SHS roundup: Girls’ lacrosse tops Battle Mountain
Ryan Summerlin April 26, 2012
Summit’s Lady Tigers came up big in Wednesday’s 12-10 win over Battle Mountain in Edwards.
As usual the team was led by D1-bound Ivy Marshall, who logged another double hat trick. Kates Raymond offered support with four goals of her own. Tucker Hackett and Rachel Barton also had a goal apiece.
“As a team we learned how to control the game by slowing down on attack and pressuring on defense,” said head coach Kristin Elliott. “Our team it strong right now and Ivy has really been outstanding. Kates Raymond has been excelling and improving at each game. We played as a team and it showed.”
The Lady Tigers were up 7-5 at the half, but the girls continued keep up the attack and win the draw controls.
“This part of the game we have really improved on and it has shown,” Elliot said.
The team hopes to make it three in a row and keep the excitement going until the end of the season. They play at home on Friday against Grand Junction, which is another league game, at 4 p.m.
Their coach was also impressed with the JV’s performance and said the outlook is great for the future of the program.
“Having the JV girls come to play gives us a good idea of how next year will be,” Elliot said. “I have already been talking to the girls about the skills needed to work on over the summer, and next year we will be ready to go. We have a great group of underclassmen ready and willing to learn what they can to improve. I love having all the girls there and teaching them little things from game to game.”
The Summit High baseball team lost its second home game of the season to Valor Christian High School, 11-0, Wednesday.
Thomas DeBonville slammed two hits. DeBonville and Jake Latta pitched for the Tigers, who could not string enough hits together to create a rally.
The Tigers next game will be at Green Mountain High School on Saturday at 11:00 am.
As an added bonus to the dry conditions that have already allowed for two unexpected home games on the Frisco peninsula, Battle Mountain (Edwards) has agreed to relocate the game scheduled for May 8 to Summit County, for one last Tiger home game (at least until the next drought).
