Steamboat girls basketball steamrolls through the weekend

Steamboat Springs girls basketball traveled to Roaring Fork over the weekend for a tournament to open its season.

The Sailors continued that momentum with a win over tournament host Roaring Fork 30-27 on Saturday, Dec. 3. Steamboat held a one-point lead at the half, but the Sailors were able to hold onto that lead for the win and the weekend sweep.
