The Bruins girls' basketball team is in the hunt for a 3A WSL title again in 2018-19. With a 5-2 record, Cedaredge's losses have been to Centauri and Delta.
Cedaredge's boys are having somewhat of a roller coaster ride so far this season and rest in fourth-place with a 4-3 record.
The race for supremacy is keen this season with Delta and Grand Valley leading the 3A WSL race with 6-1 records.
Roaring Fork (7-3), Coal Ridge (6-3) and Moffat County (6-3) are also bidding for top notoriety, which promises to make the season an exciting one.
The Bruins are making strides to challenge the leaders for a top spot with seniors Courtney Freeman, Camie Baldozier, Dalia Alejandre and Hannah Gardner meshing with a bevy of underclassmen that compete to the last second every game.
Losses to Grand Valley and Delta have the Bruins motivated to perform at a higher level when play in the 2019 portion of their schedule gets underway.
Sophomore Kammie Henderson is leading Cedaredge scorers with an 11.7 average while pulling down a team-leading 6.3 rebounds a game. Junior Makayla Kehmeier has a 9.7 scoring average and rebounds at a 3.5 clip per game.
Freeman is the floor-leader and can score big any time. She is scoring 9.5 points a game and snags 3.7 rebounds and dishes out three assists a game.
Senior Jared Reynolds is a portion of the glue holding the Bruins together this season. His 16.3 points a game leads the offense with just over six rebounds and is third in assists with 2.6 and second in steals with 2.1 per game.
Senior Colby Rupp and sophomore Conner Brooks add eight points a game each to the Bruins' offense. Junior Owen Craig averages 7.7 points a game and leads the Bruins in rebounds with nearly 7 carroms a game.
Sophomore Alex Barron doles out 3.6 assists per game and steals just over four balls each game.
The Bruins are scheduled to host Aspen's Skiers Jan. 11 to open the 2019 portion of their basketball schedule.
