FLC cycling brings its hammer Day 1

Lauren Catlin defended her cross country national championship with a dominating effort in the Division I women’s race Friday in Angel Fire, N.M. “I wanted to be by myself. I went for it, got a gap and hoped I wouldn’t bonk,” she said. She didn’t, and she led a 1-2 finish in the race for Fort Lewis College on Day 1.
Sarah Zoey Sturm didn’t have the best opening lap during the cross country Day 1 of the mountain bike national championships Friday in Angel Fire, N.M. “So on the second lap, I said I don’t even care if I lose all my teeth in a crash; I just want to do better this time.” She finished runner-up to FLC teammate Lauren Catlin.
Howard Grotts, leading from the start, won his third consecutive national collegiate cross country title and led a 1-2-3 FLC sweep in the men’s Division I race, a four-lap circuit on a 4.7-mile course.
The story Day 1 for the Skyhawks was a freshman, Garrett Lundberg. “Garrett ... he broke my freshman record,” said runner-up Rotem Ishay, who was fourth at nationals his freshman year. “I’m so happy for him.” Lundberg finished third in his first competition on the big stage.
