Steamboat girls basketball team’s struggles continue
February 1, 2014
Steamboat Springs girls basketball coach Mack Spitellie said his team is slowly improving, but on Saturday, that still wasn't enough to snap a losing streak.
The Sailors lost their fourth in a row, falling at home against Rifle, 50-35.
"We just didn't play well as a team," Spitellie said. "We didn't have good chemistry tonight."
He pointed to good games from Maddie Robertson, especially defensively, and Amaris Duryea, Rifle's leading scorer.
"This is two games in a row Aramis has been Rifle's best girl, and she's done her job," Spitellie said.
The team, 7-8 and 2-6, next plays at home Friday against Palisade.

"We're slowly but surely getting better and getting more kids healthy," Spitellie said. "Hopefully, we can start playing together like a team, like we did at the beginning of the season."
