The girls basketball team placed third in 3A state after a 49-47 win against the Pagosa Spring Pirates on March 9th. Reds placed third after losing 20 – 54 against the St. Mary Pirates, sending them to the consolation game against Pagosa. Reds led in scoring throughout the game, leading 22 – 19 at half time of the game.

One standout player was junior Addie Randel, who scored 16 of the teams points. Randel credited the success of the game to the teams connection and communication, saying “We created an amazing bond because basketball is not the only thing that unites us, we have the ability to hang out outside of practice”.

Coach Todd Hernandez agreed that the connection of the team contributed to their third place win. Hernandez also commented that many spectators underestimated the ability of the team, but were proven wrong after the girls placed third. Hernandez stated, “I was extremely pleased with the outcome of the season.  Not many people thought we would be able to accomplish what we did, and if the girls grow their skills, we have a chance to get back to state in 2020”.
