Summit loses rare home game

SILVERTHORNE – Summit High School softball stumbled at home for the first time since its first game of the season Saturday, falling to Alameda 8-3.

The Tigers fell behind early and were unable to rally, something they did Thursday in a 5-3 win over Ralston Valley.

“Our hitting didn’t match our defense,” Tigers head coach Shelly Koehler said. “We had people on base, but timely hitting didn’t really occur today. We just couldn’t pull them in.”

The Tigers fell to 2-2 in Class 4A Jeffco League play and to 9-3 overall.

Megen Skulski helped Summit’s cause with a triple, while junior Shannon Buhler stayed hot and added a double.

Tuesday, Summit travels to Conifer, the No. 1 ranked team in 4A.

“They’re very consistent, just like all the teams in this league,” Koehler said.

“We’ll need to put some runs on the board.”

Game time is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
