Two of our junior women at the Junior World Championships in St. Anton, Austria, secured a top ten in the downhill on Thursday, Jan. 19.

Ava Sunshine scored an eighth place and teammate Lauren Macuga secured tenth.

The top three finishers for the downhill included swiss skier Stefanie Grob, second place went to Italian skier Vicky Bernardi and third place went to Norwegian skier Pernille Drystad Lydersen. On the men’s side, Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes Cooper Puckett, Jay Poulter, and Finnigan Donley also raced in the men’s downhill landing in 17th, 28th and 29th respectively.

Justin Bigatel and Hunter Salani ended their downhill day in 35th and 38th place. The juniors will now turn to super-G on Friday, Jan. 20th. You can watch the action live here:
