Area basketball: Hayden girls continue hot streak

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Hayden High School girls basketball team lost its first game of the year at the Encampment Tournament on Friday, Dec. 13. However, the Tigers are now 6-1 and looking great on both sides of the ball.

Hayden kicked off the tournament with a 46-28 victory over Rock River, outscoring the team 28-12 in the first half. Seniors Alex Camilletti and Joey Deckler as well as junior Lee Anna Nelson netted a team-high nine points.

Later that day, the Tigers were sluggish against Hanna Elk Mountain, which led Hayden 15-11 at half time due to cold shooting from the Tigers. The girls in orange and black got more aggressive, drove to the basket and drew fouls. They shot 7-of-11 from the free throw line in the second half. However, they still fell 40-37.

Saturday saw different results. The Tigers came out with intensity again, developing a 23-13 halftime advantage over Encampment.

“All players were focused and really attuned to execution on offense and building each other up on the court,” said Hayden head coach Lori Raper in a text.

In the final game, just junior varsity players took to the court. Sophomore Alison Rajzer paced the offense, scoring 13 points in the 42-38 win over previously undefeated Cheyenne East.
