Bo Randolph's second-place finish Sunday led the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club's finishes during the Return to Keystone Classic, which was held last weekend in Summit County.
Randolph, who led Saturday and Sunday's first runs, was edged by Tyler Robertson in Sunday's event. Steamboat's Nicolaus Demetrian was third, and Scott Voss placed eighth.
"Bo is off to a great start," coach Nate Bird said. "He's been on the podium in three out of the four events we've been at this year."
Other top Steamboat finishers were Nic DeVos in 11th and Luke Kamieniecki in 13th on Sunday.
Nathaniel Chellel (18th), Russell Ruppert (19th), Max Pensack (20th), Aaron Edelman (21st) and Ryan Dyer (23rd) also enjoyed top finishes in Sunday's event.
Kamieniecki was the top J-3 skier both days, and Dyer was second Saturday and fourth Sunday in his age group.
"The kids did extremely well and really stepped it up on a bulletproof course," Bird said.
During Saturday's opening event, Randolph placed third with a score of 21.97.
John Eaton of Morrison won the event with a score of 22.96, and Robertson was second at 22.47.
Voss placed fifth, Demetrian was sixth, and Kamieniecki came in 10th.
DeVos (13th) and Dyer (16th) collected top 20 finishes, and Ruppert just missed by finishing 21st.
Chellel (23rd), Pensack (26th) and Edelman (29th) also skied in Saturday's event.
Bird said the Winter Sports Club took 10 skiers to the Keystone events.
The team's next competition will be Jan. 7 to 10 in Steamboat Springs. The events will include two days of moguls and an upright aerial event.
