The USA Wildwater Junior Team and the Junior Pre-Worlds

by John Pinyerd

Wildwater Committee Chair

September 15, 2004 -- Atlanta, GA

We are extremely proud of the success of the USA Wildwater Junior Team at the Junior Pre-Worlds which were held July 29 through August 1 in Vipiteno Italy. Geoff Calhoun, Nic Borst, Lisa Adams, Emily Stein, Perrin Pring, and Tom Gray all had finishes that they should feel very proud of. Tom Gray had a very solid top ten finish.

With a top ten finish, the race also served as a season finale for Geoff Calhoun. Geoff improved by ten percent or more over the course of the season and emerged as America's top K-1 (junior or senior).

The USA Jr. team is also deeply appreciative to Maurizio Tognacci who served as coach and an inspiration, and helped Team USA learn the river. As always, Chris Wiegand did a superb job as Junior Team Manager and coach.

We look forward to sending another great team to Vipiteno for next years Junior Worlds.

Check out the results from Vipiteno.
