Area ski teams, both boys and girls, proved to be no match for host Marquette at the Division 1 state finals on Monday.

The Marquette boys team ran away with its fourth straight state title, registering 22 points to obliterate the field thanks to four skiers that placed one through four in the slalom and three skiers who placed in the top-four in the giant slalom.

Traverse City Central was way behind in second with 90 points and Bloomfield Hills was the highest finisher from the southeast part of the state, finishing third with 135 points.

Clarkston was fourth with 154 points and Lakeland took fifth at 185.

Individually, Ryan Stewart of Bloomfield Hills was seventh in both the slalom and giant slalom, Tucker Pfaff of Birmingham was ninth in the slalom, Mitch Goodman of Novi was ninth in the giant slalom while Max Wiedemann of Clarkston was 10th in the slalom.

The Marquette girls team also reigned as champions, although it was a little bit closer.

Marquette accumulated 84 points to finish ahead of runner-up Birmingham Marian, which finished with 101 points.

Milford was the next-highest area finisher, placing fifth with 183 points.

There was a lot of individual success from the southeast part of the state though, starting with the fact that six Oakland County skiers finished in the top-10 in the giant slalom.

North Farmington’s Amelie Perez won the event in a time of 1:02.66, ahead of Kate Bridges of Birmingham United, who was second with a time of 1:03.02.

Anna Geyer of South Lyon was fourth, Olivia Weymouth of Marian was fifth, Grace Stetsko of Lake Orion was seventh and Morgan Watts of Milford was eighth.

In the slalom, Natalie Kerwin of Milford was fourth, Weymouth was fifth, Geyer was seventh and Breann Lunghamer of Marian was eighth.
