Alpine skiing: State championships first day

Section 9 champions Hans Poelmann of Warwick and Shiau-Tau Ciecierska of Roosevelt failed to finish slalom runs and were eliminated from medal contention at the races held on Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington, outside of Lake Placid.
The top area finishers were Cornwall’s Charles Manzari, who placed eighth among the boys, and Miranda Davenport of Rondout Valley, who placed 18th among the girls.
Ciecierska was leading the girls standings after one run but failed to finish the second run, taking her out of medal contention. Ciecierska completed her first run in 43.50 seconds, more than two seconds ahead of the field.
Hans Poelmann failed to finish his first run, as did D.J. Oldfield of Monticello, Cooper Cossano of Warwick and Zak Steingart of Fallsburg-Tri-Valley.
The giant slalom races will be held Tuesday.
