2019 Cross Country Junior Nationals

(updated 3/18; stay tuned for more photos!)

The Intermountain Division Team at the opening ceremonies.

This year, an impressive number of BSF Nordic skiers qualified for Junior Nationals in Anchorage, Alaska. Seventeen BSF athletes made the trip, and with the help of scholarships from BSF,  represented the Intermountain Division of Utah, Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho.

The week-long championships included two distance races, sprints, and a team relay with the best young skiers in the country battling it out at Kincaid Park in Anchorage. Several BSF athletes had top-20 finishes, and Kai Mittelsteadt teamed up with two other Intermountain Division athletes from Sun Valley, Hayden Halvorsen and Johnny Hagenbuch, to win the U18 Men's Relay by just 0.6 seconds over Alaska. Mittelsteadt also finished 10th in the Classic 15K, 11th in the sprint, and 17th in the 10K Freestyle. U16 skier Phinneas Fischer finished 16th in the sprints, and Ariana Woods took 17th in the 10K Classic.
