Division II women

Taking her fourth career Stars-and-Stripes jersey was Erica Zaveta (Brevard College). With a time of 3:08.401, she added the division II women's downhill crown to the gold medal she won in the short track on Friday.

"I qualified third yesterday. It was icy and muddy but today was much warmer. I do much better in mud," the all-around rider said. "I got to do some racing here in the summer because Beech was open so I did one race before this. I got to see the track before which was good but the mud was really good for me and I was pretty smooth with it."

Finishing second and third behind Zaveta were Coleen Pacuraiu (US Air Force Academy) with a 3:17.669 and Essence Barton (California Lutheran University) with a 3:20.674. Ali Osgood (Humboldt State University) and Sarah Hill (Brevard College) rounded out fourth and fifth.
