The Hotchkiss basketball team ended the week in third place in 2A Western Slope League standings following two conference wins and a 56-55 conference loss to Vail Christian.
"We had an opportunity but we didn't finish some easy ones," said head coach Kyle Crowder of the Feb. 4 game against the No. 1-ranked Saints.
With just five games remaining on the schedule, the Hotchkiss Lady Bulldogs are 8-5 overall and remain undefeated in Class 2A Western Slope League play. They are currently in third place in the league behind No. 1 Meeker (13-1, 5-0) and Paonia (11-3, 4-0).
While dozens of wrestling duals and tournaments were canceled last week due to heavy snowfall throughout the region, the Hotchkiss Bulldogs managed to make the triangular dual with Palisade and Rangely Thursday night at Palisade. But they will have to make up for missing Saturday's Centauri team duals at La Jara.
