Steamboat Springs Peewees take to the mats
The peewee wrestling season will kick off its season with an organizational meeting on March 1 at the Steamboat Springs Middle School cafeteria.
The program, which is coached by Richard Atkinson, teaches the basics of the sport to children who are in kindergarten through sixth grade. Boys and girls are welcome. For more information, contact Atkinson at 879-1976.
Freestylers dominate meet
Seventeen women and 72 men took part in the Rocky Mountain Freestyle competition in Berthoud on Feb. 10.
Steamboat's Gina Gmeiner won the women's event by collecting 23.50 points. She was followed by Chelsea Shields of Winter Park and Lauren Rainen of the University of Colorado.
Other top Steamboat finishers included Erin Anderson in fourth, MaryAnn Skraba in fifth and Candice White in 10th.
The men's event was won by Ryan Saunders of CU. Steamboat's Scott Voss was second, Tommy Halverson was sixth, Luke Vincent came in seventh and Martin Nankoo was ninth. Steamboat had 18 skiers in the top 29 at the event.
It's an event that most of us have been training for all winter in our driveways, but on Saturday shoveling snow could pay big.
Well, the winner could pocket $100 for their hard work.
The Extreme Snow Removal contest will begin at noon at the Steamboat Lake Visitors Center. The event will take place during the state park's open house, which means spectators can grab free food while watching the events. The competition is limited to the first 10 entrants and cost to enter is $25 per person. For more information or to enter, call 871-1495.
Proceeds will benefit the Steamboat Lake Snow Club a group of outdoor enthusiasts in north Routt.
