American Hannah Halvorsen (Sugarbowl Academy) earned an impressive third-place finish in Saturday’s 5-kilometer freestyle individual start at the 2015 U18 Nations’s Cup Championships in Ornskoldsvik, Sweden. Halvorsen, who had a breakout performance at the 2015 U.S. Cross Country Championships with a fifth in the classic sprint earlier this year, finished 15.4 seconds behind race-winner Karoline Simpson-Larson (Il Vargar).

Teammates Zak Ketterson (Loppet Nordic Racing) and Max Donaldson (Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks) finished sixth and eighth, respectively, in the men’s 10 k also taking place Saturday.

In the previous day’s classic sprint competition Halvorsen finished fifth but was reportedly bumped up to fourth after a competitor was disqualified for skating. Lauren Jortberg (Boulder Junior Nordic) and Leah Brams (Cambridge Sports Union) joined Halvorsen in the heats in 25th and 30th. Ketterson, Kamran Husain (Stratton Mountain School), and Henry Harmeyer (Mt. Mansfield) were 22nd, 23rd, and 24th in the men’s race.

Sunday’s relay saw the two American men’s teams ski to fourth and ninth, while the women’s teams placed fifth and twelfth.
