Top 3 performances of the weekend in Routt County high school sports

By the numbers

29 — Steamboat Springs boys lacrosse players who saw action on the field Saturday in the Sailors three-goal win over Douglas County. The entire Sailors roster got some very valuable minutes, coach Jay Lattimore said, and with seniors leading the way, Steamboat eked out the win to improve to 2-1 overall.

44 1/2 — Feet that Steamboat Springs senior Austin Kerbs launched the shot put at Saturday's Mickey Dunn Invitational track meet in Grand Junction. Kerbs looks like anything but a standard shot put thrower, but a combination of speed and power can go a long way in the throwers' circle. The 44-feet-6-inch throw automatically puts him into contention for a 4A state meet bid, and it's only the Sailors' second invitational of the season.

9 — Different Steamboat Springs girls lacrosse players who scored in the Sailors' big win over Telluride Friday. Six girls had multiple goals in the game, too, as Steamboat weathered a very long road weekend.

1. Floyd’s hat trick helps Sailors soccer blow out Glenwood

Jordi Floyd put a quick end to the Sailors’ slew of close wins this spring. Steamboat started the season 3-1, but all four games were decided by one goal. Floyd poured in a hat trick Thursday at home against Glenwood, a team the Sailors narrowly knocked off March 5. That wasn’t the case in Round 2 as Floyd and company routed the Demons, 5-1, to stay alive in the very tight 4A Western Slope League standings.

2. Sailors girls lacrosse picks up win No. 1



The Sailors have been road warriors this season, though the outcomes haven’t been going in their favor much. That changed in a long, long road trip to Telluride Friday afternoon. The Miners are a newly formed program, and Steamboat took advantage big time in the 16-2 victory. Brittany Brown led with three goals, followed by two goals apiece from Cassett Yeager, Kaelyn Kauffmann, Bella Arce, Brittney Starks and Maura Glynn.

3. Steamboat boys lacrosse rebounds



Steamboat racked up 12 straight wins last spring before suffering its first loss. The Sailors got that out of the way in a tough loss to No. 2-ranked Valor Christian Tuesday, but Steamboat rebounded on the road at Douglas County Saturday. Down by a score at half, Steamboat’s senior leaders picked up the pace and marched the Sailors to an 11-8 come-from-behind victory to improve to 2-1. Senior Andrew Firestone continued to emerge as a go-to scoring threat with a trio of goals. Willy Gunn had two goals and three assists in the win.

Quote of the week

Steamboat Springs High School baseball coach Rusty McRight after his team’s pair of doubleheader losses to Western Slope League power Delta Saturday:

“To hang with a top program like that and pretty much be one swing away from tying the game up, that says a lot for the hard work the boys have put in so far,” McRight said.
