With a first place finish in the Women’s 5K Classic and a second place finish in the 15K Freestyle, Novie McCabe was a driving force in Utah’s domination on the National stage. Additionally, Sophia Laukli also played a major role as her first place finish in the 15K Freestyle was the cherry on top and sealed the victory for the Utes.
