|Van, who took home her 13th national title on Saturday, said that while she still has some fine tuning to do, the second win has her excited with the way things are working out.|
"My jumps aren't as random they were and I know where I can go," Van said. "There's definitely room for improvement, but I am psyched with the two wins and how it's working out so far."
With the weekend of competition over, Van, along with her teammates, heads back to Utah for training. Johnson will remain in Lake Placid for a week of training prior to his return to Utah where, along with the women's team, the athletes will look forward to the return of winter competition in December.
