Four Eastern Washington were in top form in the U.S. National Cross Country Skiing Championship races this week at the former Olympic course at Soldier Hollow, Utah.
Erik Bjornsen, 22, of Winthrop finished first in the men's 15-kilometer freestyle.
His sister, Sadie Bjornsen, 24, finished second in the women's 10k freestyle and second in the classic sprint.
Torin Koos of Wenatchee won the men's classic sprint, his seventh U.S. nordic title.
Annie Pokorny, 20, of Spokane finished fourth in the women's 10k freestyle.
Pokorny, who developed her skills as a teenager with the Spokane Junior Nordic Ski Team, left Lewis and Clark High School to complete her senior year in Sun Valley where she trained with national-class junior skiers. She's skiing collegiately at Middlebury College and has a shot at being named to a U.S. international team.
Sadie Bjornsen, Koos and Pokorny all have the distinction of winning top female or male titles as teenagers at the annual 10K Spokane Langlauf at Mount Spokane.
