— The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club cross-country team bookended U.S. Nationals and Junior Nationals with a high-level race in Midway, Utah, at the famed Soldier Hollow course.

The Winter Sports Club took a large contingent of racers and registered several top finishes. In Friday’s mass start skate race, Avery Harrington was first in the girls J5 division. Emily Hannah had a second in the girls OJ/J1 division, and Michaela Frias was third. Harrington won again in Saturday’s girls J5 mass start classic race. Tyler Terranova was second in the boys J4 category, Frias picked up a second in the girls OJ/J1 and Max Scrimgeour was second in the boys OJ/J1 division, missing first by half a boot length.

“It was very good,” Winter Sports Club coach Brian Tate said. “The weather was beautiful, and the kids skied fast throughout the age groups.”

Next up for the cross-country team is Junior Nationals on March 7 in Minneapolis.
