Devils baseball tops Eagles
Believe it or not, high school teams actually played Thursday.
In Paonia, Eagle Valley baseball got a 7-3 nonconference win against the host Eagles. Pitcher Dylan Trudeau went the distance to pick up the win.
“It’s definitely a great win,” Devils skipper Jesse Meryhew said. “That’s a solid team. We want to continue the momentum. Dylan threw well, and the guys behind him made good plays.”‘
Eagle Valley baseball (2-3) hosts Summit County Tuesday.
Meanwhile in Gypsum, Eagle Valley girls lacrosse fell to Summit County, 11-3. Morgan Trujilo had two scores for the Devils, while Devine Hart also found the back of the net.
“It’s tough. We’ve got lots of pieces, but we’re not fitting them together,” said Devils coach Patrick Johnson. “I’ve got to find the fit. We’ve got great lacrosse players.”
The Devils host Durango today at 5:30 p.m.
As for the snow, Battle Mountain girls lacrosse did not go to Conifer, nor did the Conifer boys lacrosse team make it to Edwards. Roaring Fork at Vail Mountain soccer was wiped out as was Devils soccer in Steamboat. Battle Mountain soccer’s date with Silver Creek, scheduled for Saturday, has been moved to Monday.
