Earp, Garth make All-State team

— Two members of the Steamboat Springs High School girls soccer team were named to the Colorado High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State team.

Senior Carly Earp and sophomore Courtney Garth each were tabbed honorable mention and will serve as alternates to the all-state game later this summer.

“It’s a well-deserving honor,” Steamboat coach Rob Bohlmann said.

Bohlmann said Earp – one of two seniors on the team – helped provide the Sailors with leadership while becoming one of the prime scoring threats.

“She had a big impact,” Bohlmann said. “She was a big part of helping get our group into the state playoffs.”

In Garth, Bohlmann said the Sailors had a fiery player who would stand out in every game for her passion of play.

“She made a tremendous impact,” Bohlmann said. “I would say both girls are very well-deserving.”

Bkie club meets Tuesdays

A weekly road biking club meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays at the corner of 12th and Yampa streets.

The club and its rides are designed for experienced cyclists. There are four groups that take rides around the area.

“It’s for somewhat experience road riders,” Barkley Robinson said. “The purpose of the rides is to teach people proper road biking etiquette and to get out on the road. It’s not entry level, but riders don’t need to be expert.”

Robinson said the group averages about 50 riders each Tuesday, making it one of the biggest riding groups in any of the mountain towns.

“It’s been a great thing,” he said. “Ten years ago, I moved to town and only about three people were doing it. Now, we’ve got a lot more people to come out.”

Anyone interested in joining the group should show up at 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays in front of Orange Peel Bicycle Service.
