Steamboat Springs boys lacrosse is off to a solid start this season. 

Despite a tough 14-5 loss to the reigning 4A state champions, Cheyenne Mountain, the Sailors managed to bounce back in a big way with a 10-2 win over Eagle Valley on the road on Friday, March 24. 

Now sitting at 3-1 on the year, the Sailors have outscored their opponents 45-20 this season and have displayed an impressive ability to score at will while remaining stout on defense for the duration of games. 

The team gets a week off before completing its three-game road trip on Saturday, April 1 against Thompson Valley. Steamboat then returns home for back-to-back games on April 4 and 5 against Glenwood Springs and Aspen.
