JWCH & Besh Cup Recap

February 7, 2018

What a weekend we had! On Saturday Gus Schumacher anchored the US relay team win a historic second place at the Junior World Championship in Goms, Switzerland. We are all so proud of Gus’s incredible performance as the anchor leg and the entire US relay team for their achievement. This is the first US boys relay medal and best ever relay finish for the USA at JWCH.

This isn’t the first time that AWS skiers have made history overseas. In 2009, AWS skiers Andrew Dougherty, Tyler Kornfield and Scott Patterson made up the USA’s three-person relay team that earned a historic 2nd place at the Scandinavian U18 Cup in Foldal, Norway. Now AWS skiers are making history again at an even higher level with Gus’s relay medal and JWCH.
