Nordic Combined

PCSS Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined just returned from a trip to the East Coast for a US Cup in Brattleboro, VT and US Junior Championships in Salisbury, CT. The athletes competed in front of a huge crowd in Vermont, and coaches, athletes and local organizers managed challenging weather to pull off two great events. Highlights from the Junior Championships included Macey Olden bringing home silver in the U20 female individual jumping. In a competitive U16 Nordic Combined field, Root Roepke skied to third place. Unfortunately, after the race, he was disqualified due to a false start. He took the bad news with class, and can count on not making that mistake again. On Saturday, Root and teammate Ian Carmack finished off the final team event strong with the 2nd fastest time and a 6th place finish in the Nordic Combined team relay. This week, we’ll turn our eyes to Zakopane, Poland, where our athlete Josie Johnson and PCSS alum Paige Jones will be competing in the World Junior Championships. Our other athletes will finish off the competition season at Western Regional Championships in Steamboat Springs, CO March 4th and 5th.
