Summit vs. Steamboat Springs — Tigers football, Sept. 2
The second game of the regular season, a non-conference match against the Steamboat Springs Sailors at Steamboat Springs High School. The Tigers won, 35-7, and improve to 2-0 overall (0-0 league) for the season.
The next football game is the home opener, a non-conference match against Niwot High School on Sept. 9. Kickoff is 7 p.m. at Tigers Stadium.
This marks the first time in several season that the Tigers have started a season 2-0. New head coach John Shirkey has the recap:
The Summit Tigers football team was on the road against Steamboat Springs, which had proven difficult in the past couple years.
The first half appeared to be another early-season game, with many mental errors paired with penalties. The Tigers offense was able to find the end zone once in the first half on a 41-yard strike from junior quarterback Jake Gillum to senior wideout Eddie Jain. The Tigers defense continued its stellar play and held the Sailors scoreless in the first half.
Receiving the ball in the second half, the Tigers offense began to show glimpses of their capabilities. The half was dominated by a ground attack led by senior Adolfo Vasquez and junior Dylan Lane, who both finished the night with over 80 yards rushing. The offensive line took control in the second half on their way to four rushing touchdowns and 275 yards rushing for the game. Scoring for the Tigers, along with Jain and Vasquez, were senior Matt Francomano (2 TD) and junior David Birmingham. A new weapon for the Tigers this year is senior kicker Tye Brown-Wolf, who was perfect on the night, going five-for-five on extra point kicks.
The only score from the Sailors came late in the game on a broken play, resulting in a 60-yard touchdown pass.

2016 Dillon Open keelboat results — Aug. 20-21
From Aug. 5-7 — the original weekend for the annual Dillon Open Regatta — an odd thing happened: there was no wind on Lake Dillon. Sailors in the juniors division and Laser class were able to finish a handful of races, but the full keelboat series was postponed for the weekend of Aug. 20-21.
