Press Release

Corinth, NY: The U.S. Snowshoe Association, headquartered in Corinth, NY, is pleased to announce the recent success of Team USA competing at the  2019 WSSF World Snowshoe Championships at the famous La Ciaspolada Snowshoe Race in the beautiful Val di Non region of northern Italy. More than 200 athletes, representing nearly 30 countries from all over the globe, competed on a man-made 8.2km course in the shadow of Italy’s Dolomite Mountains.

     In the Junior Men’s and Women’s 4.5km event, Team USA did very well claiming two new Junior World Snowshoe Championship titles; Jeremiah Vaille of CO and Jackie Wells of MA. Vaille, Andrew LePage (NY) and Owen Brandriss (MA) teamed up to capture the Men’s Team Silver medal behind host Italy. Wells, her sister Lilly Wells (MA) and Lexie Vaille (CO) captured the Junior Women’s Team Gold Medal. Lilly Wells also took the individual Junior Women’s Silver medal.

     In the 8.2km Senior Men’s and Women’s competition, USA’s Joseph Gray of CO claimed his second consecutive World Championship Runner-Up finish, this year to Italy’s Cesare Maestre. Gray was the World Championship Runner-Up in 2011 in Japan. Then, he won the World Title outright in 2017 on home snow in Saranac Lake NY, before claiming another Runner-up in 2018 in Spain. Team USA’s Michelle Hummel of New Mexico climbed the overall podium again with her Bronze medal run behind Italy’s Gold medalist Anna Laura Mugno and Runner-Up Isabella Morlini. Hummel was third in 2017 in NY and climbed to the very top of the podium in 2018, claiming her first World Snowshoe Championship title in 2018 in Spain. Displaying true “champion leadership”, Gray and Hummel led their respective Team USA teammates to team medal performances: Gray, Matt Lipsey of PA and Matt Medeiros of NY took the Men’s Silver Team medal in a tight battle with Spain and Canada. Hummel led Amber Ferreira of NH and Jennifer Britz Vandongen of ME to the Women’s Team Silver. Italy claimed both the Men’s and Women’s Team Golds. Spain also took the Women’s Team Bronze.
