Steamboat girls tennis team wins over Glenwood Springs

The Steamboat Springs High School girls tennis team won 5-2 at home over Glenwood Springs on Saturday, but it didn’t come easy.

The victory was ultimately decided by a pair of tiebreakers, that if both went the other way would have given the Demons the win.

Steamboat led 3-2 over Glenwood thanks to wins from singles players Evan Quinn and Grace Brice over Glenwood players Kenzie Winder and Miah Suarez, and the doubles team of Sloane Speer and Amanda Dietrich over Glenwood’s Siri Henderson and Mattea Enewold.

No. 2 singles player Kelsey Norland won the first set, 6-3, over Suarez but lost the second, 6-2, to force a 10-point tie breaker. Norland won the tie breaker 10-5, sealing the team win for Steamboat.

Demons wins came from the No. 1 doubles team of Ella Henderson and Emily deMoraes (6-2, 6-3). Glenwood’s Nos. 3 and 4 doubles teams of Hellen Bolton and Cate Williams and Sofia Mohl and Amanda Dehm also scored wins.

Glenwood stands at 2-5 overall on the season and 2-3 in league. The Demons play at Basalt on Monday and host Vail Mountain for the season finale on May 26 at the Glenwood Springs Community Center.
