Things didn't start well for the Fruita Monument girl's basketball team on Friday night. They trailed Fountain-Fort Carson 10-7 after one quarter, but turned it on in the 2nd half for the 58-44 win over the Trojans.
"They hit some shots early and got them in the game, but fortunately we adjusted an played a little better defense, getting the rebounds when we needed them," said head coach Michael Wells.
Senior Riley Snyder lead all scorers with 18 points, while Samiyah Worrell had 14 to lead the Trojans.
Fruita Monument will now host Denver East next Tuesday in the Sweet 16.
