After strong finishes in Sunday’s team time trials, Marian University and Milligan College won USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships in divisions I and II, respectively in Marshall, North Carolina.

Marian dominated, winning both the men’s and women’s team tests, while Milligan won the women’s TTT and was second in the men’s TTT.

Notably, Milligan was blanked in both Friday’s road race and Saturday’s criterium, failing to finish on the podium in either men’s or women’s events. Marian also had precious few medals up until Sunday — Andrew Dillman was second in the crit, and Emma Swartz was third in the women’s crit.
