The Steamboat Springs High School girls tennis team won 5-2 at home over Glenwood Springs on Saturday, but it didn’t come easy.

The victory was ultimately decided by a pair of tiebreakers, that if both went the other way would have given the Demons the win.

Steamboat led 3-2 over Glenwood thanks to wins from singles players Evan Quinn and Grace Brice and the doubles team of Sloane Speer and Amanda Dietrich.

No. 2 singles player Kelsey Norland won the first set, 6-3, but lost the second, 6-2, to force a 10-point tie breaker.

“Everyone was nervous as these two tiebreaks could swing the match to Glenwood,” head coach Eliot Guin said. “But Kelsey rose to the occasion and got us the final point we needed.”

Norland won the tie breaker 10-5, sealing the team win for Steamboat.

With the point secured for the victory, the doubles team of Avery Olson and Charlotte Teuscher had less pressure on them. They stepped up and won, 10-7.
