Results omitted from Soldier Hollow performance
Update on Soldier Hollow race results
Steamboat Springs — Several top finishers were left out of a previous story about the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club’s performance at the Super Junior National Qualifier that took place at the Olympic cross-country course Soldier Hollow, Utah, last weekend.
Jordi Floyd led the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club girls at the race who skied to first-place finish in the 10-kilometer classic race in the U18 division. She was second overall in that race and was eighth in the sprint race.
The race included a loop around the sprint course and then two laps around a 4-kilometer course at Soldier Hollow. Headed into the second 4-kilometer lap, Floyd was with a group of four or five skiers leading the race. She was able to pass a couple of them, headed up a long gradual climb and then she put the hammer down en route to the finish line and a second-place overall finish — first in her age group.
“We had really fast skis last weekend,” Floyd said. “Our coaches always do a really good job with the wax on our skis, but this weekend they were really fast, and that was a huge advantage.”
Avery Harrington skied consistently well both days, capturing third in the 1.3-kilometer sprint event Friday and second in the 3-kilometer classic Saturday. Her teammate Waverly Gephardt was 10th in the sprint event, and third in the classic. Reilly Mewborn had an excellent weekend placing sixth in the sprint and seventh in the classic in the U14 division. Her teammate Anna Terranova had some of her best results with a 18th in the sprint and a eighth in the classic.
