— With many students still on spring break, the Steamboat Springs High School track and field team took only a small squad to the Coal Ridge Invitational on Friday.

Senior Alexandra Tumminello was a bright spot for the team, winning the girls 1,600-meter race with a season-best time of 5 minutes, 37.87 seconds. Freshman Kandice Kittinger took sixth in the same race in 6:03.62. Kitinger also finished second in the girls 3,200-meter race in 13:20.59, while Tumminello also recorded a sixth-place finish in the 800-meter race (2:37.15).

The Steamboat boys had three relay teams finish in the top six.

Sophomore Kyle Spognardi was eighth in the 800-meter race (2:16.9), sophomore Zach Gollnick ninth in the 100-meter dash (12.11) and freshman Decker Dean 10th in the 1,600-meter race (5:20.11).

The Sailors next will send their pole vaulters to the High Country Pole Vault Championships on Thursday in Kremmling before traveling as a complete unit to Moffat County on Friday.
