight top-five effort.

"Well it turned out to be a great race," Kobal said. "There were challenging conditions, but the coaches and volunteers worked hard so we could have a good race. I was able to take advantage of this and it turned out well for me. The team is doing great and I am really excited for the NCAA races in Vermont."

Junior Jaime Dupratt was the second Ute to place in the 10 as she tied for seventh place, which was her seventh top-10 effort on the year, while Kristiina Rove followed in 28th.

On the men's side, Ryan Wilson led the Utes with a 14th-place effort, which was his sixth time in the top 20 and his 31st career top-20 effort during his career.

Jeremy Elliot took 17th place for his sixth top-20 effort on the year and the 11th of his career.

Tim Hribar followed with a 22nd-place finish, while Andy Trow finished 29th.

The NCAA Championships await the Utes Mar. 6-9 in Middlebury, Vt.
