Steamboat girls lacrosse falls to Summit
March 26, 2014
Steamboat Springs — After Wednesday afternoon's girls lacrosse game against Summit High School, Steamboat coach Betsy Frick assigned her team some homework.
"I said, 'I want everyone to think about one or two things you've learned from your opponents, what you'd like to do,'" Frick said.
A 19-0 loss to Summit left the Sailors plenty to consider, and Frick said she hoped her team could absorb some lessons from the lopsided game.
With few returning players and constant headaches — thanks to injuries and ineligibility — keeping the 18 girls on the roster on the field, it's a learning kind of season for the Sailors, who dropped to 1-3 on Wednesday.
The team had just one substitute for Wednesday's game, and several of the girls on the field were playing through injuries. If the team can pull lessons from its losses, however, Frick said progress can be made.
"It's a little tough," she said. "The players who are out there are having fun, working hard, improving, but it's a steep learning curve."
