Continental League girls hoops continues to get interesting as
the regular season starts to wind down.
With Highlands Ranch, ThunderRidge, Chaparral, Heritage and
Regis all in the hunt at one point for a possible league
championship, its still hard to see the cream separating from the
rest of the coffee. As of Feb. 11, the only undefeated team left in
the league was Highlands Ranch with an 8-0 record. The Falcons put
up a 72-42 win over ThunderRidge (8-1).
Before facing Ranch, T-Ridge put up key wins over Chaparral Feb.
4 in Parker by a 49-42 final. Wins over Castle View and Douglas
Chaparral carried a 5-3 league record into the Feb. 11 weekend
after it took the loss from the Grizzlies, had a loss prior to
Heritage and lost a one-point heartbreaker against Regis 61-60 in
Aurora. The Wolverines have put up recent wins against County and
Littleton, however, giving them a chance to still finish among the
top three depending on the season’s final games.
Against ThunderRidge, Ranch’s Michaela Neuhaus finished with 19
points having dropped four buckets from beyond the arc, and Katelyn
McDaniel had 17. T-Ridge’s Carlie Needles put up 20 points against
In the matchup between the Grizzlies and Chaparral, Needles had
19 points. She had 26 against Castle View.
Ranch also helped itself closer to the league title with a 71-51
win over Regis Feb. 5 in Aurora. McDaniel had 26 points in that
game Neuhaus had 19. Each of them dropped three from outside.
Ranch could all but claim the league’s bragging rights with a
win over Chaparral Feb. 15 in Parker, barring an upset from
Mountain Vista or Legend to end the regular schedule.
ThunderRidge closes their schedule against Ponderosa and
Littleton, both of which have struggled this season, while
Chaparral could hope to stay among the top four of the league with
wins over at least Mountain Vista and Castle View.
Results from Chaparral against Mountain Vista and Highlands
Ranch were unavailable at press time.
