Valdez and Skarda top division 2 standings

Division I men

Chris Baddick (University of Colorado-Boulder), who claimed silver in yesterday's short track race, made the winning move in today's cross country competition to claim the national title among division I men.

"There wasn't so much a winning move," he said. "It was more about not making too many mistakes. When Kerry (Werner) went down on the second lap, I didn't have any choice but to attack. I got about 10-15 seconds on him and I put just enough pressure on him that he made a couple more mistakes and I could stay away until the end."

Kerry Werner (Lees-McRae College) finished in second while Kuss Sepp (University of Colorado-Boulder) collected the bronze medal. Yesterday's short track winner and Baddick's teammate Samuel Morrison (University of Colorado-Boulder) was fourth and Luke Vrouwenvelder (Lees-McRae College) was fifth.

Division I women

Kate Courtney (Stanford University) is really putting her mark on Division I women's racing. On Saturday, she claimed the cross country win after taking the short track win on Friday.

Courtney finished ahead of silver medalist Lauren Catlin (Fort Lewis College) while Sofia Fomez Villafane (Fort Lewis College) took the bronze. Coryn Rivera (Marian University) and Linnea Dixson (University of Wyoming) claimed the fourth and fifth steps of the cross country podium.

Division II men

Zachary Valdez (Brevard College) took his second national title of the weekend in division II when he added cross country gold to the short track win he achieved on Friday.

"I didn't come in expecting a lot," he said. "But I knew I had the potential to win and so I just went with it and it worked out pretty well."

Valdez made the winning move in the second lap. He created a gap on the climb and held it until the end, finishing ahead of silver and bronze medalists Timothy Jenkinson (Mars Hill University) and Dylan Johnson (Brevard College). Lewis Gaffney (Brevard College) and Robert Rimmer (Virginia Intermont College) were fourth and fifth.

Division II women

Alexis Skarda (Colorado Mesa University) rode her way to the top step of the podium in division II, adding a gold medal to the silver she took in the short track.

"Since there were only two laps, my plan was just to take off on the hills because hills are my strong point," the senior rider explained of her strategy. "I was a little nervous about the technical section but I took the lead half way up the hill and got 10-20 seconds from that point on."

Skarda beat out second- and third-place finishers Kaysee Armstrong (King University) and yesterday's short track winner Erica Zaveta (Brevard College) while Sarah Hill (Brevard College) and Essence Barton (California Lutheran University) rounded out the podium.
