On January 14th, your 8-0 Rye Lady “T - Bolts” hosted the Pueblo Centennial “Bulldogs” in a non-league contest. Rye was finally able to go up against a team that did not have any significant size advantage. Rye’s full-court press was working from the get-go, creating steals which led to layups. In addition, Junior Chloe Richardson was hitting jump shots from the top of the key. Rye pushed the pace, and at the end of the first half, led 32 - 21.

In the second half, Rye did have some bouts of “sloppy” passing. They also were getting caught under the basket, giving the “Dogs” three and four looks at the net. But, Rye kept running their game and took over, winning 62 - 32. Rye did get 31 rebounds, shot 56% from the field, and had 17 steals. Jolee Ortiz led Rye’s scoring with 18 points.

On January 16th, Rye took their 9 - 0 record to Swink to take on the “Lions”. According to Coach Spencer, “The girls wanted this one, they were laser sharp.” Rye took 51 shots from the hardwood, hitting 33% from two and three point land. They also hit 90% from the free throw line. The “T-Bolts” had 29 rebounds, and 16 steals. Rye blows by Swink, 48 - 11, and adds to their wins, now sporting and impressive 10 - 0 record.

Finally, on January 18th, Rye hosted the Hoehne “Farmers” for a conference match-up. Coach Spencer reflected “The girls came into this one tired.” It showed in the beginning. Rye was into the game for over two minutes before they scored their first points. There were also a lot of fouls called early, which slowed the pace. The full-court press was working for both teams, causing several turnovers for both teams. At the end of the first quarter, Hoehne was up 10 - 6. In the second quarter, Rye was again into the contest for two minutes before scoring. Rye just couldn’t get their shots to drop. On a positive note, Rye double teamed Hoehne’s big girls on the post-up, limiting their shot attempts from in close. Hoehne was up 12 - 10 at the half. “T - Bolt” fans looked a little nervous!
