The Varsity’s 5:30 p.m. opener was never in question as they captured the Monument Valley Cougars, 61-47, behind a barrage of treys by Ashlyn Houston (five of her 20 points) and Anna Cutler (two for her 16), to go along with 6’4” Rylee Little’s 10 talleys. Likewise, in their 1:30 Championship contest against Parowan, convincingly won, 55-33, Ashlyn drained another four of her 20-point total, as did Anna with two of her 10. Rylee added another 10.

Of her team, the savvy point-guard says: “It’s really nice to have every girl on the floor who could score, help out. And we have really tall girls. Like, if our guards miss, we can, better than pass early, they’ll put it back in. So, it’s great!” Could she have in mind wily Rylee Little, 6’4” freshman center?

“We’re young; we’re getting better,” proclaimed Cowboys Coach Klint Glover, following the Varsity’s win over the Parowan Rams, their fellow 2A rivals. “We’ve got some really good young talent that we gotta’ develop, and there’s a lot of potential. But, we talked about our ‘potential,’ developing our potential, because you get beat with ‘potential’ a lot. So, anyway, they’re working hard: all of them are working hard to get better.


“We lost one of our better girls on Tuesday with a sprained ankle … Savannah Bateman; she’s been really good, too. So, we weren’t as deep as we normally are; so, we got a little tired. We played four games this week; so, we’re a little worn-out. But, we’re getting better!


“They toughened-up. We kinda’ do that on-purpose. We try to schedule a three-day weekend once in a while so we can see if we’re mentally tough enough to do it. It was good - just looking forward to getting better.”
