Warren Wilson mountain bike team finishes 2nd in national championships

Robison was an individual national champion, finishing first in the women’s downhill. Krauss placed third in the short track and fifth in the omnium (overall) individual standings.

Other Owls finishing high in individual events were Camille Prevost, fourth in the mountain cross; Stiles Cummings, fifth in the mountain cross; and Lexy Lewis, eighth in the men’s downhill.

The cyclists competed in extremely muddy conditions after a late-October snowstorm dumped about 10 inches of snow on the Seven Springs area before the championships.

"The conditions were very muddy and treacherous," Warren Wilson cycling coach Art Shuster said. "I was very impressed with, and proud of, our performance."

The second-place finish marked the third consecutive year that Warren Wilson was runner-up to Lees-McRae College in Division II, after the Owls finished third in 2002. Division II consists of colleges and universities with an enrollment of fewer than 15,000 undergraduate students.
