Summit High School spring sports wrap-up
In an up-and-down week for spring sports at Summit High School, the girls lacrosse team led the charge with a dominating 19-0 win at Steamboat Springs.
“It was a great game,” Tiger head coach Kristin Sposato said.
The win puts the lady Tigers at 1-0 in league play and 2-3 on the season. Sposato said the win came thanks to a strong and consistent team effort with 10 different players contributing scores.
She said they hope to carry the strong effort into the rest of the in-conference schedule. The lady Tigers will host Green Mountain High School Wednesday and then travel for a matchup against St. Mary’s Academy Saturday, April 5.
Boys Lacrosse: The Tiger boys team split road games this week with a 12-1 loss at Battle Mountain Wednesday, followed by a 9-6 win over Overland High School on Friday, March 28. With the win, the boys team went to 3-5 on the season, 2-3 in league play. The Tigers will host Machebeuf Tuesday, April 1, then travel to Aspen Thursday, April 3.
Girls Soccer: It was a challenging week for the Summit girls soccer team as they fell to league powerhouse Battle Mountain 5-0, Thursday, March 26, and 2-1 in overtime against Delta, Saturday, March 29. The Tigers earned a little bit of redemption after being blown out 10-0 in their first meeting with Battle Mountain. Summit managed to hold the Huskies scoreless for the first 30 minutes of play, but were unable to hold on. The team game against Delta was more of a heart breaker, according to head coach Tommy Gogolen.
“It was a tough one,” he said. “Unfortunately they outplayed us. They were able to squeak one by in double overtime.”
The Tigers went into the half down 1-0, but were able to find the equalizer early in the second.
“We had a good game plan going into the second half,” Gogolen said. “We were right back in the game. Our goal keeper, Lexi, had a lot of great saves.”
With the loss, the team fell to 1-6 on the year. They’ll hope to turn things around this week when they host Glenwood Thursday and St. Mary’s Saturday, April 5.
Track: The Summit track team had the week off. They will resume competition this week with back-to-back meets Friday, April 4 at Fort Collins and Saturday, April 5 at Eagle Valley.
Baseball: Saturday’s Tiger baseball doubleheader in Craig against Steamboat Springs was postponed due to snow on the field. The team will travel to Battle Mountain Tuesday, April 1, and then head to Delta for a game Saturday, April 5.
