DENVER, Colorado – Kenzie Kuhn scored 21 points as Glenwood Springs’ girls basketball team rolled to a 62-25 win at Denver Christian on Friday.

Lexie Warkentin scored 15 points and Sarah Treese had 10 for the Demons, who improved to 3-4.

Glenwood put the game away early with its press.

“We came down and made a basket and then just started pressing,” Demons coach Bryan Derby said. “We were working on a lot of things tonight. We worked on getting rebounds, getting the outlet pass and running. They did a good job with it.”

Next up for the Glenwood Spring girls is a 1 p.m. trip to Platte Canyon this afternoon.

DENVER, Colorado – Glenwood Springs’ boys emerged on the short end of a 63-61 overtime heartbreaker at Denver Christian on Friday.

“It was a good game between a couple scrappy teams,” Demons coach Greg Hire said. “The difference was we had quite a few turnovers and a lack of rebounds. They pretty much outrebounded us.”

Glenwood dropped to 4-4 with the loss.

MONTROSE, Colorado – Tyler Rust’s 28 points lifted Rifle to a 71-65 boys win over Palisade in Friday’s Black Canyon Tourney opener at Montrose.

Rian Creech added 11 points and Tyrel Lenard scored 10 for the Bears, now 2-2.

MONTROSE, Colorado – Cortney Cordova scored 19 points and Ciara Euler added 15 for Rifle’s girls in a 66-61 loss to Fruita at the Black Canyon Tournament in Montrose on Friday.

“We just got into foul trouble,” Rifle coach Stephanie Heald said. “They went 21-for-25 at the line. If it wasn’t for that, I think we could have had it.”

The Bears (2-3) play Pueblo West and Montrose as the tournament resumes today.

BASALT, Colorado – Grand Valley’s boys defeated host Basalt, 57-47, on Friday.

The Cardinal girls, meanwhile, lost a heartbreaker to the Longhorns, 44-42.
