MONT GABRIEL, Quebec — Aerialist Jaime Myers of Boise, Idaho, who recently was named to the U.S. C team, swept both NorAm events over the weekend to lead U.S. skiers, who won six of eight competitions at Mont Gabriel.
Reigning moguls world champ Hannah Kearney and David Babic, idled by the gap in World Cup action, started the parade of success Thursday by sweeping the moguls events. Jay Bowman-Kirigin won the men’s dual moguls contest Friday and in addition to Myers’ two aerials victories, Dylan Ferguson was the men’s winner Saturday. Ferguson also recently was named to the C team.

In the men’s event, Olivier Rochon of Canada won (179.18) with Scott Kiesel second and Ferguson fourth.
Saturday, it was a U.S. sweep with Ferguson winning the men's contest with 184.00 points while Myers and Sciuto also went 1-2; Myers had 140.98 points to 123.63 for Sciuto.
Friday, Bowman-Kirigin led the qualifying round and defeated Patrick Deneen for the duals win as U.S. skiers took the top five places. Bryon Wilson completed the podium. In the women’s competition, Canadian Jackie Brown stopped McKenzy Golding for the win with Kayla Snyderman in third place.
Opening the four days of competition, Kearney breezed to the moguls win with 26.12 points. Snyderman was second in the field of 38 at 23.69. Babic led the field of 55 men with 26.39 while Bowman-Kirigin had 25.88 and Wilson came in third at 25.80.
