Devin Logan failed to advance to the finals of the women’s freestyle skiing halfpipe competition at the Olympics early Monday in South Korea, falling near the end of her second and final qualifying run and finishing 15th.

Logan, who grew up in Oceanside before moving to Vermont for high school, needed to finish 12th to reach the finals Tuesday in South Korea, and she was on the bubble after the first round in 12th place after posting a score of 71.60.

But near the end of an otherwise clean second run, she took a tumble and received a 25.60 score. Other skiers surpassed her 71.60 on their second runs, pushing her out of the finals.

Logan’s parents, Jerry and Nancy, were in Pyeongchang for the competition. Nancy fell to her knees in disappointment after watching Devin’s fall.

Two days earlier, Logan had finished 10th in the slopestyle event — on her 25th birthday. She won a silver medal in that event in Sochi in 2014.

Logan was the only freestyle skier to compete in both the slopestyle and halfpipe competitions in Pyeongchang.
