Victoria Tostemar, Ava Murphy and Ruben Jeffers won three races apiece in recent competition at the Alyeska Cup alpine race series at Alyeska Resort in Girdwood.

Tostemar and Murphy grabbed all of the victories in six U14 girls races, and in four of them they went 1-2. Each collected a win in each discipline — slalom, giant slalom and super-G.

Jeffers was the only U14 boys to win multiple races. He won a slalom, a giant slalom and a super-G, and in the races he didn’t win, he placed third.

Other boys winners were Carson Engstrom (super-G), Jaxon Murphy (giant slalom) and Tad Guse (slalom).

In U12 slalom racing, Ava Huey won both girls races and boys titles went to Levi Jeffers and Pierre-Samuel Stiassny.

The Alyeska Cup continues Sunday and Monday with races for older skiers.
