James Southam of Eagle River, Alaska was 12th in Sunday’s Engadin, FIS marathon World Cup race. Southam was 11 seconds behind the winner, Austria’s Mikhail Botvinov.
Italians Marco Cattaneo and Roberto De Zolt was second and third, one second behind the winner. Other Americans: Zack Simons, 62nd, 5.47 out
A trio of American junior girls also did very well in the women's race, as they swept the podium in the junior division. Taz Mannix was top junior (10th overall), Morgan Arritola was second (11th) and Liz Stephen was third (13th). This was Stephen's first ski marathon, and likely was a first for the others as well.
