On Jan. 20, the Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team lost 54-39 to Delta and fell two games back in the Western Slope League title race. But, the Bulldogs never wavered from their league title aspirations, and went on to win the remaining eight games on their schedule, including victories at Delta and over Glenwood Springs. The late-season win streak earned MCHS a three-way split of the league title on Friday, and on Sunday the Bulldogs learned they’d be a No. 3 seed in the 4A state basketball playoffs and have a first-round bye. MCHS has the best seed of the five WSL teams to earn a berth in the state tournament.
