5A Continental girls hoops: ThunderRidge downs Chaparral, Highlands Ranch takes Grizzlies

Posted

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 County followed.

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 the Falcons.

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.
