Lily Johnson (10) hits the court.

The Englewood Varsity basketball team lost Monday’s home non-conference game against Platte Canyon (Bailey, CO) by a score of 42-37. Lily Johnson, Hannah Droshagen, Megan Trail, and Diamonte Martinez played a strong game. “The game went great but there is always room for improvement and our team has connected well,” Megan Trail (11) said. “I grew a lot from last year and my intentions are to keep growing as an athlete. Our team has improved and we can only go up from here. Knowing the Lady Pirates we will continue to improve,” Hannah Droshagen (11) said. 

     JV won its game, 28-24. Flora Martinez, Alejandra Aparicio, Mimi Hernandez, Gaby Winterhalder-Sifuentes and Shy Clanton are starters. Clanton says everyone had their moments, “It is hard to tell who did the best because everyone had a few great plays. We had to combine C-team and JV because we had so many players ineligible.” The Platte Canyon team only had six players but they put up a good fight. 

     The teams play twice a week until the holiday break and start up again after the new year. The Englewood varsity basketball team lost Monday’s home non-conference game against Platte Canyon (Bailey, CO) by a score of 42-37.
