MCHS girls varsity basketball secures 48-34 win

Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball — 2009-2010

Record: 10-13, 8-5 WSL

— In its second game of the Grandview Tournament, the Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team found its shot and the success that comes with it.

The team toppled Rangeview, 48-34, one night after falling to Montbello High School.

Coach Craig Mortensen said the Bulldogs excelled on both ends of the floor.

“It was a good win for the kids; they did great,” he said. “They’re just improving all the time, getting better all the time.”

For the second night in a row, the team moved the ball around well with multiple players chipping in, Mortensen said.

“It was a good, positive step forward tonight,” Mortensen said. “We’ve been playing a lot of kids, and everyone is contributing a little bit.”

The defense played better, but the offense carried the team, Mortensen said.

“I felt like we were more aggressive, a little more assertive in our offense,” Mortensen said. “We were taking the ball to the basket.”

The team again spread out the scoring, Mortensen said.

“Annie Sadvar had 12; she was our leading scorer,” he said. “The good thing is, we were struggling just a bit with our outside perimeter shooting, and tonight we made seven three-pointers. Adrie Camp made a couple of threes for us.”

The outside scoring resurgence was a welcome sight for the Bulldogs.

“It’s good to see,” Mortensen said. “When we start making our perimeter shots, it will bring the defenses out, then our inside game will be better.”

Moffat County will have its biggest challenge of the tournament at 7:30 p.m. today, when the Bulldogs play the tournament hosts.

“We’ll play Grandview and they’re good,” Mortensen said. “They’re really quick, big and good. It will be a very, very good challenge for us. We’ll have to play really well to hang in there with them.”
