Patrick Deneen, who trained with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club briefly, was named to the men's U.S. Olympic team along with Bradley Wilson.

— Thanks to a huge weekend, a pair of Steamboat Springs moguls skiers should finish on the moguls World Cup season-ending podium.

With a second-place finish in single moguls in China, Jeremy Cota has all but locked up a place on the podium.

Cota is second in the world.

Teammate and fellow Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club skier Patrick Deneen also moved onto the podium thanks to a win in dual moguls in China.

Deneen moved into third place in the overall World Cup standings.

"It was a good week for all those kids," said Winter Sports Club coach Timmy Meagher, who is the personal coach for Deneen. "But all around, it was a great day for the Steamboat kids. I don't remember two Steamboat kids ever finishing on the podium of the overall final results."
