Cedaredge's Lady Bruins made big progress over the weekend with their 58-54 win over Moffat County's Bulldogs on Saturday. The victory gives Cedaredge a sweep over Moffat County after a 49-44 win in Cedaredge on Jan. 18.
Unfortunately for Cedaredge, the week began with a loss to the 3A league-leader Grand Valley 48-40. The Lady Bruins defeated Grand Valley 54-51 in Parachute on Jan. 11.
