Huskies progress in loss to Rangeview

AURORA, Colorado ” Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Battle Mountain girls basketball has been taking its lumps recently starting 0-9, but the Huskies seemed to take a step in the right direction in a 58-29 loss at 5A Rangeview Tuesday night.

“Our defense is really stepping up,” Huskies coach Andrew Schmid said. “The score might not show it. Most of the points they scored were off turnovers. The turnovers are still killing us.”

The Huskies were within 13 points at halftime before the Raiders put up 20 in the third quarter. Kenia Olivas led the Huskies with 11 points, while Adriana Morken had eight.

Combined with a solid outing against Montrose on Monday, Schmid feels his team is ready for league play, which begins Friday at Steamboat Springs.

“It’s a good way to go into league,” Schmid said. “We’re figuring out what we’re trying to do and we want to win a few games this year. I think we’re a little more confident after the last two games.”
