The Michigan Tech men's and women's Nordic Skiing teams both competed on day two at the US Nationals held at Solider Hollow, Utah on Sunday. Sunday's events were Classic Sprints Qualifiers.
"It was a pretty good day for the Huskies today," Michigan Tech Head Coach Joe Haggenmiller said. "I'm proud of all the athletes today and the effort they put in in challenging conditions. Our results were outstanding in the qualifiers today on the men's side and helped our standings in the College Cup. All of our athletes were really working hard to turn in some good times. We'll try and recover a little bit tomorrow and get ready to compete again on Tuesday."
The Tech men had two athletes finish in the top 15 of the standings with Tommy Mikkonen and Gaspard Cuenot recording 14th and 15th place finishes respectively. Mikkonen turned in a time of 3:44.47 while Cuenot hit the line with a time of 3:44.64.
On the women's side, Lisa Koenig paced the field for Tech in the Classic Sprints and finished in 128th place on a time of 4:01.46.
The Huskies will be back in action on Tuesday at the US Nationals in Soldier Hollow, Utah.
