DENVER After being ranked #1 in the state for most of the seaosn, the Pueblo South girls basketball team fell one game short of a state title Saturday.
Evergreen beat the Colts 45-35 winning the 4A State Crown.
"We worked as hard as we could. This has been the greatest experience I have ever had. It hurts." said South sophomore Gabi Lucero.
"There are a lot of teams sitting home right now, that would pay a lot of money to be on the floor and be under that spotlight in the championship game so I told the girls there is nothing for them not to be proud of. They are a very good team and they did a great job." said South head coach Shannan Lane.
The Colts finish the season 25-3.
