Sixth-grade girls AAU team improves
The sixth-grade girls AAU basketball team that competed in Greeley came back with an improved national ranking. The Bulldogs finished the weekend 2-6 in the Mid American Youth Basketball Tournament in Greeley. With wins against the Huskies from Washington and Fort Collins, the Bulldogs moved from the 19th-ranked team in its division to seventh.
