Soroco girls now 6-0 following hoops win over Meeker; boys suffer first loss

The Soroco High School girls basketball team continues to dominate the Western Slope, winning 61-45 against Meeker at home Saturday. The Rams are now 6-0 and ranked No. 14 in the 2A RPI standings.

Junior Kayedence Bruner led the offense with 22 points off of five 3-pointers. Senior Makinley Parker followed with 12 points, while junior Peyton Parker added 10.

The boys team lost its first game of the year, falling 70-46 to Meeker. They are now 5-1 and are No. 20 in the RPI standings.

A slow first quarter that resulted in a 19-5 Meeker lead doomed the Rams from the start. Soroco outscored the Cowboys 34-31 over the next two quarters but was never able to close the gap.

Junior Joey McLaughlin led Soroco with 14 points, followed by senior Liam Yaconiello with 10 and junior Luke Duksa with 8 points.
