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).
They host the Buena Vista Lady Demons (5-8, 3-3, 3A Tri-Peaks League) tonight at 5:30 p.m. The non-conference match was originally scheduled for last Friday night, but was postponed due to heavy snowfall.
This Saturday Hotchkiss hosts a conference game against Plateau Valley (7-5, 2-1). In December Hotchkiss played to a 38-24 win over the Lady Cowboys.
Hotchkiss will host conference games against Meeker on Feb. 14, and at Rangely (1-14, 1-4) on Feb. 15. The Lady Bulldogs will play the final scheduled game on Feb. 18, at Paonia before heading into the district tournament.
The Hotchkiss boys basketball team schedule was unaffected by last week's snow storm. The Bulldogs (10-3, 4-0) are in second place in the 2A/1A WLS.
Hotchkiss hosted No. 1 Vail Christian (10-2, 3-0) on Feb. 4. (A win would put them in first place in the league. See the Feb. 12 issue of the DCI for game details.) They travel to De Beque (3-10, 0-4) this Friday for a conference game.
And while they won early-season games against them, the Bulldogs still face conference games against No. 4 Meeker (11-3, 6-0) and No. 5 Rangely (10-4, 5-1) on Feb. 14 and 15. On Feb. 18 Hotchkiss will close its regular season schedule against No. 3 Paonia (9-4, 4-0). This is the third game of the season for the rival teams, which split their first two games.
Hotchkiss pulled off a two-point win in December at the Delta County tournament, and Paonia held Hotchkiss to two fourth-quarter points to win, 60-55, in overtime in January.blog comments powered by Disqus
