GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” A singles sweep helped Glenwood Springs to a 5-2 girls tennis win over visiting Vail Mountain on Saturday.

Madison McCallum, Courtney Bender and Jackie Nickel picked up wins at No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 singles, respectively, for the Demons.

No. 3 doubles duo Billie McCauley and Hannah Thimsen and No. 4 pair Sara Beckwith and Amber Kight also recorded wins for Glenwood.

PARACHUTE, Colorado ” Jeremy Lawrence struck out seven and pitched a complete game, helping Grand Valley’s baseball team to a 6-2 nightcap win and doubleheader split with visiting Basalt on Saturday.

The Cardinals lost the opener 11-8.

Jerrod Busch, Cameron King, Lawrence and Tyler Radel all had multiple hits for Grand Valley.

HOTCHKISS, Colorado ” A pair of 10-run rule baseball losses to Hotchkiss on Saturday left Coal Ridge baseball coach Steve Ryan wishing for consistency from his Titans.

Coal Ridge lost the day’s opener 12-2 and the nightcap by a count of 13-3 to drop to 0-5.

“We have streaks where we play very well, where we execute some pretty difficult baseball plays,” Ryan said. “Other times, we struggle with fundamentals.”

Josh Alsop’s 4-for-5 day at the plate and Kyle Dussault’s 3-for-4 hitting performances served as bright spots for the Titans.

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” Glenwood Springs held off visiting Basalt 2-1 in girls soccer on Saturday.

All three of the game’s goals came in the second half as the Demons improved to 3-1-0.

PARACHUTE, Colorado ” Grand Valley girls soccer coach Kelly Clark found silver lining in her Cardinals’ 3-0 loss to visiting Vail Mountain on Saturday.

“We did much better than last week,” said Clark, whose team lost its previous three games by a total of 17-0. “We’re much closer. We had some really good runs on goal by a few forwards, just none that produced a goal. I see progress.”

After spending two years as a junior varsity program, Grand Valley made the leap to the varsity level this season.
