Big changes could be in store for all three local high school football teams, and local coaches from Steamboat, Hayden and Soroco aren't complaining.
There aren’t many people as excited to have winter practices underway as DaKota Bruner. The Soroco High School junior and returning all-conference selection for the girls’ basketball team tore her ACL and partially tore her MCL 15 games into the season last winter, but she's back at full speed and ready to get to work.
And just like that, the cross country careers of three Steamboat Springs High School mainstays are over.
There has never been any doubt about the Soroco High School football team’s ability to score on offense. However, for most of the season, the defense had been something of an Achilles heel for the Rams.
In Grand Valley, the Rams defeated Meeker 3-2 before falling to Cedaredge in three sets to finish the year 11-9.
The Steamboat Springs High School girls cross country team is sending seven runners to Saturday's state meet while Soroco is sending two athletes.
There are big games everywhere a fan can look this weekend as it's that time of the year. It's crunch time for the Steamboat volleyball squad, playing Thursday for a league title. Friday presents a big opportunity for the Steamboat football team. Hayden and Soroco will clash in football Friday, as well, and that's always interesting. On top of all that, the Soroco volleyball team plays Friday in the district tournament.
Tigers will host Hotchkiss on Tuesday in a district play-in game.
Soroco High School football coach Dick Dudas jokingly calls them his secret trick plays. In reality, they are just mistakes that junior quarterback Issac Jonas has a knack for turning into highlight reel spectacles.
Soroco High School volleyball coach Jeannie Jo Logan decided to make a few adjustments for Saturday’s match against Plateau Valley in Oak Creek, the regular-season finale for the Rams.
Steamboat Springs is sending seven and the Soroco team two as Routt County’s high school cross county teams shined bright enough Friday at the regional cross country meet in Delta to qualify nine local athletes to next weekend’s state championship cross country meet.
Soroco seniors set on enjoying final ride
After losing at home to Rangely in three sets, the Soroco volleyball's class of five seniors is focused on putting it all together in the season's final stretch.
The Steamboat volleyball team plays on the road Thursday night against Eagle Valley, one of the marquee games in what is one of the last weekends of fall regular season high school sports action.
It wasn’t pretty, but Soroco High School volleyball coach Jeannie Jo Logan said it didn’t have to be Tuesday night as the Rams beat Vail Mountain in four sets.
This wasn’t the best of weeks for Routt County sports. There were strong performances and near upsets, but there were also a few missed opportunities. At least none of the losses look to be crippling, and this week will provide everyone a chance at redemption with most regionals only a week or so off.
