MIDWAY, Utah — North Central Washington skiers continued to have a successful week at the U.S. Cross Country Ski Championships at Soldier Hollow, as Winthrop’s Erik Bjornsen claimed his first national title in the men’s 15K freestyle individual start on Friday. Bjornsen, 21, joins Leavenworth’s Torin Koos as local skiers to claim championships this week — Koos won his eighth national title in the classic sprint Wednesday. Bjornsen’s older sister, Sadie, has also fared well, taking second in both Wednesday’s classic sprint and Friday’s freestyle.
