While full results weren't available Sunday night, Fort Lewis College cycling head coach Matt Shriver was sure of one thing: His Skyhawks owned the podium in the short track cross country events.
On Day 2 of the Squawker MTB Classic, Fort Lewis swept the men's and women's A and B short track cross country races, which were held on a track behind Mercy Regional Medical Center.
Sage Wilderman capped a strong weekend with a win in the women's A race, with Kaila Hart taking fourth for FLC. Rotem Ishay turned the most laps in the men's A event, followed by teammate Nate Byrom in fourth.
"All the riders were motivated to do really well," Shriver said. "The national championships are about a month away, so it's kind of getting to crunch time for these riders."
In the men's B short track event, FLC's Brian Morra earned the top spot, and Skyhawk rider Tilly Field equaled Morra in the women's B race.
The dual slalom events took place at Chapman Hill on Sunday. Joey Schussler of the University of Colorado-Boulder took home men's A honors, and FLC's Fielding Lewis won the men's B race. The results for the women's race were not available.
With Sunday's wins coming on the heels of two Saturday wins, FLC turned in a strong weekend - one that had its coach excited.
"The men's A team looks great. ... On our women's side, we have Sage Wilderman, and she's kind of the leader. And we have a lot of freshmen, and they're really good," Shriver said.
