Posted: Monday, March 23, 2009

NOME - There are still 11 mushers struggling for the Iditarod finish line in Nome.

As of Sunday morning, 42 mushers had reached Nome, four days after Lance Mackey won his third straight Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race title.

Fourteen mushers have either scratched or withdrawn from the 1,100-mile sled dog race.

The latest is David Sawatzky of Healy, who scratched Saturday between Safety and Nome. Race officials said the 56-year-old musher quit after he had been leading his team, or walking in front of them, for a number of miles.
