    LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — The University of Colorado ski team put individual accomplishments aside here Saturday, skiing with a strategy with limited risks to get all of its racers through the slalom, and the end result saw the Buffaloes bring home the title as the 62nd annual NCAA Skiing Championship.

    It is the school’s 20th national championship in skiing – 11 men’s, one women’s and now eight since the sport went coed in 1983; all eight of those have come under the direction of head coach Richard Rokos, who completed his 25th season coaching the Buffaloes this winter. Rokos’ teams have now won more national championships at Colorado than any other coach, as he snapped a tie with Bill Marolt (seven in skiing, all in a row from 1972-78), and current cross country coach Mark Wetmore, who has seen his men’s teams win five titles and the women two.

    CU skiing: Buffs hold off DU to win NCAA championship

    Two CU women finish in top 10 in slalom


    By Brian Howell

    On the biggest day of the season, the message to the Colorado ski team was simple: Don't mess up.


    Carrying a slim lead into the final day of the NCAA skiing championships at Lake Placid, N.Y., on Saturday, the Buffaloes knew that a nice, solid day in the slalom races could bring home a national title and one little mistake could ruin their title hopes.


    "Ski solid and finish," junior Henrik Gunnarsson said. "I think we pulled it off pretty good."


    Yeah, not bad.

    Rokos is such a treasure. 25 years and 8 national titles! Unreal that you can win one every 3 years or so in today's world. Congrats to this team on a great season!
