— In a reversal of their finishes in the previous day's slalom, Stephanie Lebby of the U.S. Academy Team on Thursday topped Isabella Wright of Intermountain at Alyeska Ski Resort to win the girls super-G on the final day of the U16 Western Region alpine championships.

On the boys side, Luke Winters of Far West, claimed super-G superiority to add to the third-place slalom result he seized Tuesday on the opening day of the championships in Girdwood.

The super-G events for both genders were originally scheduled for Friday, but were pushed forward one day by the prospect of inclement weather.

Lebby on Friday was clocked in 1 minutes, 18.22 seconds to top runner-up Wright (1:18.88) and third-place finisher Haley Culter of Intermountain (1:19.57).

The top Alaska girl in the super-G was Juliette Parke, who skis for Intermountain because she trains in Utah now, with her eighth-place finish in 1:20.87. Parke won Tuesday's giant slalom. Alaska's Margo Lane finished 16th in 1:22.47.

Winters' time of 1:15.87 gave him a 1.01-second edge on Tanner Lujan of Pacific Northwest (1:16.88). Ian Griffith of Intermountain earned third place in 1:17.24.

The best finish by an Alaska boy came from Garrett Mashburn, who was 41st in 1:22.38.

The U16s also featured combined champions, determined by point totals from all three races.

Michael Cooper of Far West, who won both the slalom and giant slalom, and finished 14th in the super-G, won the boys combined title. Jordan Cashman of Far West was second and Ian Griffith of Intermountain took third. The top Alaskan overall was Mashburn in 14th.

Molly Leavens of the U.S. Academy Team leveraged fourth-place finishes in both the slalom and super-G, and a runner-up in the giant slalom, to seize the girls combined title. Cutler finished second and Maureen Lebel of Far West took third. The top Alaskan was Lane in fifth overall.
