Steamboat Springs Steamboat's Tiffany McGinn and Tara Weiss had their season come to an end at the state tennis tournament in Pueblo Thursday.
McGinn and Weiss, who are on the No. 2 doubles team, were defeated by Kelly Borden and Anna Wheat of Cheyenne Mountain in the first round.
Weiss and McGinn would still be in the tourney if their opponent had not lost in the next round.
First-round losers can advance to playback matches if their opponents go on to reach the finals, Sailors coach Carol Baily said.
Sailors Meagan Franks (No. 2 singles) and Kim Heckbert (No. 3 singles) dropped their first-round matches but are still in the tourney because their opponents made it to the semifinals.
If their opponents win their semifinal matches today, Heckbert and Franks will compete in playbacks. They still could finish as high as No. 3 if that happens, Baily said.
Though the Steamboat players all fell in the first round, their scores were not indicative of how well they played, Baily said.
"The competition is really tough and, you know, I think some of them are a little shell shocked to see all of these good players here," Baily said.
Franks lost to Pueblo County's Amber Matuzak, 6-0, 6-2.
Heckbert was defeated by Eaton's Carlee Carpio, 6-0, 6-1.
Weiss and McGinn jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the first set of their match, before falling, 6-4, 6-1.
