Near the proverbial bubble’s edge, on the verge of cracking the CHSAANow.com Class 2A poll’s top ten before the holiday break brought to a close the 2015 half of their schedule, the Lady Bobcats – still the third-highest ‘Others Receiving Votes’ team – will look to resume their climb back into the realm of the ranked Friday, Jan. 8, at home against Ridgway in 2A/1A San Juan Basin League action.
Shane Seibel’s side will go in standing 4-2 overall, 1-0 in the SJBL, while the Lady Demons and new skipper Adam Dubroff (mastermind Steve Hill, as ever, won’t be far away) hope to build upon their most recent – albeit back on Dec. 11 – work put forth in a 52-22 trashing of non-league 1A Crested Butte Community School.
Which was an accomplishment; Non-league 2A Cedaredge hammered RHS 66-20 only two nights before.

MORE LEAGUE LOVE
Once high up the preseason Class 1A ladder at #5, Norwood – now a ‘Receiving Votes’ bunch – was the only other SJBL girls’ squad garnering statewide pre-holiday props. Veteran boss Greg King’s Lady Mavericks stood 5-1 overall before hosting Ouray (2-2) on the 8th in league action.
