Women’s Team Finishes Strong in Killington Giant Slalom
In the Heroic Killington Cup presented by Stifel, an Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup, the Stifel U.S. Alpine Team women’s tech team showed great depth, placing four in the top 30. Mikaela Shiffrin was the top finisher, finishing in 13th.
It was a sunny and windy day in Vermont, but that did not stop the women from giving it their all on the track. Katie Hensien scored her first World Cup GS points in her career, finishing 27th.
“It feels really good, especially here in Killington with a home crowd," said Hensien. "I gave it my all first run and pretty much shocked myself."
Paula Moltzan and Nina O’Brien also scored points, finishing 18th and 23rd, respectively. The crowds did not disappoint either with 21,000 in attendance on Saturday, making it one of the most attended races in the event's history.
AJ Hurt, Allie Resnick and Ava Sunshine also started the giant slalom, but did not qualify for a second run.
The women will be back in action for a slalom race on Sunday to wrap up one of the best weekends on the World Cup circuit.
