US Snowboard NEws
KILLINGTON, Vt. (March 22) - Defending ski halfpipe champion Jen Hudak (Park City, UT), who grew up skiing just down the road at Okemo Mountain, made it two-for-two Thursday at Killington Resort as she won her second consecutive U.S. halfpipe title on Day One of the Sprint U.S. Freestyle Championships, edging the top two women's skiers from last week's Junior World Championships. It was an exact repeat of the 2006 halfpipe podium at nationals.
David Wise (Reno, NV), also just back from Junior Worlds in Switzerland where he had the top U.S. men's result (sixth), captured the men's title by less than a point at Bear Mountain.
Versus will broadcast coverage from the championships Sunday, April 1 at 3 p.m. ET with coverage of the Nature Valley Freestyle Challenge dual moguls event at 4 p.m.
Competing in gusting winds, Hudak received 34.6 points on the first of her best-of-two runs. Sophia Schwartz (Ketchum, ID), silver medalist in halpipe at Junior Worlds, took silver Thursday as bright sun and a cloudless sky lit up the pipe; her second run was worth 29.6 points while Junior World Champion Kim Sharp (Park City, UT) took the bronze medal with a final run with 26.5.
Back-to-back wins for Hudak
"A little self-defense," Hudak said with a broad grin as she held onto her victory flowers and $3,400 check for first place. "We were hearing freezing rain yesterday, so I visualized a nice sunny halfpipe...and a sunny halfpipe it was, so I'll take credit for it.
"This is like coming home," said Hudak, who was born in Hamden, CT. "I grew up skiing at Okemo [less than 20 miles away] and Killington is as close to being home as I can get without being at Okemo. I skied here a lot when I was younger." She moved to Park City in the summer of 2004 to take advantage of training opportunities at Utah Olympic Park, where the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team trains much of the preseason.
She added, "I tried to ski as best as I could, and it worked out. I was really impressed with the halfpipe - Killington did a good job - and, really, with all the skiers. I thought verybody put on a really good show, so it was awesome."
Wise, a 16-year-old high school junior who was silver medalist a year ago at Killington, said he was battling a little jet-lag from the flight Tuesday from Europe, but was quick to note, "I'm pleased. [The title] definitely feels good." He received 43.7 point on his final run, enough to edge first-run leader Tucker Perkins (North Hampton, NH), who upped his score on the final run, but only to 42.9 - good enough for silver. Bronze medalist was Taylor Seaton (Avon, CO) with 41.2.
The Sprint U.S. Freestyle Championships continue Friday with moguls before shifting Saturday to aerials. The Rip It Trick of the Day will also be awarded Friday with Olympian and World Cup champion Jeremy Bloom (Loveland, CO) handing over a $2,500 pay check to the athlete who goes the biggest. Dual moguls are set for Sunday as The Nature Valley Freestyle Challenge concludes the championships.
