Tigers flattened on road trip to No. 2 Conifer

GOLDEN – Summit High School softball faced No. 2 Conifer Tuesday on the road and, well, the Tigers forgot their bats.

Not literally, of course, but the Lobos one-hit Summit and beat the Tigers, 10-0.

“They’re good, there’s no doubt,” Tigers head coach Shelly Koehler said. “Everybody in this league is good. Their pitcher was very good but hittable. We’re just trying to pull out of something we get ourselves into. We have to shift the mindset when we’re down.”

The shutout was only Summit’s second of the season.

Summit fell to 2-3 in Class 4A Jeffco League play.

The Tigers play host to D’Evelyn (2-4) Thursday at the Blue River Softball fields in Silverthorne. Game time is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.

Cross Country

TABERNASH – Saturday at the Snow Mountain Invitational, Summit cross country runners had their shoes pulled off by the muddy course.

As head coach Heather Quarantillo said, “It was the true definition of a cross country race …”

The girls varsity team ended up ninth out of 17 teams, despite the conditions, illness and minor injuries.

Senior Tara Carosa placed 21st out of the 110-runner field with a time of 23 minutes, 39 seconds. Sierra Anderson finished 39th, while Brittany Perkins (42nd), Jordan Cooper (52nd), Amy Secor and Jessie Geiss also competed.

The boys varsity placed 14th on the hilly course, which should have the Tigers primed for their home meet Saturday at the Frisco Nordic Center. Ben Holland led Summit with a 30th place finish out of 106 runners, running a 20:51.

Jarvis Johnson placed 53rd, captain Chris Marvin finished 72nd, while Marc Miller and David Shaffer also competed.

Saturday’s competition is set to start at 10 a.m.
