Well-traveled Sailors girls lacrosse falls to Durango

— After about 20 hours spent traveling in a school bus, the Steamboat Springs High School girls lacrosse team is ready for a break.

Playing in their third away game in three days, the Sailors succumbed to Durango, 18-4, the morning after beating Telluride on the road for Steamboat’s first win of the spring.

“We started off a little bit slow, but you could kind of tell it was their third game in three days,” Steamboat coach Betsy Frick said.

Libby Lukens, Kaelyn Kauffmann, Emi Constantini and Cassett Yeager got in on the scoring action, and goalie Summer Dorr recorded 11 saves in the loss.

Steamboat (1-4 overall) now gets a much-needed rest. The Sailors will have the week off from competition before taking on Battle Mountain at Gardner Field for Steamboat’s first home game March 30.

“I think they’re looking forward to a week without games,” Frick said. “This weekend was good. I think they learned a lot.”
