Pirate Megan Farrah reaches for a loose ball with teammate Taylor Lee-Hammer during the team’s 69-30 victory over the Colorado Academy Mustangs in last weekend’s Sweet 16 round of the 3A state tournament.

The Lady Pirates are 23-0 heading into the Great 8 today in Golden, with only three games between them and what they hope will be the school’s first state championship trophy for girls’ basketball.
