Sister, sister – Two LWSD sisters earn silver medals at national mountain bike event
What’s better than one Artz sister winning a silver medal? Two Artz sisters winning silver medals. Lily Artz, Finn Hill Middle School seventh grader, and Emma Artz, Juanita High School senior, each took home second place at the recent USA Cycling National Championships in Winter Park, Colo. The championships featured a brand new High School Cycling Festival that allows younger riders to get a head start on future competitions. The sisters each competed in the downhill mountain bike racing portion of the festival. According to the USA Cycling website, the festival, open to all high school riders and their families, will provide opportunities to participate in ride events, seminars, and clinics; meet college and university representatives, and represent their schools in the High School Mountain Bike National Championships.
