GOODE skiers claim titles at Junior U.S. Open

Brooke Baldwin (l) and Bailey Austin took first and second in junior Girl’s slalom, respectively.

GOODE skiers dominated the 15th Lake Dwellers Junior U.S. Open held last weekend in Scott, Ark., claiming seven of 12 slalom medals and the junior Boy’s and Girl’s overall titles.

Brooke Baldwin continued her fantastic spring by winning junior Girl’s slalom with a Junior U.S. Open record of 2 buoys at 39-1/2 off, and claiming the Girl’s overall and jumping titles as well. Baldwin was joined in the Girl’s slalom top five by her fellow GOODE skiers Bailey Austin (2nd), Ruth McCreary (4th) and her sister Kristen Baldwin (5th), who also took second in overall.

Quinn Haines took third in junior Boy’s slalom and first in jump on his way to the overall title, while Zach Montavon joined Haines in the top three of Boy’s slalom with a second-place finish.

In Junior Men’s and Women’s slalom, GOODE skiers Dane Mechler (2nd), Cole McCormick (3rd) and Abbi Grathwohl (3rd) all earned top-three finishes. McCormick finished third in junior Men’s overall.

WaterSki coverboy: Dorien Llewellyn

By anyone’s standards, skiing into 39-1/2 feet off on Robin Lake, defending your Junior Masters overall title and getting a twitter shout out from Olympic and World Cup star Lindsey Vonn would be a pretty good week.

But for Team GOODE Junior skier Dorien Llewellyn, that was just a start.

Home from his huge weekend in Georgia, Dorien got news that he’d be gracing the cover of the next issue of WaterSki magazine.

Not too bad Dorien, not too bad.
