Steamboat Springs The Steamboat Springs High School girls tennis team struggled Friday in the highly competitive Mullen Tournament.
The tournament features four of the best Class 5A schools and eight of the best 4A teams.
“Competition is rough and good,” Sailors coach Don Toy said. “The best players in the state are here.”
Steamboat had one player advance to Saturday’s play. Rachelle Steele-Cerone lost her first match before winning an eight-game pro set to advance to Saturday’s third-place match.
At No. 1 singles, Christi Valicenti won her first match but lost her second. Kira Lorenzen, filling in at No. 3 singles, lost both of her matches.
The No. 1 doubles team of Lauren Siegel and Ali Diehl, the No. 2 doubles team of Kaitie Briesch and Ellie Bender, and the No. 3 doubles team of Alli Lowrie and Rachel Grubbs all went 1-1 on the day.
The No. 4 doubles team of Maria Hillenbrand and Summer Smalley lost both of its matches.
The full team returns to play April 29 at Air Academy.
