As Summit High head tennis coach Sean Carlton said, it was a tough week for the Tiger squad.

Although, he’s simply referring to the team’s schedule, not the results it had.

After a 7-0 win Thursday over Thomas Jefferson High School, the Tigers won three out of four matches this week to finish off the regular season on a high note.

“It’s hard to keep it going with four matches in four days, but the girls did a great job,” Carlton said after Thursday’s win.

Summit lost a narrow match to Wheat Ridge on Monday, then downed Englewood, Conifer and Jefferson in three straight days.

On Thursday, the Tigers had to overcome some early deficits to sweep the match.

In the No. 3 singles, Amy Modglin lost the first set 6-3, before rebounding to take the final two 6-0 and 6-2.

Melissa Gordon and Julie Arbuckle lost the first set in the No. 2 doubles match, but then came back to dominate the rest of the way for the win.

In the other matches, Julie Oberriter won easily at No. 1 singles, Jessica Covaciu won a hard-fought match in the second singles match, and Ania Zawadzki and Sophia Bolt won 6-0, 6-2 in the No. 1 doubles match.

Melissa Chumbley and Christina Fernandez won the No. 3 doubles match, and Kenzie Morgan and Amanda Moore won the No. 4 match.

The Tigers now prepare for the regional tournament May 6 in Grand Junction.

Carlton likes the way his team is playing heading into the meet and feels his team has an advantage having not played any of the mountain teams in the regional. (Summit plays in the Jeffco League.)

“All of our girls have a chance to make it to state as long as they keep their attitudes right,” Carlton said. “If you have a good attitude, you’re going to be in every match you play.”

The Summit High baseball team lost 16-2 Wednesday at D’Evelyn, a day after falling 15-0 to Alameda.

The Tigers lone senior, Tucker Limbruner, helped the team in both contests, pitching three solid innings Tuesday and stealing a base on Wednesday.

Wolf Virostek came in for relief pitching in both games, and head coach Tom Looby said he “pitched well.”

Brian Bossert and Jason Looby got hits for the Tigers, and Cody Holland and Nick Berry scored Summit’s only runs in the games.

The Tigers’ game Thursday at Golden was canceled due to weather, but they are back in action today with a game at Englewood at 3:30 p.m.
