Wwith the first game of the night, the Steamboat girls had a rough go offensively, scoring below the team’s season average with just 18 points. The Bulldogs took command and maintained a lead, winning the game 56-18. 

The girls team is now 6-16 on the year and remains winless in league play. The team will have one more opportunity to tally a league win this year.

The boys team also scored well below its season average but was able to stay strong defensively, winning the game 34-28. 

The team improves to 16-6 on the year and maintains an impressive 12-1 record in league play, where it sits at the top of the 4A Western Slope League.
