RED LODGE -- Rocky Mountain College freshman ski racer Harlan Collins of Sun Valley, Idaho, completed a perfect weekend Sunday at Red Lodge Mountain.

Competing on a sunny and warm day, with temperatures in the 30s, Collins completed the weekend hat trick with a win in the men's slalom race, clocking a 1:37.15 in two runs. Shay Wieringa of Montana State was second and Eric Williams of the Missoula Ski Education Foundation was third.

Collins won the giant slalom races on Friday and Saturday. The competition was a three-day United States Collegiate Ski Association Grand Teton Conference meet. With warm temperatures, RMC coach Jerry Wolf said for the most part the snow was in good condition. Wolf said that Collins was able to swiftly navigate snow that was "firm and in good shape. It was hard, but inconsistent and icy in some spots ... Harlan has a pretty good touch and can feel the snow and adjust."

The men's team scores had MSU in first with 326.77, Rocky in second with 334.59 and Montana third with 356.07. There were no women's team scores, as no team had enough women finishers.

Carter Theade of the Silver Run Ski Education Foundation won the women's slalom race in 1:47.45 for two runs. Sylvia Coston of the Missoula Ski Education Foundation was second and Margaret Siberell of the Bridger Ski Foundation third. Theade, of Red Lodge, also capped a perfect weekend with her third win.

The overall men's team scores had MSU in first with four points, the Battlin' Bears second with five and Montana third with nine.

For the women, MSU won the overall team title in a tiebreaker over Rocky. Montana was third.

The Bears' next meet is in Red Lodge Jan. 19-21.
