Ski Jumping Since 1885
The fact that Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club held the 2021 Junior National Championships was, itself, a triumph. Despite the Covid 19 restrictions on spectators and one crazy day of weather, the week was a great end to a season that almost wasn’t. Central Division sent a contingent of 20 athletes, the biggest group there.St. Paul Ski Club’s Adeline Swanson (U16 jumper and member of the junior national team) and Sophia Schreiner (U20 jumper) joined teammates, Anna Zigman (U20 jumper) and Nathan Krotz (U16 jumper) who represented both the St. Paul and Minneapolis ski clubs. All four jumpers did a great job competing for the Central Division. Adeline had an equipment mishap which disqualified her from the individual jumping event, but coaxed everything she could out of a borrowed pair of junior skis to team up with Anna Zigman and Estella Hassrick (from Blackhawk Ski Club). The girls all put in solid performances to take 2nd place in the team jumping competition. Later that evening Adeline teamed up with Charlotte Ripp (from Cloquet Ski Club) to snag 2nd place in the team Nordic combined event. She can’t wait to collect her bribe of a cheeseburger from coach Brian Wallace! Sophia Schreiner put in a solid performance in the U20 Female individual jumping event by finishing 9th. The U20 class was stacked with several members of the national & junior national teams. She then teamed up with Sandra Sproch (from Norge Ski Club) and Charlotte Ripp for a 5th place finish in the team jumping event. Anna surprised everyone (except us) in her first
appearance at Junior National Championships. She put down some great jumps to finish 5th in the U20 female individual event and helped solidify the 2nd place finish for her team. Nathan Krotz thrilled everyone with his stylish jumps and caught the announcer’s eyes with his long locks of hair flowing in the wind. He finished 11th in a tough U16 male class. Then he teamed up with Karl Thompson (Cloquet), Carter Lee (Flying Eagles Ski Club) and Jacob Fuller (Norge) to place 4th in the team jump event. St. Paul Ski Club congratulates these amazing jumpers for all their hard work and accomplishments this season.
Winter Ski Jumping Season Ends With Slush Cup March 5 -by Sue Swanson
It was a night of costumes, not competition … fun evening for all We’d hoped to get another night of jumping next week, but the current streak of warm weather is expected to continue, and as often happens, the season gets cut a bit short. But we moved our annual “Slush Cup” event up a week, and had a perfect evening to enjoy it. We had action on our 10 and 20 meter hills, just jumping for fun, no judges, no scoresheets, just enjoying the last flights of the 2021 winter season. Here are a few photos from the evening’s festivities! CLICK PHOTOS TO ENLARGE
