Heather brings the ball down court...
Tuesday evening, December 10...  In a match up with Faith Baptist from Longmont, the DPCA Varsity Girls and Boys teams split the evening, with the girls dropping their first game at home with a final score of 23 to 40, while the boys came out on top at 51-43.

The Eagle girls played with heart for all four quarters, but were unable to catch the Pioneers. Scoring for the Eagles was led by Heather Burdges, who added 12 points to the scoreboard, followed by Alli Dages with 8.  Cailyn Willis and Sarah Dages also contirbuted some points to the evening's total.  Katie Busch led the team in rebounds, followed closely by Alli Dages.

The Eagle boys started off with strength, winning the tip to start the game, but then began to fall behind and ended the first half trailing the Pioneers 16-25.  In an exciting second half comeback, the boys rallied and were able to begin regular season play with an opening win at home.  Joel Parker had a big night, leading the Eagles' scoring with 26 points. Behind Joel was Noah Ritschard with 13, with Jase Staudt, Seth Turner, and Levi Jelinek all adding points to the scoreboard as well.  Joel led the Eagles at the boards with 14 rebounds, followed by Noah and Hawk White.
