    By Christopher Bolin

    For Conifer girls tennis, the Class 3A state tournament was a learning experience.

    The Lobos may have finished with zero points, but what they lacked in results, they more than made up for in experience.

    Of the four qualifiers — Hattie Dahlin and Ava Dalton at No. 1 doubles and Jessie Levesque-Etling and Marissa Rocconova at No. 2 doubles — none had ever played in a state match.

    None of them are not seniors, and Dalton is just a freshman.

    STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Conifer High School boys lacrosse coach Dak Riecke said his team had studied Steamboat Springs on film, and when the Lobos and Sailors met Wednesday evening in Steamboat, they knew what to stop: the most skilled Sailors from curling around the back of the net to work in the alleys in front of the goal.

    “We talked about it all week,” Riecke said. “We saw it on film. We knew they’d run with that, but they ran it perfectly.”

    By Anthony Sandstrom

    PUEBLO — The Evergreen girls tennis team may have found itself at the 4A girls tennis state tournament at Pueblo City Park Thursday, but it felt a bit like a fancy dual against Durango.

    The Evergreen state qualifiers — No. 1-singles player Zoe Love, Alexa Endsley at No. 2 singles, and the No. 1 doubles team of Saphie Potts and Jen Lawrence — each dropped first-round matches to Durango, prematurely ending the Cougars’ showing at the state tournament.
