Steamboat Springs — It was a great day for the Gebhardts and a good one for the rest of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club Nordic skiers last weekend at a pair of cross country races in Minturn.
Wyatt Gebhardt won his freestyle interval start race and a mass start classic skiing race in the U16 boys division. Waverly Gebhardt, meanwhile, accomplished the same feat, a gold medal sweep, in the girls U14 division.
They were far from alone on their team as plenty of other Steamboat racers posted good results.

Finn O'Connell was fourth in classic and eighth in freestyle in the U18 division, Evan Barbier was seventh and third, and Alasdair Tutt was fourth in the masters division classic race. Grand Andrews was fifth in the U18 freestyle race.
Tyler Terranova was right on Wyatt Gebhardt's heels in the U16 division, placing second in the classic race and third in the freestyle race. Sven Tate was sixth and ninth, and Jimmy Colfer was seventh and 10th. Elijah Vargas was seventh in the freestyle race, Decker Dean was 13th and Brenden Andrews was 18th.
