The Leavenworth native’s body of work wasn’t strong enough to merit an automatic spot on the U.S. Nordic Ski Team, but he had certainly done enough to be among the athletes feeling confident, hoping for a spot and keeping their fingers crossed. His first-place finish in the 2014 freestyle sprint at the U.S. Championships in January at Soldier Hollow in Utah certainly helped stake his claim.
