SCHLADMING, Austria (AP) – Lindsey Vonn set a women’s record for the most World Cup points in a season after finishing eighth in Saturday’s slalom. The race was won by Michaela Kirchgasser of Austria.

Vonn reached 1,980 points to beat the mark of 1,970 set by Janica Kostelic of Croatia in 2006.

The American overall champion needs 21 points in Sunday’s slalom to overtake Austrian great Hermann Maier’s 12-year-old record of 2,000 points.

Marlies Schild of Austria, who finished third, had already secured the slalom World Cup title.
