The Olathe Lady Pirates were favored to win last Tuesday's non-conference basketball game at Hotchkiss, but they had to work for the win after holding a narrow, four-point lead in the fourth period. The Lady Pirates eventually won the game 47-34.
The Bulldogs wrestling team won two championships — both in lower weights, and placed six wrestlers to take fifth place at Saturday's Eagle Valley Invitational. At 113 pounds, senior Garrett Toothaker (11-4) was favored to win the tournament and was 3-0 for the day, pinning Raul Lopez of Eagle Valley in 53 seconds for the championship.
The Rangely boys basketball team probably expected trouble from Hotchkiss, but it wasn't prepared for River Panish. The junior guard put up a game-high 24 points, including 19 points in the first half, to lift the Bulldogs to a 57-43 non-conference win Saturday over Rangely (6-2).
