Mikaela Tommy was named the National Women’s Alpine Skier of the Year by the United States Collegiate Ski Coaches Association (USCSCA), the organization announced Monday.
Tommy dominated giant slalom this season, finishing six of seven GS races with five wins and one second place. Her first career DNF (did not finish) in GS action was at the NCAA Championships, a race she was favored to do very well in, if not win. In all, she had nine podium appearances in 10 finished races on the season.
Her five wins this season in GS alone would be enough to be CU’s career leader in GS wins. With her three wins from 2019, she has double the total of any other women’s alpine skier in program history.
Tommy is CU’s second National Athlete of the Year for this season, joining Dani Jones, who was named the Track & Field National Athlete of the YEar by the USTFCCCA last month.
