Demons drop close game to D’Evelyn

DENVER – Jacky Gaddis couldn’t believe the amount of compliments she received from her opponent’s parents.

“I would guess that there must have been about 10 or 12 sets of parents from D’Evelyn’s side who came up to me and told me how enjoyable of a game that was to watch,” the Glenwood Springs High School girls basketball coach said following her team’s 47-44 loss to D’Evelyn in the second round of the Class 4A state tournament.

“There’s a lot of people out there who wonder about the quality of the teams on the Western Slope,” she continued. “They keep saying things like, ‘I wonder, I wonder.’ Well, tonight we proved that we could play with these top teams.”

Madi Spence scored a game-high 17 points and Jordan DeCrow added 10 points to pace the Demons, who owned a slim two-point advantage after the first quarter but found themselves playing catchup for much of the game.

A turnover from Glenwood in the final moments of the fourth quarter, however, sealed the win for D’Evelyn.

The Demons finished the season with a 14-9 overall record.
