The 18-mile ride for the varsity racers proved to be difficult while the 12-mile course for the other classes was dominated by Steamboat athletes.

Mary Mclarnon and Abby Olson placed second and third among junior varsity girls and Eva Minotto took home gold for the freshman girls. 

The team’s next race will be a home race in Steamboat on Saturday, Sept. 24.
