Megan McJames earns GS gold
USSA News Bureau
SQUAW VALLEY, Calif. (March 23) Two-time Olympian Megan McJames (Park City) capped an outstanding week of Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships racing with an FIS giant slalom win at Squaw Valley.
Under postcard-perfect California skies, McJames won both runs to build up a 1.58 second victory over fellow Olympian Resi Stiegler (Jackson Hole, Wyo.), who narrowly missed the U.S. Championships slalom win just a day before.
"I think Squaw did a really good job with the hill here," McJames said. "After the first GS we had here I was really excited to try it again, because it’s challenging and I wanted to ski my best GS on a hard hill because it would feed my confidence."
Anna Marno (Steamboat Springs, Colo.) rounded out the top three.
The Park City High School softball team is winning, and that’s news. It’s been close to a decade since they recorded a winning season.
