Rocky took the team lead after Day 1, with a time of 4:33.96, over four-seconds clear of British Columbia. The University of Colorado placed third, followed by Whitman and the University of Idaho. The Yotes finished with a team time of 4:52.03.
Both the Coyote men and women will be on the hill tomorrow for the slalom qualifiers, with the Top-3 teams in the alpine combined earning a spot to the USCSA National Championships.
