MARS HILL — Killian Lathrop won the Class B slalom Tuesday at Big Rock to lead Cape Elizabeth to the boys’ Alpine state championship.

A sophomore, Lathrop finished with a two-run time of 1 minute, 13.76 seconds to beat runner-up Jacob Roy of Wisdom by nearly a full second.

Cape Elizabeth finished the two-day event with 71 points. Yarmouth was second at 129, followed by Fort Kent and nine other schools.

Cape freshman Ian Geikie, who won Monday’s giant slalom, placed fifth in slalom in temperatures that reached 40 degrees.

The Fort Kent girls overcame a 17-point deficit after giant slalom to wrest the girls’ Alpine title from Yarmouth, 80-83. Maranacook was third at 122, followed by Spruce Mountain (149) and seven other schools.

Greenville senior Shelby Cowin added the slalom crown to her giant slalom victory on Monday, beating Yarmouth senior Greta Elder with a time of 1:19.52. Fort Kent placed three skiers among the top 10 and outscored the Clippers in slalom, 27-47.

The Class B and C Nordic meets are Thursday and Friday in Fort Kent.

Weather concerns prompted organizers to again alter the Class A meets. Nordic races are Thursday and Friday at Black Mountain in Rumford, but at new times, beginning at 2 p.m. for Thursday’s classical races and 9 a.m. for Friday’s freestyle races.

The Class A Alpine races are now scheduled for Friday and Saturday at separate venues. Giant slalom is Friday at Mt. Abram in Greenwood, and slalom is Saturday at Black Mountain.
