U.S. Ski Team Names Junior World and U18 Championship Teams

MIDWAY, Utah — The U.S. Ski Team named its U18 Trip and Junior World Championship teams on Sunday based on age-group rankings after three races at U.S. Nationals. Points were awarded to athletes like they are on the World Cup (100 points for first, 80 for second, etc.) and added together from their best two out of three races. Athletes are named to each team from the top of the ranking lists after pre-qualified athletes.

The U23 Championship team will be named after the conclusion of the final race, a freestyle sprint ,at U.S. Nationals on Tuesday, and selected from rankings based on the best two out of four races. Standings after the first three races can be seen here: women, men.

“I’m excited with the strong team,” said U23/Junior World Champs trip leader Bryan Fish.
