Lady Pirates finish second at state


    The Pagosa Springs High School Lady Pirates suffered their first and only loss of the season this evening (Saturday) during the state championship game, finishing the 2013-2014 season with a 25-1 record.

    The Pirates faced the Holy Family Tigers from Broomfield in the game — a team that entered the game with five championships in six years — and fell prey to the Tigers 52-45.

    The Pirates led for most of the game, but Holy Family tied the game 31-31 shortly before the end of the third quarter by scoring 16, including 10 free throws, and giving up only 8 to Pagosa.

    Holy Family is set to move to 4A for the 2014-2015 season.
