O'Shea tops Graybill in skeleton trials; Antoine remains dominant on men's side


LAKE PLACID, New York — Annie O'Shea won the second race in the U.S. women's skeleton team trials Friday, topping Savannah Graybill in a reversal of the opening-day results.

O'Shea finished two runs Friday in 1 minute, 51.64 seconds, edging Graybill by 0.13 seconds. Megan Henry was third in 1:52.85.

O'Shea and Graybill are now big favorites to claim the two available women's spots on the U.S. World Cup roster to start the season.

Olympic bronze medalist Matt Antoine has one of three men's spots already clinched. He prevailed for the second straight day in 1:47.45, well ahead of Kyle Tress (1:49.12) and Kyle Brown (1:50.01).

The series continues in Park City, Utah, on Nov. 7-8. USA Luge's national championships start in Lake Placid on Saturday.
