Prep hoops: Glenwood Springs boys top Summit, 58-45; Gaddis plays big for Glenwood girls

FRISCO — Brian Burbidge and Jared Gambrel each finished with 14 points to lead the Glenwood Springs High School boys basketball team, which snapped a two-game losing streak with a 58-45 Class 4A Western Slope League victory over the Summit Tigers on Thursday night.

Glenwood Sophomore Cameron Horning added nine points and Zack Peterson chipped in eight for the Demons (10-3 overall, 5-2 4A WSL), who shot 46 percent from the field and, according to coach Cory Hitchcock, 58 percent from inside the paint.

“We had been playing tight for the past week,” Hitchcock said. “We needed to play a lot looser, and even I needed to loosen up as a coach. And once we relaxed, it really showed out there on the basketball court.”

Thomas DeBonville also scored 14 points to pace the Tigers (2-9, 2-5), who trailed only 29-24 at halftime. Glenwood, however, committed only 10 turnovers for the game.
