Description UTES WIN NINTH NCAA TITLE UNDER MILLER 1 1997 University of Utah Ski Team. 9 time NCAA champs. In their 19th season under the guidance of Ski Director Pat Miller, the University of Utah's ski team earned its ninth national title on March 5-8 at the 1997 NCAA Championships in Stowe, Vermont. In addition to their team wins, the Utes earned seven individual titles throughout the regular season and were all-con- ference winners. Once again, Utah brought a full team to the `97 NCAA's: senior Christ1 Hager and freshmen Marianne Winge and Tina Kavcic competed in women's alpine; sophomore Alain-F Britt-Cote and freshmen Markus Leunig and Ryan Forsyth in men's alpine; fresh- man Kristin Tjelle and sophomores Stine Hellerud and Hailey Wappeett in women's cross-country; and freshmen brothers Rune Kollerud and Frode Kollerud and Senior Kurt Wulff in men's cross-country. The first day of NCAA competition gained Utah its only 1997 individual title as Kristl Hager won the giant slalom for the third time in her collegiate career. This accomplishment made Kristl the only skier in NCAA history to win three individual giant slalom titles. Hager is the 32nd athlete to win a title under Miller. The remaining alpine team made a strong showing as well, placing first in combined alpine scores (377) followed by Colorado (347). The Ute cross-country team mirrored the alpine effort by placing first with 309 points, and by nearly making a sec- 5 ond national champion when Rune Kollerud was nipped at the fin- ish line by Alaska-Anchorage's Frode Lillefjell in the men's 20K. Denver posted a cross-country score of 294 to place second. Combined team scores afforded Utah a 686 point win over sec- ond-place Vermont (646.5). "This grouup of athletes knew what they had to do, and put on some stellar performances in the final two days," said Miller. "They showed a great work ethic and I am very proud of what they accomplished here." Eleven Utah skiers were named as All-Americans, ten were All-Conference, and seven Ute skiers won individual titles. Additionally, eight skiers maintained grade point averages during See Miller, Page MILLER LEADS UTES TO NINTH TITLE * Continued from page 5 the competitive season that placed them on the list of Western Athletic Conference Scholar Athletes. The ski program also vol- unteered six days to community service projects. Under Miller's leadership, the ski team has won NCAA cham- pionships in 1978, `81, `83, `84, `86, `87, `88, `93, `96, and `97. In the last 17 years, Utah has not finished out of the top three. During the 22 years that Miller has been at Utah his skiers have been named All-Americans more than two-hundred times. Last year coach Miller received his second Don Reddish Award. It is an honor given by the University administration honoring coach- ing skill in sports and academics. Congratulations to coach Pat Miller and the skiing Utes. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

THE UTAH SKI ARCHIVES GROWS IN SIZE AND REPUTATION: ARCHIVES UPDATE The Utah Ski Archives was founded to document skiing's col- orful history through paper, film, and oral history, and in turn become a research and information resource. Although several new collections have been received this year, the receipt of any substantial collections will be postponed until the Manuscripts Division of Special Collections completes its move within the Marriott Library. The move, to take place during 1998, will pro- vide a significant increase in space for the Manuscripts Division which houses the Utah Ski Archives. Although the receipt of materials has been limited, the role of the Ski Archives as an information resource has expanded. This last year the reputation of the Archives grew as requests for infor- mation have covered a wider variety of topics and come from a growing number of sources. The demand for the film and video portions of the Archives has blossomed. Photographs continue to be in high demand. As the 2002 Olympics become closer, demand for information and matierials is sure to grow. The last few months have also seen requests for television and radio interviews. The increase in requests for information from the Archives and its growing reputation as a source for reliable information is exciting. Adding to that information base have been additional oral history interviews and several small collec- tions. Information on the background and operation of Deer Valley Ski Resort has come from Bob Wheaton, Edgar Stem, and Chuck English. Interviews with John Hoagland are helping to document the role of the Forest Service in the preparations for the 2002 winter Olympics. Other new oral histories include Nelson Bennett, Jack Walker and Vem Nichols, Tom Mathews, Kent Matthews, and Jud Preston. Materials have also been received from Frank Whitney, Olympic competitor Darrell "Pinky " Robison, and Bob Bills, Bob Theobald, and other pioneers of the freestyle movement of the sixties and seventies. The Utah Ski Archives wishes to give a special thanks to all those friends of the Archives who have donated information and resources that help the Archives fulfill its mission. If you have leads on information or materials please contact Joe Arave at 581- 8589 or 581 - 8864. 6
