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

By the numbers

17 — Combined wins for the Steamboat Springs and Battle Mountain girls soccer teams heading into Tuesday's Sailors-Huskies game at Gardner Field. With Steamboat at 8-2 overall and Battle Mountain still perfect at 9-0, the this second contest between the two teams is easily the biggest game remanning on the 4A Western Slope League slate. A win for Steamboat would secure the Sailors the No. 2 position in the conference.

3 — Doubles losses for Steamboat Springs girls tennis over the Sailors' last four contests. It's safe to say Steamboat's doubles pairs are humming along right now and look to be the strength of the team. Two of the teams are senior-freshman pairs, too.

9 — Largest margin of victory for the Steamboat Springs boys lacrosse team since the Sailors beat Eagle Valley, 14-2, nearly a month ago. The Sailors handled visiting Fruita Monument, a school nearly triple Steamboat's size. Seven different Steamboat players scored in the win.

1. Firestone and Gunn lead the way for Sailors boys lax

Steamboat Springs senior boys lacrosse players Andrew Firestone and Willy Gunn put on a scoring clinic in Saturday’s win over Fruita Monument. Whether it was Firestone’s unblockable bullets or Gunn’s acrobatic behind-the-back shot, the seniors led the way in a big rout of the visiting Wildcats, 14-5. The win pushed the Sailors to 5-2 overall.

2. Steamboat girls soccer takes care of business



The Steamboat Springs girls soccer team did its part this week with another pair of wins. After blasting Summit on Thursday, 5-0, and edging Palisade on Saturday, 1-0, the Sailors sit at 8-2 overall this year. Oh, and not to mention, league rival Battle Mountain comes to Gardner Field Tuesday for round two of Sailors vs. Huskies. Round one didn’t disappoint in a 2-1 overtime loss for Steamboat.

3. Sailors girls tennis cruises at home



The Steamboat Springs girls tennis team is rolling right now. Not only did the Sailors win 12 of 14 matches this weekend, they also knocked off previously undefeated Lakewood in the process, giving the team more confidence as it heads into the home stretch of the season. Steamboat’s No. 1 singles player Tatum Burger went undefeated through the weekend, and the Sailors’ doubles teams won all but one match against Vail Mountain and Lakewood.

Quote of the week

Steamboat Springs High School senior boys lacrosse player Willy Gunn on his team relaxing and enjoying the game Saturday against visiting Fruita Monument:

“It takes a lot of pressure off each and every guy,” Gunn said. “It really helps the whole team synergy, I’d say. We decided we’re going to be a good team and have fun doing it.”
