Behind the offensive output of three high-scoring juniors, the Summit girls’ lacrosse team earned its second win in its first three games, 13-12 over Conifer Monday at home.
The Tigers trailed 8-5 at halftime but came firing back in the second, eventually getting the game-winner in the match’s final minute.
“It was a great win for us,” SHS head coach Kristen Elliott said. “They fought hard the whole game and kept the intensity up the whole way.”
Juniors Haley Anderson, Kelly Joyce and Ivey Marshall each had four goals in the victory. Sophomore goaltender Chelsea Christianson saved eight of 20 shots.
The Tigers (2-1, 0-0) are off until Saturday, when they travel to take on Green Mountain High School at 1 p.m.
After the first day of official play, one thing is certain about the young Summit baseball squad: The Tigers sure can score runs.
Summit crossed home 28 times Saturday in two games at Jefferson High School in Denver, winning the first contest 11-10 in extra innings and losing 25-17 in a Game 2 barnburner.
“All in all, it was a good start for our very young team which started four freshmen in each game,” Tiger coach Tom Looby said.
Freshman Anton Barlow got a key hit in the seventh inning of Game 1 for the Tigers, driving in a run and helping send the game to extras. He was 2-for-5 at the plate in the game.
Junior Gabe Stuhr pitched seven innings in the win, with senior Cody Holland filling in in relief. Holland went 2-4 with a double, Stuhr was 3-4 and junior Jason Looby went 4-5 with a double and four RBI.
In the second game, Summit’s pitching wore thin, giving up 12 runs in the final two innings. Still, the Tigers put on a clinic from the batter’s box. Freshman Creed Walker was 5-5 with a triple, Holland went 4-5 with two triples, and both Looby and Stuhr were 3-5.
Jesse Riotto became Summit High’s 100-meter dash record holder after running the distance in 11.96 seconds in Saturday’s first heat of the Liberty High Invite in Colorado Springs.
His time at the top was short-lived, though, as teammate Ridge Strickler ran a 11.80 in the second heat.
Strickler finished in 10th, and it was just one of the highlights for the Tiger track and field team in its season-opening meet.
Other top finishes went to Katherine Pappas (seventh in 3,200-meter run), Lisa Evans (ninth in high jump), Liam Meirow (10th in high jump), and Diane Mustin (eighth in shot put).
The Tigers also had four relay teams finish seventh or better.
