Last year's Cedaredge Bruins girls' basketball team had a marvelous season and finished with one of the best records in Class 2A basketball, 20-4. Three of the four losses came against league foe Paonia. The Bruins finished sixth in last year's state tournament after a 45-36 loss to Paonia in consolation play in Pueblo.

This year's squad is poised to make yet another run at post-season play with plenty of talent returning from last season's squad.

Third-year Bruins' coach Ryan Hilbig will have an experienced team that will be led by seniors Nellie Freeman and Kendall McHugh and junior Hannah Gilmore.

Other seniors on this year's roster include Sierra Baldozier and Lacey Love. Junior contributors will be Hailey Henrie, McKayla McKinney and Callie Wasser.

Make no mistake about the Bruins being in the hunt for league and state honors, as they will feature plenty of backup players who will contribute heavily to this year's team.

Back to assist Hilbig in the coaching department is Carrie Berger (four years), Haley Benson (four years) and volunteer assistants Greg Medill and Kayla Jubert.

Hilbig is confident in his team's ability and has high expectations for the Bruins. "Our team is competing for the top spot in the state and in league play."

The Bruins swept through last week's First Colorado National Bank tournament with three wins over Olathe, Coal Ridge and Delta.

Next on Cedaredge's schedule is a road contest against Roaring Fork on Dec. 12 at 3 p.m.
