PLATTSBURGH - The US luge "D" team includes three locals: Kwang-Rei Baek, 15, of Plattsburgh, Courtney Yando, 12, of Brainardsville, and Tristan Jeskanen, 15, of Peru. All three entered the sport after their parents saw advertisements for events allowing children to ride wheeled-luge sleds. The trio enter the Empire State Games and nationals every year.
