SSHS girls lacrosse falls to Eagle Valley

Steamboat Springs High School Sailors

— In what coach Betsy Frick called a “hard fought, physical game,” the Steamboat Springs High School girls’ lacrosse team fell short of host Eagle Valley on Friday, losing 19-11.

The Sailors trailed 10-4 at halftime and played the game without any subs. Frick said it was probably the most consistent defensive effort she’s seen in her seven years as coach.

Freshman Lucy Shimek led the Sailors with five goals, while senior Becky Brown had four. Brittney Starks had seven saves in net.

Steamboat, 2-3, will play Telluride at 11 a.m. Saturday in Grand Junction.
