AP and USSA reports

WILMINGTON, N.Y. – Olympic champion Hannah Kearney and France’s Guilbaut Colas won World Cup moguls events Sunday to complete weekend sweeps in the Nature Valley Freestyle Cup at Whiteface Mountain.

The 26-year-old Kearney, from Norwich, Vt., has four victories this year and tops the World Cup standings.

“After the first day of competition, I really like the second day,” Kearney said. “I already skied the course and felt really comfortable. I was in the zone this weekend.”

Canada’s Chloe Dufour-Lapointe was second and teammate Kristi Richards third. Heather McPhie of Bozeman, Mont., was sixth and Eliza Outtrim of Steamboat Springs, Colo., finished 11th.

Colas, also the World Cup points leader, has three straight victories at Whiteface.

Canada’s Mikel Kingsbury was second, followed by countryman Pierre-Alexandre Rousseau.

South Shore’s Sho Kashima qualified 23rd and didn’t make the finals. He finished 34th in Saturday’s opening event at Lake Placid.

After taking 19th in his World Cup debut on Saturday, former South Shore resident Jay Panther finished 31st on Sunday.

Jeremy Cota of Carrabassett Valley, Maine, was the top American, finishing sixth. David Digravio of Farmington, Maine, was seventh, Bryon Wilson of Butte, Mont., eighth and Patrick Deneen of Cle Elum, Wash., 10th.

World Cup moguls competition continues next weekend in Calgary, Alberta, before heading to Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, for the World Championships Feb. 2-5. The World Championship team will be named Jan. 31.
