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