    RED RIVER, N.M.—The top-ranked University of Colorado ski team and host New Mexico battled it out throughout the day Saturday and when the dust settled the host Lobos edged out the Buffs by just 28 points to win the New Mexico Invitational here at Red River and Enchanted Forest.

    New Mexico finished its meet with 579 points to Colorado’s total of 551. Utah edged out Denver for third place by just 3½ points, 505½-502. Alaska Anchorage took fifth with 470½ and Montana State finished sixth with 423 points.

    “Were not blaming the conditions, but it was tough with more snow on the course,” CU coach Richard Rokos said. “I can only imagine the Nordies were fighting a different animal out there with all the factors. Lighter structured skiers dominated the race and Rune (Oedegaard) and Mads (Stroem) don’t fit that bill. On the bright side, Maja (Solbakken) is a star, she took full advantage of what she needed to this week with two podiums.”
