No. 2 singles player Jeff Lambart and No. 3 singles player Keegan Burger each advanced to third place matches today against players from Chatfield.
Several doubles teams have the opportunity today to advance to fifth-place matches.
"The team had a solid day," Steamboat coach John Aragon said. "We're young, but overall it was solid."
Play resumes at 8 a.m. today with consolation play and fifth- and third-place matches. Championship matches take place at 11 a.m.
