Jaelin Kauf earned her third moguls National Championship title today on the infamous Lower Bobbies run at the Toyota U.S. Freestyle Moguls Championships at Waterville Valley Resort. 

The East Coast endured a ferocious winter storm that dropped over 10 inches on the resort overnight. To ensure a fair and consistent event, the format was modified to one qualification run instead of two for the 59 athletes. However, the conditions did not damper the day for the Stifel U.S. Freestyle Ski Team women’s moguls athletes, sweeping the top six in each round of today’s competition. Wearing bib 1, Kauf held on to the top position throughout the day, never losing her lead. This is Kauf’s sixth National Championship win across moguls and dual moguls, five of which came from Waterville.

Just behind Kauf was Kasey Hogg, a Connecticut native who put down consistently strong runs throughout the day. She finished just 0.33 points off the top box. Tess Johnson rounded out the podium, finishing third, earning her sixth career national championship podium. 

The junior podium was led by Stifel U.S. Freestyle Ski Team member Elizabeth Lemley, who finished fourth overall. The podium was completed by Reese Chapdelaine of Ski & Snowboard Club Vail in second and Olivia Maurais from the Winter Park Competition Center in third.
