The sophomore took second place in the 300-meter hurdles, finishing just six-hundredths of a second behind winner Kaitlyn Houghton of Calice.

Fellow sophomore Tiger teammate Anna Confer joined Stimson in the top 10 with an eighth-place finish (1.60) and one point for the team.

On the boys side, junior Lorenzo Lucia posted two top-10 finishes and earned the boys side six of their eight total points with his second-place finish in the boys 400-meters.

Boys Lacrosse

The Summit High boys lacrosse team split two of three games in their return from spring break, defeating Vail Mountain twice in three days, by a combined score of 17-12, before losing to Conifer 8-4 on Saturday.

In the Tuesday, April 24 win over the Gore Rangers, Summit senior goaltender Sawyer March posted 16 saves while junior midfielder Max Duxbury led the Tigers with eight ground balls. On the offensive end, Summit senior attack/midfielder Vale Hildebrand went off for six goals and one assist.

Two days later, this time back at home, the Gore Rangers managed to keep Hildebrand from finding the back of the net, but Duxbury broke out for three goals, one assist and four more ground balls. In net, the senior March saved 18 of 22 shots on goal and contributed a team-high nine ground balls of his own.

In the loss to Conifer, only four of the Tigers' 24 shots on goal found the back of the net, Duxbury scoring twice. In net, March's efforts to save two-thirds of the Lobos 24 shots on net wasn't enough.

The Tigers (8-4, 5-3) were back in action Tuesday for their final home game of the season, results for which were too late for the Summit Daily print edition. Their final game of the regular season will be Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. at Battle Mountain, before state playoff preliminary rounds begin May 10.

Baseball

The Tigers baseball team returned after spring break to split a doubleheader last week on the road at Palisade, dropping the opener 8-2 before using a monster third inning to defeat Palisade 12-7.

In the night-cap win, the Tigers received three runs from senior second baseman Max Hess, who also added a home run. Summit stole six total bases in the contest, as an early 10-0 lead was too much for the Bulldogs to overcome. In the opener, Palisade received consistent offensive production through the middle innings, pulling away from the Tigers 8-1 after Summit opened the top half of the first frame with a run.

The Tigers (7-6, 3-3 league) were in action Tuesday afternoon with a doubleheader at Battle Mountain, results late for the Summit Daily print edition. The Tigers will round out the week with six games in four days this weekend, at Steamboat on Friday (3/5 p.m.) and at Glenwood on Monday (2/4 p.m.).

McCann's fellow senior Piper Kunst also scored in the second half while, in net, sophomore Anna Tomlinson showed her versatility in stopping seven of nine shots-on-goal.

The Tigers (5-8, 3-7), were back in action Tuesday at 6 p.m. on the road at Glenwood Springs, results for which were too late for the Summit Daily print edition. The Tigers return home for Senior Night Thursday at 4 p.m. versus Eagle Valley.
