Steamboat skier Eliza Outtrim was seventh in the moguls race, and Jeremy Cota finished 10th on the men’s side.

Wrestlers heading to state

Steamboat junior high wrestlers Nick Rossman and Casey Williams missed their team’s final home meet and the team’s championship in that event.

They made their absence worthwhile, however. The pair rolled into the middle school state wrestling tournament by earning second-place finishes in Saturday’s regional wrestling tournament in Grand Junction.
