Women’s Cross-Country Ski Team
The road to the Division II cross-country skiing championships in Lake Placid, N.Y. was defined by hard work and dedication for the 1992 BSU women’s cross-country ski team. Led by BSU Hall of Fame ski coach Dr. Muriel Gilman, skiers Kris (VanWilgen) Hammit, Kim (Michels) Rudd, Keri (Nuorala) Schricker, Kelly (Krenner) Olson, Kristina Robisch and Lisa Strand had high expectations going into the winter season. High-intensity practices culminated in a third- place finish at the Midwest Regional Collegiate Ski Association Championships and a trip to the U.S. Collegiate National Ski Association Championships in Lake Placid. The relay team of Hammit, Schricker and Rudd placed second in the event, while VanWilgen earned All-American honors.
