Cordeau claims silver
in dual moguls

At Junior Olympics

Sun Valley Freestyle Team racer Shane Cordeau of Ketchum carried home a silver medal in dual moguls March 20 at the conclusion of the 2004 Chevy Truck Junior Olympic Freestyle Championships at Silver Mountain.

Wood River High School junior Cordeau, 17, son of pro mogul racers Joey Cordeau and Barb Cordeau of Ketchum, earned a score of 9.80 to finish behind dual moguls winner David Digravio on the final day of the five-day competition on the northern Idaho ski slope.

Coach John Zuck said about the concentration needed by dual mogul racers, "It was a really steep course, very challenging. In duals you ski against the course and against someone beside you."

In the March 19 moguls competition, former Sun Valley racer Kylie Douglas, 17, of Steamboat Springs, Colo. also captured a silver medal and won the F1 class.

Producing consistent results for Sun Valley at Silver Mountain was Sophia Schwartz. She was 10th in halfpipe, earning the bronze in her F3 class, and also picked up a F3 bronze with a 10th place in Big Air.

Schwartz was 32nd in moguls, 8th in aerials and finished up her week tied for 33rd in dual moguls. The only other top-10 finish for Sun Valley was posted by Collin Collins, who took 6th place in halfpipe March 16.

On Sunday, five Sun Valley competitors—Shane Cordeau, Christine Cordeau, Nic Hanscom, Katie Fieguth and Britt VanPaepeghem—finished mogul racing at the U.S. Freestyle Nationals in Heavenly Valley, Ca. Hanscom finished 23th in single moguls and Fieguth 28th, while both Cordeaus and Hanscom made the cut in duals.
