SOLIDER HOLLOW, Utah - St Olaf junior Jake Brown finished 11th in the men's 30 kilometer freestyle race at the US National Championships on Sunday.

As the race progressed, Brown continually moved up through the field. By the last of six 5-kilometer laps, he was skiing in the top three collegiate athletes in the race, among whom he ultimately finished second. The race also counted for Brown's first win in the Central Collegiate division.

Sophomore Evan Kendall competed in the junior division (U20) ten kilometer freestyle race. Posting one of his best results so far this season, Kendall finished 49th in the 94 person field.

The Oles next compete in the CCSA Race in Telemark, Wisconsin on January 18th and 19th.
