RANGELY I The middle school girls from Meeker and Rangely concluded their basketball seasons Saturday with the final tournament in Steamboat Springs.
The finale of the tournament was the eighth-grade championship game featuring Rangely and Craig.
Rangely had a two-year undefeated record to defend, and the Bulldogs were set on stopping them. The Panthers played outstanding ball and kept their streak alive, winning their final middle school game, 39-38.
The team is an up-tempo, tenacious, defense-playing group that makes the future of Rangely basketball look very bright.
Katelyn Brown had a game that ranks above all-time great middle school performances, scoring 35 points and going 13 for 16 from the free throw line.
She had a total of 191 points for the season. Combined with her approximate 20-point average for sixth and seventh grades, she scored more than 500 points in junior high. Teaming Katelyn up with a team that works hard, plays hard and knows how to win and the result is likely to be an undefeated team.
Along with the championship team from Rangely, Meeker’s seventh-grade girls ended their season with only one loss and as tournament runner-ups. The seventh-grade girls from Rangely finished the tournament in third, and the eighth-grade girls from Meeker came out fourth.
