Lady Spartans end season with a bad loss to Rifle

The thought of a three and a half hour bus ride did not bother the Lady Spartan basketball program . This was the state tournament , the second half of the season and everyone whether they were a favorite to win it all or not felt like they have a chance at a state title. The Lady spartans played a great half of basketball according to the coaching staff , even after the familiar slow start that has plagued them all season , but coming out at the half foul trouble and defensive letdowns and poor rebounding allowed the lady bears of Rifle to build a lead they would never relinquish. The end result was a 29 point blow out loss and a first round exit from the tourney.
