Bascue third at national team trials

W hitehall’s Codie Bascue had a strong showing at the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation’s two-man bobsled national team selection races held at Mount Van Hoevenberg in Lake Placid last Saturday.

Bascue teamed with Nic Taylor of Hayward, Calif., to finish in third place with a two-run total of 1:55.04.

The duo had a fast opening heat, finishing only six-hundredths of a second behind the first-place team of Nick Cunningham and Johnny Quinn. And while their second heat wasn’t as clean, they finished seven-tenths of a second ahead of the fourth-place team.

Cunningham and Quinn won the event with a two-run total of 1:54.51 and Cory Butner and Jesse Beckom finished second in 1:54.58.

The top U.S. pilot, Steven Holcomb, was granted a bye based on his performance in last year’s world championships.

Bascue, a 2012 graduate of Whitehall High School, will compete in the four-man national team trials today (Oct. 24).

Amanda Bird, marketing and communications director for the USBSF, said the national team will be named on Saturday. She said Holcomb has already received a spot on the team, leaving only two open spots for pilots.
