GREENWOOD VILLAGE — The Boulder girls basketball team lost in the second round of the Class 5A state tournament on Friday night, falling to host Cherry Creek 51-40.

The Panthers dug themselves a hole from which they were never able to climb out of, trailing 17-0 after the first quarter. Playing against a much taller Bruins’ squad, the seventh-seeded Panthers attempted to pack it in on defense and force their opponent to hit shots from outside.

No. 2 seed CCHS obliged, hitting three of their first five attempts from 3-point land as they built the insurmountable lead.

BHS played better after the first eight minutes, cutting the lead to seven at half. But offensive struggles plagued them again in the third, as Creek put the game out of reach.

Vivi Gregorich led the way for the Panthers, scoring 13 points on the night.

Boulder finishes with a 14-11 record on the season.
