Results from 2016 Keystone BME, Quickstick Lacrosse Tourney and more
Quickstick Lacrosse Tournament — July 9-10
The second edition of an annual adult lacrosse tournament, held on Saturday and Sunday at Kingdom Park and nearby fields in Breckenridge. The event drew 12 teams from across the state, including local crews Summit Lacrosse Club and 10th Mountain Whiskey of Vail. All teams played at least two games on Saturday to determine seeding for Sunday’s tournament, which was played as a single-elimination tourney.
When all was said and done, Alpha Mavs took the title, beating Team MCB in the afternoon championship game.
Alpine Aerials Invite — Silverthorne Storm Gymnastics, July 9
A regular-season youth gymnastics meet, hosted by Alpine Aerials of Fraiser. Along with the home team, the event drew five teams: Gymstarz of the Greeley area, Gunnison, Cats of Boulder, A+ Athletics of Englewood and Silverthorne.
The meet was relatively small, said Silverthorne head coach Ben Way, and so his team made multiple trips to the podium and finished with 34 first-place finishes. A few highlights from the coach:
In this league, you move to more competitive levels with better individual scores: Holly Visser joins Lilly Hess as Optional 2’s. Holly hit her second all-around (AA) score over 29 to compete O-2 at regional and state meets.
On the compulsory team (the highest level of youth competition), three Comp-3 girls placed well enough to compete as Super 3’s at regionals this weekend: Stephanie Fuentes, Sophie Brower and Scout Murphy. Sierra Durloo made the move to Super 4’s earlier this year.
As a whole, the team is putting together more connections and hitting routines. This is important with regionals at Overland High School on July 15-16 and again at state on July 22-23.
Noteworthy Silverthorne Storm finishes
Ella Snyder — First place, AA (first ever)
Scout Murphy — First place, AA (first ever)
Scarlett Murphy — First place, AA (first ever)
Bryton Ferrari — First place, AA (first ever)
Morgan Fields — Second place, AA (improved by three points)
