Red Hawks Romp at Nordic Mt.

Eric Smith dominated the Men's B downhill competition during the Red Hawks Romp at Nordic Mountain today. Smitty took the top place by more than 20 seconds in the event in which riders combined their times for two runs down the rocky trails of the ski area. It was his first competition on his new downhill rig after shearing the rear axle on his old ride at Butler last week.

It was Smith's second first-place finish in the discipline in two weeks and led the Ripon attack. Eric was also Ripon's top finisher in the Men's B cross country race, taking third place behind Joseph Maloney of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Taylor Ladd of Lindsey Wilson College. Ripon's Andy Fehrenbach finished in 14th place in the event.

In the Women's A cross country race, the Red Hawks sole female Tiffany Seering took sixth place, just over a minute and a half behind fifth-place finisher Brooke Crum of Lindsey Wilson.

Andy Ayers again led Ripon in the Men's C race. The junior from Eagle River, Wis., was about two-minutes off the pace of second-place finisher Graham Kennedy of the University of Michigan. The Red Hawks put all three of their C Men in the top ten with Zach Smith finishing 8th and Paul Meuer finishing 10th.
