Community sports roundup: Snohomish student wins skiing title

Junior Tyler Larson won the Northwest Cup men’s points championship at Stevens Pass on April 7.

It was a big day for Tyler Larson at the Stevens Pass Ski Area two weekends ago.

Larson, a junior at Snohomish High School who skis for the Stevens Pass Alpine Club, capped off his best competitive ski season as he claimed the 2018-19 Northwest Cup men’s points championship following the finals held April 4-7 at Stevens Pass.

Larson was the runaway points champion as he finished with 880 points, far more than the second-place finisher, Tanner Lujan of the Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation, who finished with 553.

Larson finished the season with a flourish, too, as he took first in the slalom race and second in both the giant slalom and super-G at finals. He finished as the overall points champion in slalom and giant slalom and third overall in downhill, which wasn’t raced in the finals.

Teegan Lowe, a senior at Monroe High School, also had a big week, taking first in both the women’s giant slalom and super-G races and second in the slalom.

Lowe, who races for the Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation, finished second in the women’s point standings with 585, falling just short of Team Alpental Snoqualmie’s Emma Ireton, who placed first with 666. Lowe finished second despite skiing an abbreviated Northwest Cup schedule. She placed first overall in super-G.

In the team competitions the Stevens Pass Alpine Club, which features several competitors from Snohomish County, placed third in both the men’s and women’s competitions to take second overall.
