Hanna Straltsova Dominates at Collegiate Nationals

ULM freshman Hanna Straltsova turned in one of the most dominant Collegiate Nationals performances ever. After winning D1 gold in Womens Slalom on her Syndicate Ski with 3.5@38′off, she earned bronze in D1 Womens Tricks before breaking the NCWSA Womens Jump record an epic 159 foot leap. With the beautiful site (Bennetts) and conditions ripe for a record, Hanna took full advantage. Her clutch overall skiing helped propel her team to their 28th NCWSA National Title. Congratulations to Hanna and ULM on their big victories!
