Lake Tahoe alpine racer AJ Hurt picked up her first career World Cup points in super-G, finishing 26th during Sunday’s race at Saint Anton, Austria.

The 20-year-old Squaw Valley Ski Team racer was second among skiers from the U.S. Alpine Ski Team, posting a time of 1 minute, 21.02 seconds.

Switzerland’s Lara Gut-Behrami, 29, claimed first place with a time of 1:17.82. Isabella Wright, 23, led the U.S. team with a time of 1:20.83 to finish in 24th. Squaw Valley skier Keely Cashman, 21, crashed during training in Partenkirchen, Germany, which forced her out of the race at Saint Anton.

“Sad to say that I took a bit of a spill in training the other day and will have to sit out the upcoming races … I’m feeling good for the most part,” said Cashman in a post to Instagram.

Hurt continued to pile up World Cup points this week with a 29th place finish on Tuesday in slalom at Flachau, Austria. She has now scored World Cup points across four disciplines — parallel, giant slalom, slalom, and super-G.

Women’s World Cup racing is slated to continue with a pair of giant slalom events this weekend at Kranjska Gora, Slovenia.
