Tigers softball wins again
DENVER – Make it eight in a row.
Summit High School softball improved to 8-1 on the season Saturday after pounding Machebeuf 13-7.
The Tigers were led by Shannon Buhler’s 3-run triple, and three hits by Caitlin Schmidt and Mackenzie Voorhees. Brittany Ellsworth pounded two doubles, while Cissy Daniels and Nichole Mason each added a pair of singles.
“Once again, it was a team effort,” head coach Shelly Koehler said.
The Tigers take on Englewood Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at Blue River Fields in Silverthorne.
COLORADO SPRINGS – The Tigers were hot, literally.
Friday’s cross country meet at the Liberty Bell Invitational featured 85-degree temperatures and a flat course, a nice change of pace from Summit County’s hills and freezing temps.
The boys varsity finished in 20th place in the meet and set a slew of personal bests. Ben Holland led the Tigers with a 72nd place showing and a personal best time of 18 minutes, 55 seconds.
Bentley Bedker ran a 19:37, good enough for 86th place, in his first race since spraining his ankle last week. Jarvis Johnson ran a 20:21, another personal best, while Chris Marvin came in with a 20:48.
And, David Shaffer also ran his fastest time ever, finishing in 22:39.
“We are so pleased with our boys team, for their effort and individual improvements,” head coach Heather Quarantillo said.
The varsity girls showed improvement as well, finishing in 12th place. Tara Carosa led the Tigers with a 21:49, while Brittany Perkins crossed in 23:07. Sierra Anderson ran a 23:38 in her first cross country race, while Jessie Geiss finished in 23:43. Kara Springer was close behind with a 23:47, while freshman Whitney Henceroth crossed in 25:45.
On Friday night, the women’s gymnastics team headed down to Conifer for a league match against Conifer, Arvada West and Chatfield. They finished third in the tournament ahead of the home team, and Arvada West came in first.
Claudia Bouvier led the Tigers, finishing fifth in the all around with a 32.625 and first on the beam at 8.875.
Despite Bouvier’s performance, head coach Beth Flaherty considers beam to be one of the overall weak spots on the team.
“Beam continues to be a challenge for us,” she said. “While their focus has improved, meet jitters got the best of them.”
Meanwhile, the girls had an impressive night on the bars. Nobody placed in the meet, but Amelia Meier and Katie Lindbloom both had state qualifying scores at 8.375 and 8.05, and Emma Koenig set a season high with 7.85.
The Lady Tigers are preparing for their league home opener, which is Wednesday night at Summit High.
“Meet preparation is something we will be working on,” she said. “Our team score continues to improve bit by bit, meet by meet.”
EVERGREEN – Summit’s Brandon Ives and Aaron Nelson scored touchdowns Friday night, but the Tigers fell to Evergreen on the road, 56-16.
The Tigers take on Englewood Friday night at Tigers Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
DENVER – Another game, another shutout for Summit goalie Kyler Dossett, as the Tigers held Kent Denver to a scoreless tie on Wednesday.
According to Shafroth, the defense was on fire.
“Kyler Dosset was spectacular as usual,” he said. “It was a thrilling game with multiple chances on both sides, but no goals were scored.”
The game was Dosset’s third shutout of the season.
