Weather wrecks plans, Sailors find alternatives

— Tennis coach John Aragon had hoped the Steamboat Springs High School girls team would open the Mullen Tournament on Friday afternoon.

Instead he was busy making alternative plans.

The threat of nasty weather in the Denver area this weekend forced organizers of the Mullen tournament to postpone the tournament.

Once Aragon heard the Mullen matches had been canceled, he got on the phone and set up matches with D’Evelyn and Ralston Valley to fill the void.

“The organizers thought it was going to snow, so they moved things back a week,” Aragon said. “I knew we were going to be on spring break, so we made other plans.”

Steamboat is scheduled to face D’Evelyn at 11 a.m. today. The Steamboat team also will face top-rated Ralston Valley at 1 p.m. It’s a match Aragon hopes will help prepare Steamboat for the state tournament.

“Sure, we are disappointed that the tournament got canceled,” Aragon said. “But that’s life this time of year. We just wanted to get some matches in and make the best of a tough situation.”
