Nominations article takes from USA Nordic article here.
Congrats to NYSEF athletes and Alums for being named to the 2020-2021 USA Nordic Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined National and Junior National Teams! Some excerpts from the USA Nordic article are below as well.
Womens Nordic Combined National Team
Tara Geraghty-Moats (Nordic Combined)
“Tara Geraghty-Moats (West Fairlee, Vt.) added to her trophy case this past winter, winning the Overall Continental Cup for the second year in a row. Though at times plagued by injury and sickness, her 2019-20 campaign included seven Continental Cup podiums, five of those being victories. Next season Geraghty-Moats will lead a young team of women’s nordic combined athletes towards an exciting calendar which includes a World Cup debut in December and the inaugural World Championship event in Oberstdorf, Germany in February. Geraghty-Moats, who served as an ambassador at the Youth Olympic Games, continues to be an outspoken advocate for the inclusion of women’s nordic combined in the Olympic Winter Games.”
Womens Ski Jumping National Team
