“I was really happy with my run and couldn’t have asked for anything better,” said Olympics skier Devin Logan. “I skied one of my best days today even with everything: the conditions, the slushiness, seeing a lot of girls go down. I put it down and wouldn’t take it back. I felt great.”

“I just like to have fun so I started dancing up there [on the top of the course],” Logan sahared. “I was rapping a little bit and just taking it like any other day. I was in the springtime with my friends having fun and just wanted to put down a run. I did that and I couldn’t ask for anything better.”

All three American athletes advanced to the final round, where Keri Herman (Bloomington, MN) finished 10th and Julia Krass (Hanover, NH) 11th.
