Though no Steamboat Springs tennis player came away with a championship, the five that participated in the Intermountain 12-and-under Memorial Day Championships gained valuable experience.
Lisa Floyd, Jordy Bernard, Kirsten Brehmer, Alexandra Leatu and Jamey Swiggart all took part in the tournament, which welcomed many of the top young players from the six-state Intermountain Region to the Tennis Center at Steamboat Springs over the holiday weekend.
Idaho, Utah and Colorado were represented at the four-day event that concluded Monday.
Casey MacMaster of Fort Collins and Katie MacIntyre of Superior came out victorious, upsetting top seeds in the boys and girls draws, respectively.
MacMaster is ranked third in the Intermountain Region. MacIntyre is ranked fourth.
Their opponents held top rankings in the region.
