BOULDER — Shots kept falling. And they all seemed perfectly timed for the moment.

Pueblo South went on an 18-4 run early in the second half to pull away from D’Evelyn in the Class 4A girls basketball championship game Saturday afternoon at CU’s Coors Events Center. The Colts then cruised to a 66-42 victory to claim their first state title since 1994.

“It’s just history,” said Pueblo South coach Shannan Lane, who was a guard on that 1994 team. “I told them last night when we had our team meeting: ‘You’re making history.’ When they’re 60, 70, 80, and they had a team that won state, they’re always going to remember that. How special is that?”

The Colts (26-2) won because they were able to cool D’Evelyn’s long-range attack, and a 39-22 edge in rebounding didn’t hurt.
