Crocker, Williams, Weier Return for a Last Shot at World Juniors Hardware, Baldock Leads Young Men’s Team.
Alison Crocker parlayed a couple of top ten overall finishes at the Chevrolet U.S. Cross-Country Championships into the top qualifying spot for the 2004 World Junior Team that was announced Monday by the U.S. Ski Team. The women’s team has a good chance to bring home the United States’s first ever World Juniors medal this year as Crocker is joined on the team by three former top twenty finishers at World Junior Championships. Lindsey Weier has her sights set on a podium finish in the classic race, while Lindsay Williams and Katie Ronsee are both medal contenders in the sprint. The men’s team will be lead by Beau Baldock. Baldock, fresh off a year living and training in Norway, won the junior 10k skate and sprint titles at the U.S. Cross-Country Championships. The World Junior Championships start February 3 in Stryn, NOR.
