This wasn’t the end to the regular season the Steamboat Springs High School hockey team had in mind. The squad lost its second lopsided game in as many days, falling to 13-5 on the season after an 8-3 loss Saturday at Standley Lake.
Soroco High School senior Ceanna Rossi scored 17 points Saturday, helping her Rams past Meeker, 61-45. Rossi also grabbed 10 rebounds, rounding out one of the best games of her career as the team bounced back from a hard loss Friday night against Hayden.
The Soroco High School boys basketball team hung with Meeker through most of the first half of Saturday’s game, trailing just 21-18 with 2 minutes, 13 seconds remaining in the first half. The Cowboys used the next 10 minutes to put the Rams away, however, sending Soroco to a 70-37 defeat.
Sports talking heads sometimes suggest it’s good for a high-quality team to lose a game before the season-ending tournament, that a loss can allow the team to refocus. Hayden High School boys basketball coach Mike Luppes said that wasn’t the plan, but it quickly became one after the squad was upset on Saturday, 53-52, at West Grand.
The Tigers struggled today with a West Grand squad that has limped though the season. They managed to defeat the Mustangs, however, 50-37.
After the team claimed a tight must-win game Friday night, the playoff hopes for the Steamboat Springs High School girls basketball team took a blow today as the squad dropped a game to Delta.
The high school basketball state playoffs are less than two weeks away, and the Sailors are hoping they can ride their hot streak to the tournament. The Sailors showed no signs of letting up as they torched Delta on Saturday, winning 74-46.
The Sailors girls basketball team never lost its composure during a four-minute scoring drought in the second quarter, and made key free throws down the stretch to defeat Palisade, 49-44, on Friday night.
The Soroco High School girls had hoped for a measure of revenge Friday night, the Rams figuring four solid quarters against Hayden would give the team a victory when last month two solid quarters gave them a fat half-time lead. Soroco didn’t play any solid quarters, however, and could do little to hang with a Tigers team playing on Senior Night intent on showing it remained the team to beat in Class 2A basketball in Routt County.
It was Senior Night for the Hayden boys basketball team Friday, and senior Graig Medvesk made his special. Although his Tigers turned to the bench often, Medvesk was in long enough to score a game-high 21 points, and that was more than enough to push Hayden’s star over 1,000 career points as the Tigers rolled over Soroco, 65-46.

Kit Croop came off the bench to score a career-high 15 points, and the Steamboat Springs High School boys basketball team imposed its will on Palisade for a 42-27 win in Kelly Meek Gymnasium on Friday night. The win reversed an earlier 47-44 loss to the Bulldogs and solidified Steamboat’s hold on second place in the Western Slope League standings.
Late goals help No. 3-ranked team pass Sailors hockey team, 4-1
Lance Ostrom’s goal just more than two minutes into the third period gave hope to the Steamboat Springs High School hockey team in its showdown with No. 3 Chatfield on Friday night at Howelsen Ice Arena. But the rally was short-lived. Chatfield went on to defeat the hometown Sailors, 4-1.

Steamboat Symphony Orchestra event offers evening of dancing
While riding the gondola at Steamboat Ski Area last week, Steamboat Symphony Orchestra violinist Teresa Steffen Greenlee offered one nugget of advice for the teenage boys: Learn to dance. That’s because someday they might be invited to an event like the Steamboat Symphony Orchestra Winter Soiree.
30 years later, I return to sidelines
My assignment to cover Steamboat Springs High School boys and girls hoops Friday night lit a big fat nostalgia bomb for me. I spent nine years split into two stints covering sports for the weekly Steamboat Pilot.

It’s been years since the process began, and the Oak Creek Town Board could be a month away from approving its updated land-use code. At its biweekly meeting Thursday night, the Town Board approved, 6-0, a first reading of the code and held its final public hearing on the matter.
