Tigers’ crazy week ends in loss

Melinda Mawdsley

A week of early morning practices and evening commitments may have caught up to the Hayden girls basketball team in a 38-42 loss to Baggs, Wyo., on Friday.

The Tigers looked sharp through one half Friday, leading the visiting team from Baggs, 20-16, after the first 16 minutes, coach Jamie Adams said.

But Hayden lost the lead in the final four minutes of the fourth quarter, and Baggs went on to win by four points.

“We pressed the whole first half, and a lot of the girls have been sick, and it was a really busy week,” Adams said. ” I think I wore them out.”

Hayden’s girls were forced to practice at 6:45 a.m. during the days leading up to the Friday game because the gym was booked after school and in the evenings.

A fund-raising dinner and a choir concert also tied up some of the Hayden players’ time.

Overall, however, Adams said the team played well, particularly on defense.

Lauren Branstetter scored a team-high 14 points for the Tigers. Kim Medvesk chipped in with eight points.

Aly Boyd and Jamie Waugh each had eight rebounds.

Jessica Garvin of Baggs scored 22 of the team’s 42 points. The two teams meet again Jan. 27 in Wyoming.

Hayden closes out the early portion of its schedule this week against league-favorite North Park at 4 p.m. Friday. The JV team plays at 1 p.m.
