Steamboat top gun off to Canada

Steamboat Springs' Marsh Gooding will travel to Canada this month to compete in the Air Canada Whistler Cup.

Gooding qualified for the races based on his top showing at the J-3 Junior Olympic Championships last month. Only nine skiers for the United States qualify to compete in the races, which features a field of top 14-year-olds from around the world.

Racing will begin on April 6 and run through April 9. Gooding earned the right to go by posting several first place finishes (super-G, giant slalom and overall) at the Junior Olympic Championships.

Steamboat Springs coach Linus Vaitkus said this is the biggest race in the world for the J-3 age group.

Team organizers on the ball

The Steamboat Springs Parks and recreation department will hold mandatory organization meets for both softball and soccer on April 17 at the Community Center.

Team captains, new teams and new players should show up to the meeting for information on the upcoming season.

Anyone interested in being an umpire should also attend the meeting. Coordinator Jim Fader is planning to hold weekly clinics every Sunday during May to review softball rules and procedures. If you are interested in umping, please show up at the league meetings. Contact the Parks and Recreational Services department at 879-4300 for more information.

CSU wide receiver finished for spring

Spring football ended early for Colorado State wide receiver Dallas Davis. The senior will undergo arthroscopic shoulder surgery Thursday.

Davis, who has caught 51 passes for 746 yards and six touchdowns in his college career, was an observer as Colorado State went through a 90-minute workout.

If Davis can't perform well enough, Coach Sonny Lubick has three reserves in Chris Pittman, Eric Hill and Russel Sprague.
