JNQ #1 - Jan 17 & 18, 2020

The Bridger Ski Foundation (BSF) Nordic Team spent the weekend competing in their first Junior National Qualifier races of the season, held in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

"I could not be more proud of the way this team came together to support each other as teammates," says BSF Nordic Program Director Andrew Morehouse. "The grit and determination of our team shined especially bright on Friday when all of our U16 and U18 girls qualified in the top 30 in the classic sprint while enduring harsh blowing snow and wind."

Another gutsy performance in the sprints came from Seth Wyatt. After comfortably winning his semi-final (which included the eventual race winner), Wyatt fell early in the men's final.  "Instead of giving up after his fall, Seth chased down the other five boys, passing one in the finish straight to finish 5th on the day," noted Morehouse.

Georgianna Fischer, Phineas Fischer, Reeve Alexander, Landon Wyatt, Hannah Kluck, and Paige Coletta all had podium finishes during the weekend. And a number of other BSF skiers had top-10 finishes, including Annaliese Pessl, Emma White, Aidan Van Eerden, Max Kluck, and Natalie Nicholas.

The JNQ was the first of three race weekends where junior racers can accumulate points to earn a spot with the Intermountain Division to compete at the U.S. Junior National Championships in March.

Max Kluck and Phineas Fischer placed 4th and 2nd, respectively, in the 5K freestyle
