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

By the numbers

9 — As in a perfect 9-0 this season for Steamboat Springs tennis sensation Tatum Burger. It seems that no matter how many times the Sailors head over a few passes and compete against Front Range opponents, Burger still comes out on top. She won all three of her matches this weekend. Burger and the Sailors have just one more match to go before regional and state championship play ramps up.

5 — Total losses now for Steamboat Springs boys lacrosse team, two more than all of last season. The Sailors have had to replace a truckload of talent from last season's Final Four squad, and their 6-5 record isn't exactly indicative of how well they've done filling those holes. The next two weeks are crunch time for Steamboat if the Sailors plan to land a reasonable seed in the 4A state playoffs.

13 — Goals scored now by Steamboat Springs soccer player Jordi Floyd. The junior even had a bit of a late jump on the season after her competitive ski season ran late. Floyd scored the goal that netted the Sailors a 1-1 draw at Centaurus on Saturday. Side note: Fellow junior Natalie Bohlmann has a dozen goals herself, showing how much fire power the Sailors have this spring.

1. Tatum Burger looks unstoppable

The tiny, soft-spoken Sailors freshman tennis player is making a serious name for herself across the Colorado Class 4A landscape. Burger is still undefeated this season after three wins this weekend over her Ralston Valley, Boulder and Air Academy opponents. With state tennis now less than a month away, Steamboat’s No. 1 singles player is becoming one of the favorites to make a run in her respective bracket.

2. Steamboat ace Pugh guides Sailors to home win



Game 2 didn’t go according to plan, but Steamboat Springs senior baseball player Jesse Pugh showed just how valuable he is to the Sailors in Game 1 of Saturday’s doubleheader against Glenwood Springs. Pugh tossed seven scoreless innings in the first half of the doubleheader. He gave up 10 hits, but not a single hit was for extra bases, and the Sailors’ defense had its pitcher’s back. It helps, too, that freshman David Brown rocketed in his fifth home run of the season, helping Steamboat grab the 3-0 victory.

3. Steamboat-Battle Mountain girls soccer rivalry closes entertaining season



Battle Mountain girls soccer has again asserted itself against the rest of the 4A Western Slope this season, and again Steamboat made the Huskies earn it. On Tuesday, Battle Mountain escaped Gardner Field with a 4-2 victory, improving to 10-0 in the process and earning the Huskies consecutive conference titles. The two-game, regular-season series between the two teams was certainly entertaining, including an overtime golden-goal by the Huskies on March 31 and a just-short comeback effort Tuesday by the Sailors.

Quote of the week

Steamboat Springs girls soccer coach Rob Bohlmann, following his team’s 1-1 draw at Centaurus on the Front Range on Saturday. The Sailors are now 8-3-1:

“Both teams battled hard. Both teams had opportunities, and both goalkeepers kept the game clean. Coming away with a 1-1 draw is a good result.”
