The Steamboat Springs High School boys tennis team split a pair of matches Friday, falling to Cheyenne Mountain before beating Mullen.
In the first match of the day, Steamboat lost to Cheyenne Mountain, 5-2.
The Sailors picked up wins at No. 1 singles from Jamey Swiggart and No. 2 singles from Luke Farny.
“I know that we’re better than that as a team,” Steamboat coach John Aragon said.
In the second match, a 6-1 win against Mullen, Steamboat got wins from Swiggart and Farny as well as No. 3 singles player Colin Green, the No. 2 doubles team of Gabri Erspamer and Stefan Sortland, No. 3 doubles team of Quinn Cain and Corbin Diehl and the No. 4 doubles team of Karsten Thompson and Ben Wharton.
“They’ll be a different team” today, Aragon said.
