Brandon’s Cassie Hawrysh races in her first world championship today.

The 28-year-old Neelin high school graduate competes in the women’s world skeleton championship in St. Moritz, Switzerland, with two runs today and two tomorrow. Hawrysh, who is currently ranked eighth on the elite World Cup circuit and ninth overall in the world rankings, has had a superb rookie season on the tour, topped by a pair of fourth-place finishes.

Meanwhile, 33-year-old Jon Montgomery of Russell is also competing at the world championships, with the 2010 Olympic men’s champion ranked 10th overall in the world and ninth on the top World Cup tour. Montgomery struggled early this season as he tried out some new sleds, but has placed in the top 10 in each of his last four races, with his best showing a sixth-place finish.

Following the worlds, Hawrysh and Montgomery will head to Sochi, Russia — site of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games — to race in the season’s final stop on the World Cup tour, slated for Feb. 15-16.
