Steamboat Springs Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club member Sophia Schwartz continued her hot streak on the freestyle moguls NorAm tour, picking up a second-place finish Friday in Val Saint-Come, Quebec.
Schwartz injured a forearm early in the day after catching an edge in the finish area. Doctors wanted her to get an X-ray, but Schwartz wanted to continue.
“She was skiing through the pain all day,” Winter Sports Club coach Rob Day said. “She charged through it. She was in pain for sure, but she handled it.”
Teammate Lane Stoltzner was eighth.
On the men’s side, Steamboat’s Ryan Dyer was having a good run when his boot broke leading to a fall.
The event continues Sunday with a dual moguls event.
The series wraps up next week with a pair of events in Vermont.
Schwartz is 18 points ahead of Canadian skier Beatrice Bilodeau and has two wins, a second and a third on the season.
