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

By the numbers

2 — The number of matches that ultimately decided who won and lost in Steamboat Springs girls tennis' contests versus Fossil Ridge and Thompson Valley this weekend. Steamboat was without its No. 1 singles player, Tatum Burger, which likely would have set the Sailors over the top in Friday's 4-3 loss. But the following day, Steamboat found a way to grab the 4-3 win, making the Sailors 4-1 overall.

11 — More goals already scored this year by Steamboat Springs High School boys lacrosse senior Andrew Firestone than he scored all of last year. The Sailors needed some scoring power after graduating its leading scorers, and Firestone has fit the bill nicely. He has scored multiple goals in four of Steamboat's five games this spring, including five scores Friday against Thompson Valley.

15 — Margin of victory for the Steamboat Springs High School girls soccer team this weekend against Delta and Montezuma-Cortez. Both teams came into the game winless and struggling, and the Sailors took advantage early and often. It would have been two shutouts, but Delta tacked on a goal with just two minutes remaining in the game Friday.

1. Firestone’s 5 goals nets Sailors win versus ranked opponent

The Sailors needed every bit of Andrew Firestone’s five scores Friday at No. 9 Thompson Valley. The senior delivered in a big way, leading the Sailors to a 13-11 victory against a likely playoff opponent. Steamboat got gassed the following day at Windsor, but Firestone has quickly emerged as the team’s top scoring threat.

2. Doubles teams anchor Sailors girls tennis



Playing without its top player, someone had to step up for the Steamboat Springs High School girls tennis team. The Sailors’ doubles pairs filled the void admirably. First, at Fossil Ridge on Friday, Steamboat got big wins from its Nos. 1, 2 and 3 doubles teams in a 4-3 loss. Never mind the loss, because the doubles teams followed suit with a big 4-3 win at Thompson Valley the next day. Steamboat again got wins from its Nos. 1, 2 and 3 doubles teams, and Emmie Thompson at No. 2 singles made the difference in the Sailors’ 4-3 victory.

3. Floyd and Bohlmann pull off pair of trifectas



Juniors Jordi Floyd and Natalie Bohlmann scorched Delta and Montezuma-Cortez this weekend. Bohlmann poured in a hat trick in Friday’s 8-1 win over Delta, while Floyd had her second hat trick of the season Saturday in an 8-0 shutout over Montezuma-Cortez. Combined this season, Floyd and Bohlmann have 18 goals, despite Floyd having to start the season a bit late because of her ski season commitments.

Quote of the week

Steamboat Springs High School girls tennis coach John Aragon on his team’s narrow win over Thompson Valley on Saturday:

“I was glad to see when the pressure was on and we really needed it, the girls stepped up and came to play,” Aragon said.
