Lukas, Namrita and Josh - 5th D1 Team Relay

Lukas, Namrita and Josh – 5th D1 Team Relay

The team had a killer time at Nationals in Beech Mountain, NC this past weekend. With a cold snowy start to the weekend, it finally warmed up come Sunday in time for Lukas Grob, Joshua Longenecker and Namrita O’Dea to earn a 5th place medal in the Division 1 Team Relay! Namrita also placed 19th in the Short Track race on Friday even after a spill, redeeming herself with a solid 10th in the women’s D1 XC race on Saturday. Lukas Grob and Joshua Longenecker placed 20th and 46th respectively in Short Track and 31st and 38th in XC. A fantastic showing by our Yellow Jackets, two years in a row!

Great job team and many thanks to the Longenecker family for all the help this weekend. We couldn’t have done it without your support!
