Marshall uncovers silver

Enderby’s Alysson Marshall records double-silver at the Haywood NorAm Nordic Skiing event in Rossland.

Enderby’s Alysson Marshall recorded double-silver at the Haywood NorAm Nordic Skiing event last weekend in Rossland.

Marshall, a former Sovereign Lake Nordic Club skier, now with the Alberta World Cup Academy, finished the 10-kilometre mass start skate event in 28 minutes, 51.7 seconds. She was runner-up to U.S. skier Jessica Diggins (27:36.8).

Vernon’s Heather Mehain (31:40.1) finished 24th.

In men’s action, Matt Wylie, Marshall’s cousin, ranked 28th in the 15-km mass start with a 37:32.3.

In the 1.4-km skate sprints, Marshall again finished second behind Diggins, clocking a 3:16.66. Mehain placed 16th with a 3:30.21.

Wylie was 30th in the men’s 1.6-km sprint in 3.25.41.

At an earlier NorAm event at Sovereign, Marshall took first in the sprint qualifier, and was second overall in the main event. She added a seventh-place finish in the 10-km classic distance.

Marshall spent the earlier part of the season racing on the world cup circuit in Europe, most recently in Dusseldorf.
