Tahoe’s Jessica Davis to join U.S. Freestyle Ski Team
PARK CITY, Utah — The U.S. Freestyle Ski Team added four moguls skiers, based on results from selection events at Winter Park Resort in Colorado, including a skier from Tahoe City, Calif.
The four include two former Ski Team members, Nate Roberts, 20, from Park City, Utah, and and Fred Mooney 22, from Tabernash, Colo. Roberts skied for Winter Park Ski Team and Roberts skied for Park City Freestyle. Both were members of the 2001 squad as dual moguls skiers.
Also named, based on results from selection events, were Lauren Crawford,19, from Steamboat Springs, Colo., and Jessica Davis,19, from Tahoe City. Crawford skied for Steamboat Springs Winters Sports Club and Davis skied for Alpine Meadows Ski Team.
“This is a real tribute to these athletes and to the regional programs; both the athletes and the programs deserve a lot of credit,” said Head Coach Jeff Wintersteen. “Jessica comes out of the Far West program, and she and Lauren have been around for a while, and now they’ve worked their way to the Ski Team. Lauren’s become more consistent than she’s been and it’s nice to see her move up, too.
“And Fred and Nate have stayed in touch, worked hard and done all the right things, and now they’re dominating just below the World Cup level, so they’ve earned a place on the team again,” Wintersteen said. Roberts won a Nor Am moguls event at Winter Park before Christmas and was second in another while Mooney was second and third in the two contests.
