Steamboat Springs The Steamboat Springs High School girls lacrosse team wasn’t looking for a mentor Friday, but that didn’t stop Battle Mountain from showing the Sailors how it's done.
Battle Mountain ran up a 5-0 lead early playing at home against Steamboat and carried that through to a 13-5 victory.
“Clearly, they’ve improved a lot from last year,” Steamboat coach Betsy Frick said. “They’re one of the better teams in the league, and they don’t have any seniors.
“They were just bigger and faster.”
That kind of depth, that kind of program strength, is what Frick hopes the Sailors are building. On Friday, though, they were on the wrong end of that equation.
Teagann Yeager scored twice for Steamboat. Emily Spiess, Nikki Fry and Hanna Hartley all scored, as well.
Steamboat also got a strong game in goal from McKenzie Repollo, a senior in her first year with the team. She had 13 saves.
“She is gaining confidence and does not hesitate to come out of the crease for ground balls,” Frick said. “It’s a real asset for our team to have such an athletic and aggressive goalie.”
Steamboat, 4-6, gets back in action Tuesday against winless Summit.
