Saturday, Duke also held off Smed for the win. Duke's two-run time was 1:35.90 with Smed second in 1:36.02. Staples finished 19th with Caitlin Ciccone (Bethlehem, NH) 25th.

Duke, 22 and in her first year on the U.S. Ski Team, began her podiums run Jan. 1 in Melchsee-Frutt, Switzerland, when she was third. She came up through Idaho's McCall Ski Team and Park City Ski Team programs.

"Hailey's turned it on this year," said Women's SL/GS Head Coach Chris Knight. "We wanted her to have success at the Europa Cup level and she's certainly doing what we asked."
