Twin Telepathy 29.1.2016 Steamboat Pilot
The magic was apparent as soon as the Thompson twins started playing hockey in second grade. Their father, Curt Thompson, gave one a lefty stick and one a righty stick, so they could always play on the same line together, and it’s a combination that has led them to become the leaders of the Steamboat girls’ U19 hockey team this season. “They kind of have a twin telepathy. When we lived in Chicago, their coach there said the same thing,” said Sue Thompson, the girls’ mother. “They still seem to be doing that. We have one at left wing, one at right wing, and it’s pretty fun to watch.” Maddie and Emmie Thompson are both juniors at Steamboat Springs High School, having moved to the Yampa Valley with their family two-and-a-half years ago from a Chicago suburb. They have two younger brothers — eighth-grader, Jack, and fifth-grader, Charlie — who also have a background playing hockey. Having skied in the area throughout the years, the Thompsons moved to Steamboat prior to the girls’ freshman year of high ...

Aspen provides big early test for Steamboat hockey in Friday home opener 4.12.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Earlier this week, the Steamboat Springs High School hockey team converged at the Chief Theater to eat pizza and watch “Miracle,” the 2004 film about the 1980 U.S. men’s hockey team. That night, the Sailors selected captains and talked about their own expectations for the season. Many outside the program will likely consider it a miracle if Steamboat is among the Frozen Four later this winter, much of this opinion stemming from last season’s 3-16 record. But players such as senior wing Brendan Selby would assure any doubters, the team has moved on, and it’s a whole new year. Dec. 1, at Battle Mountain, 2-1 win Friday, vs. Aspen, 6:30 p.m. Saturday, at Resurrection Christian, 4:15 p.m. Dec. 11, at Lewis Palmer, 5:15 p.m. Dec. 18, vs. Summit, 6:30 p.m. Dec. 19, vs. Regis Jesuit, 3 p.m. Jan. 8, vs. Columbine, 6:30 p.m. Jan. 9, vs. Standley Lake, 3 p.m. Jan. 12, at Aspen, 6:15 p.m. Jan. 15, vs. Dakota Ridge, 6:30 p.m. Jan. 23, at Kent Denver, 5:45 p.m. Jan. 29, at Chatfield, 3:30 p.m. Jan. 30, at Monarch, 2 ...
