FRIDAY UPDATE: Meeker girls’ JV team were bested by Grand Valley Thursday with a score of 40-52.
MEEKER | As the season opened last Friday, the girls’ varsity team took the court for the first time in the brand new gym as hosts to the Rangely Panthers. A young team, with no seniors, the scoring was led by junior Sarah Kracht with 25 points, nine of which came from her three 3-pointers. Brighton Bair and Savannah Mendenhall each had six points rounding out the top three scorers for the game. Defensively Bair was the top rebounder followed by Kracht, Jayden Overton, and Ainsley Selle.
The Saturday matchup with the Bruins found the Cowboys trailing at the half 40-13. Kracht, who once again broke 20 points, scoring 24 total points, 12 from three-pointers, led the team. The other ten points came from Hadley Franklin, Ellie Hossack, Overton, and Mendenhall. Scoring 34 points, the Cowboys couldn’t hold back the Bruins and fell 67-34.
Ending the first week 0-2, the team turns toward another week with home court advantage. Thursday against the Grand Valley Cardinals, JV to begin at 4:30 pm, the girls’ varsity will not have a game against Vail Mountain on Friday.
