Fletchers 21st, 29th at final World Cup

It was a decidedly lackluster finale for what was an up-and-down season for the U.S. Nordic Combined Ski Team, competing in the final World Cup of the season on Saturday in Oslo.

The field was limited to the top 30 competitors in the World Cup standings, which put Bryan Fletcher and Taylor Fletcher in for the United States.

Taylor Fletcher led the way, placing 21st. He logged the day’s fourth fastest ski time on the 15-kilometer course to move up after placing 25th in the jumping portion.

Bryan Fletcher was 30th after the jump and moved up to 29th.

The final performance didn’t do much to sum up Bryan Fletcher’s season. The highpoint came with a fifth-place finish in a World Championships event, and he recorded six top-10 finishes.

Taylor Fletcher saw his high-water mark come with a third-place finish in Japan last month. He had one another top-10 as well and finished 27th in the overall World Cup standings.

Billy Demong was 48th on the season and Adam Loomis 55th.
