GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” The Glenwood Springs JV girls team split games over the weekend. On Friday, the team lost to the Moffat County Bulldogs, and on Saturday the team bounced back with a solid performance and beat the Steamboat Springs Sailors by 10 points.

In the first half against Moffat County, the team started out slow. They took too long to effectively handle the pressure defense and as a result were not able to score effectively. In the second half, the overall effort increased significantly and the Demons made some progress but they were not able to overcome the challenging start.

The next day the team traveled to Steamboat and put together a much better game, gaining the momentum early and never trailing in the contest. The team started out quickly, paced by a stellar performance from Sarah Treese.

Treese was very effective on offense scoring 10 points in the half. She was also put in charge of guarding one of the Sailors top performers and her aggressive defense and rebounding helped her team gain the early momentum.

In the final quarter, Steamboat pressed and attempted to get back into the game. The Demons were able to maintain their scoring lead as Kristy Moore scored all five of her points in the critical final period.

The leading scorers in the game were Cassidy Gaddis with 11 points, Treese with 10 and Hannah McDermott with nine points. Haley Amichaux and the sister pairing of Nikki and Josie Pearson provided the playmaking and pressure defense.
