ALAMOSA — Hunter Gerber finished with a game-high 19 points and Brandon Herrera added five for Coal Ridge High School’s boys basketball team, which wasn’t able to keep up with the seventh-seeded Alamosa Mean Moose on Friday night in a 60-29 loss in the first round of the Class 3A state tournament.

The Mean Moose, who got 16 points from Ryan Brubacher, limited the Titans (11-12 overall) to just six first-half points.

Coal Ridge will graduate four seniors off of this year’s team: Ruben Ruiz, Sergio Cano, Jacob Funes and Michael Solis.

“That last game may not have been what they wanted, but they played hard to the end and did it with class,” Coal Ridge coach Paul Harvey said. “They will be better men in the future from all of the hard work they put into our program.”

Alamosa will play Grand Valley today for a trip to the Great 8 next week in Golden. Grand Valley defeated Manitou Springs, 81-70, during another first-round game later in the day.

GIRLS: VALLEY 54, COAL RIDGE 38

MANITOU SPRINGS — The Titans (11-12 overall) played right with the Vikings at the beginning of the game, but Valley pulled away with a big second-quarter scoring spurt on their way to a first-round victory against Coal Ridge.

Valley’s outside shooting made the biggest difference in the first half, turning what was a 12-11 deficit for Coal Ridge into a 27-13 halftime cushion for the Vikings. The Titans were outscored 18-6 in the second quarter.

Mariela Martinez finished with 13 points and Kaitlyn Detlefsen added 10 for the Titans in the loss. For Valley, Mikayla Crespen finished with a game-high 14 points to lead the Vikings (15-8).

“They were just a really good outside shooting team,” first-year Coal Ridge coach Steve Young said. “We set up different defenses and tried to give them different looks, but they just kept hitting shots.”
