BEECH MOUNTAIN, NC - Lindsey Wilson freshman Heather Collman raced her way to a national championship in the dual slalom during the Mountain Bike National Championships on Sunday, 26 Oct, 2014. Collman becomes the 16th individual in the programís history to capture a national title, including the 10th cyclist to win the dual slalom. The Rockton, Illinois, native edged teammate Ashton Raum by 0.17 seconds in the two-heat finals. Collman finished the two heats with a time of 47.36 seconds to Raumís 47.53. The pair helped the Blue Raiders finish fourth in the Team Omnium with 507 points.
Colorado-Boulder took home the team title with 709 total points. Marian (IN) placed second with 685 total points and Fort Lewis (CO) placed third garnering 662 total points.
The womenís dual slalom produced the most points for the Blue Raiders over the three-day event. Lindsey Wilson scored a championship-best 94 points in the dual slalom thanks to six riders finishing in the top 12.
Joining Collman and Raum in placing in the womenís dual slalom is Adrian Sanders (48.28 seconds) in sixth place, Brianna Delamare (49.49) in eighth, Sabrina Bice (50.19) in 10th and Vhasti Schmidt (51.38) in 12th.
In the menís dual slalom, J.D. Swanguen -- who won the 2012 downhill national championship - finished just outside the championship heat with a third-place finish.
Dakotah Norton finished fifth overall giving the Blue Raider men a pair in the top-five.
In addition to the dual slaloms, the mixed-team relay event was contested on Sunday.
The Blue Raiders placed eighth in the relay finishing with a time of 16:03.14. Marian won the four-lap race - that includes two to four riders that is required to alternate after each lap - with a time of 13:35.98.
