AREA SPORTS BRIEFS
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado
The Glenwood Springs junior varsity girls basketball team defeated Summit 44-31 in Tuesday’s season opener. Hannah McDermott and Cassidy Gaddis paced the Demons to victory, with McDermott tallying 14 points and seven rebounds and Gaddis scoring eight points and dishing out eight assists.
Glenwood used its speed advantage to full-court press nearly the entire game. The guards, including Gaddis, Kristy Moore, Nikki Pearson and Haley Amichaux, provided a smothering defensive performance.
In the post, Glenwood found itself at a significant size disadvantage. Nonetheless, strong post play on both sides of the court came from McDermott, Sarah Davis, Nicole Kontour and Conner Adams to round out a team effort.
