The Glenwood girls final home meet is at 10 a.m. next Saturday at the Glenwood Springs Community Center.
Roaring Fork rolled past visiting Gunnison, 54-45, to improve to 6-2 overall.
Senior Dakotah Grett paced the Rams with 15 points and five assists in handing the Cowboys (1-6) the loss, but it was his ability to find open teammates that helped the Rams pull away from the visitors.
“We really got going once we started moving the ball around in the second quarter,” said Rams coach Larry Williams. “Grett did a good job finding the open man.”
Roaring Fork senior Trae Moxley had 14 points and 14 rebounds. The Rams (6-2) play at Aspen next Friday with tipoff at 7 p.m.
Senior Hattie Gianetti paced the Lady Rams with 17 points as Roaring Fork improved to 3-5 with a 54-22 win against Gunnison.

Glenwood Springs (7-3) played tough against a physical Delta squad before falling by ten to the Panthers (5-3).
“We’re used to dominating on the boards,” said Glenwood coach Jacky Gaddis. “Delta is very good and their big girls are really tough. We didn’t win but I was pleased with our effort.”
Senior Kenzie Nelson-Buehler and junior Delaney Gaddis led the Demons with 18 points each. Sophomore Madi Spence added ten points for the Demons. Glenwood plays at Palisade next Friday with tipoff at 6 p.m.
