Day Two of Snowboardcross World Cup Results
On March 12th, the men's and women's snowboardcross team completed their second day of back to back races at the Sierra Nevada World Cup. After both teams had a respectable competition the day before, they were set to drop for day two under sunny and pristine conditions.
Lindsey Jacobellis had just come off of a bronze medal the day before, and was hungry for another podium. Jacobellis was able to secure third place in the quarterfinals, but unfortunately just missed the cut to make it onto the semifinals. The quarterfinals saw Jacobellis racing against Eva Adamczykova of the Czech Republic, Jana Fischer of Germany, and Lara Casanova of Switzerland. Adamczykova and Fischer both moved on to the semifinals.
After the event concluded, Jacobellis landed herself in ninth place. Following her was Faye Gulini and Stacy Gaskill both taking 13th overall, and Brianna Schnorrbush in 17th.
On the men's side, both Senna Leith and Nick Baumgartner placed 17th overall and third in their heats, but unfortunately were not able to make it onto the semifinals. Jake Vedder finished fourth in his heat and 25th overall. Hagen Kearney, Connor Schlegel, Tyler Hamel, and Cody Winters each ranked third in their heats and finished the day off in 33rd.
