Local family to relive 2009 NCAA Skiing Championship on TV


On Friday, Drew Roberts was thinking more about his classes at the University of Colorado than the happenings at the NCAA Skiing Championships, which took place in March.

But today, Drew and the rest of Steamboat Springs can relive the 2009 NCAA Skiing Championships as part of special presentation of CBS Sports Spectacular.

Roberts said he isn't sure how big a role he will play in the taped presentation, which highlights this year's championships, but said TV crews spent a good part of the week filming him and his sister Tina, who skis for rival Dartmouth University, during the championships.

"I think they focused on us because we are siblings skiing on two opposing teams," Roberts said Friday.

He thinks the show will focus on the actual races but said the show also might include several interviews outside of the races. Roberts said the idea of a brother and sister skiing at the national level, on different teams, seems to have thrust his family into the spotlight. He has not seen the finished product, however, and still isn't sure what to expect from the show.

According to the CBS Sports Television Web site, the Championships of the NCAA Winter Highlight Show airs at noon today on Channel 4.
