RED RIVER, N.M. — Two more team event wins, two more individual winners, and a second straight third place showing in the always tough RMISA was the sign of another big day on the slopes and trails as UNM finished just 42 points in back of winner Utah at The University of New Mexico/Drew Judycki Memorial/Jade Enterprises Invitational, held in Red River, New Mexico.
The Nordic races were held at Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area, while the slalom races were held on the Downtown Trail course at the Red River Ski Area.
The Lobos were solid throughout the weekend, picking up two more event wins to give the Lobos six on the season. The morning Nordic races saw the Lobo men once again win the freestyle 5K race, with a third straight win for Kornelius Grøv. The freshman now has six top-10s in six races, five podiums and three wins, all those in the freestyle races. He and teammate Ricardo Izquierdo-Bernier basically sat first and second the entire race, with Grøv winning by 0.02 seconds ahead of Izquierdo-Bernier. For Ricardo, it was his sixth straight top 10, and it marked his third podium of the season.
