Resi Stiegler and Tim Jitloff win Sprint/Ski Racing Junior of the Year awardsNow in its 30th year, the Sprint/Ski Racing Junior of the Year Award is one of the sport’s great traditions, the only award of its kind, given every year to two outstanding juniors (one male, one female) nominated and selected by a panel including Ski Racing editors and U.S. Ski Team alumni.

This year’s winners, Resi Stiegler and Tim Jitloff, were honored at the annual parent-athlete banquet at the U.S. Alpine National Championships at Mammoth Mountain, California. Each received a silver platter engraved with the names of the former winners (see below).

Jitloff thanked his parents, while Stiegler thanked her serviceman and then gave emotional recognition to the late Shelley Glover, a teammate who was killed in a ski accident last spring.

Jitloff is a product of the Sugar Bowl Ski Team, while Stiegler is from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Both spent time with the Park City program before jumping to the European ski scene, and both ski on Dynastar (where the U.S. race director is Tim Curran, himself a former recipient of the award).
