The Lambkins got their first win of the season in a 1-0 pitchers’ duel against Westminster on Thursday at Fort Collins High School.
Fort Collins (1-1) rode the arm of sophomore Autumn Anderson, who had 14 strikeouts and allowed just two hits. Anderson’s teammates didn’t let her down, either, as Fort Collins committed no errors.
Shannon Seale, who was 2-for-3 for the Lambkins, scored the team’s run in the second thanks to an RBI single from Nikki Santner.
WINDSOR WINS LEAGUE MATCH —Windsor took the team title by eight strokes and three of the top five golfers were Wizards on Thursday at the Mad Russian Golf Course in Windsor’s fourth league match.
The Wizards were first with 231 points. Sterling was second with 239. Windsor’s Brett Krantz, who finished second, shot a 76. Krantz lost out to Sterling’s Ian Coberly. Where Windsor lost out at the top, it made up for in depth, as Ryan Lococo (third, 77) and Drew Mathern (T-fifrth, 78) rounded out a strong team showing for the Wizards.
Windsor plays Wednesday at Fort Morgan in its fifth league match.
REZ TOPS AT LEAGUE MATCH–Resurrection Christian took a league match on Thursday at Applewood Golf Course handily, winning by 36 strokes.
Three of the top five, including brothers Harrison and Warrent Turner, were Cougars, and Mason Munn was the only golfer to shoot par, winning the match with his 71 for Resurrection Christian.
The Cougars play another league match in Strasburg on Monday.
NIWOT 7, ROCKY MOUNTAIN 0 —The Lobos got a taste of top tennis in Niwot and came away wanting a measure of revenge after failing to win a set Thursday.
The Lobos’ Jason Kbrec, at No. 2 singles, was a bright spot. Kbrec played a two-hour, two-set match that had coach Bruce Malloy praising his efforts.
“He was a standout as far as his effort,” Malloy said.
Rocky Mountain (0-1) gets a chance for vengeance, albeit against a different opponent, when the Lobos travel to Steamboat Springs for a Saturday dual.
“They’ve seen high quality tennis, and they realize it’s something they can do as well,” Malloy said. “They want to get a bit of revenge; they want to take it out on somebody.”
FAIRVIEW 4, FORT COLLINS 0 — Inclement weather shortened the Fort Collins-Fairview boys tennis match Thursday at Fairview High School but Fairview won the four completed matches and so will win the dual.
However, the teams await clarification from the Colorado High School Activities Association on whether the remainging three matches can be finished at a later date, Lambkins coach Ed Kalin said.
Kalin said every match is important for regional seeding, so he and the Fairview coach had tentatively agreed to finish the remaining three matches later in the season.
Fairview won the No. 1 and No. 3 singles matches, dropping just one game in the process. Fort Collins also fell in No. 1 doubles 6-3, 6-2, and No. 2 doubles 6-3, 6-0.
