The Steamboat wrestling and hockey teams and the Soroco and Hayden boys and girls basketball teams all hit the road this weekend. Will they find what their looking for on the highway?
The new-found pace of the Soroco High School girls basketball team roared into Oak Creek Tuesday night as the Rams played their first home game of the season. They teetered between furiously fast — effective — and frantically frenzied — less so — but ended up easily running away from North Park to earn a 84-39 victory.
Steamboat finished third as a team in its season-opening wrestling event and had three individual champions. Hayden and Soroco each had one.
Turnovers helped lead the Soroco boys to two losses Saturday, but coach Shawn Hayes said those experience will pay off in the long run.
The Soroco High School girls team lost Saturday for the first time this season, falling 51-46 against Moffat County in the championship game of the Cowboy Shootout tournament in Meeker. Still, coach David Bruner said his team is coming off the weekend plenty pleased with its results.
The Steamboat boys basketball team trailed big at half but managed to eek out a big win.

The shooting wasn't pretty, but Soroco High School girls basketball coach David Bruner said the defense was, and that helped pave the way to a 65-45 win Thursday for the Rams against the Mesa Ridge junior varsity team in the opening round of the Meeker Cowboy Shootout tournament.
Soroco wrestler Jace Logan may have taken some of his opponents by surprise last year as a freshman, at least early in the season. He won’t have that luxury for a single match this year.
Building chemistry and developing confidence early will be key for a young, small and inexperienced Soroco boys basketball team this season.
They’ll look different — think shorter — and play different — think faster — but the Soroco High School girls basketball team hopes to generate the same level of success it’s had in recent seasons.
One thought stood at the top of the mind of Soroco High School football coach Dick Dudas on Friday after the No. 15 Rams faced off against No. 2 Sargent in the first round of the Colorado 8-man playoffs. “They’re deserving of their ranking,” he said.
Sophomore racking up yards and touchdowns for playoff-bound Rams
If the Soroco Rams football team is to pull a huge upset Friday in the 8-man playoffs, it'll need a big game from sophomore running back Jace Logan. Fortunately for the team, he's come up with plenty of those this season.
The season came to an end for both the Soroco and the Hayden high school volleyball teams on Friday as they each went 0-2 in the District 5 tournament.
