Gantick, Spartans rolling in NCAA lacrosse playoffs


The ride of a lifetime keeps getting longer for Steamboat Springs High School alumnus Jasper Gantick, playing lacrosse at the University of Tampa.

His Spartans spent much of the year ranked in the NCAA Division II top 10 and have backed that up in the postseason. They most recently won in the quarterfinals, defeating Mercyhurst, 11-9. Next up for the squad, on which Gantick is a captain, is a Sunday semifinal showdown with Limestone College, 17-1, from Gaffney, South Carolina.

The Spartans, 16-2, and the Saints will play at 11 a.m. Sunday in Gaffney and the game will be televised at The Tap House Sports Grill in Steamboat Springs, or online at
