The Red Devils girls basketball team lost regional games on Tuesday, Jan 14 and Thursday, Jan. 16, at home. The Emery Lady Spartans beat Grand by a wide margin in the Tuesday game and the Carbon Lady Dinos did the same on Thursday.

Not for lack of effort, playing consistently effective offense is something that continues to elude the young Red Devils. Megan Zunich was Grand’s leading scorer in both games. Josalyn Murphy, Tenney Cook and Madison Munger played tough defense, as they have all season.

Megan Zunich, (1), was the top scorer at a pair of home games played last week.

Tatum Scow snapped up a few rebounds in the game against Carbon and Marguerite Groene continues to evolve and mature into a clutch, deep penetration player for Grand County.

Freshmen Andrea Jones and Aliana Lazaro got some playing time against the Dinos.

The Red Devils will spend three games on the road before returning to Moab on Friday, Jan. 31 and Saturday, Feb. 1.
