Western’s alpine team prepares for Nationals

The Western Colorado University alpine team attended regionals Feb. 19-24 in Red Lodge, Montana.

After training on Wednesday — getting their skis underneath them as well as getting a taste of the race run — the women’s team took to the slopes on Thursday for the giant slalom.

Freshman Ella Engelhard skied two outstanding runs and finished on the podium in third place. Abby Davidson also skied excellently and landed a top 10, finishing in ninth. Kyra Long, Maeve Poulson and Lindsey Herman rounded out the scoring for Western finishing in 21st, 48th and 53rd.
