Goldberg wins Super G at Eastern finals

NEWRY, Maine — Olympian and U.S. Ski Team member Jared Goldberg took first place in Super G for the second day in a row at the Eastern Cup Finals at Sunday River by registering a run of 1:04.80.

Fellow USST and 2014 Olympic medalist Andrew Weibrecht, a Dartmouth College product, placed second with a time of 1:05.18. Steven Nyman (USST and 2014 Olympian) took third place for the second day of Super G with at time of 1:05.56.

“Today was a little tighter and a little more swing. I’m not as good at that, so I had to gain some confidence. I cleared really clean but maybe turned a little bit. I’m happy,” Nyman said.

Nyman is coming off a solid season with a World Cup win in downhill. “I had the best season I ever had in downhill and ended up seventh in the world and that makes me hungry for next year.”

Said second-place finisher Weibrecht said, “The snow was really good. It was a good race.”

The top three U18 racers are Christian Gallager, 1:07.27, from Burke Mountain Academy, Jack Despres, 1:07.67, and Logan Slattery in third with at time of 1:07.74 both from the Green Mountain Valley School in Vermont.

Eastern Cup Finals continue this week. U.S. Ski Team members Weibrecht, Tommy Ford, A.J. Ginnes, Mark Engel, Kieffer Christianson, Brennan Rubie and David Chodounsky are expected to compete in giant slalom today and Thursday and slalom on Friday and Saturday.
