“We were trying to have a shutout, and our defense played great,” she said.

Next up, BHS hosts rival Aspen High School on Tuesday for the first of two games scheduled for the season. The matchup should prove interesting, Walker said, as the teams begin jockeying for playoff spots.

“They’re one of the other contenders for the three spots going to states,” she said. “You want to make sure you’re the one on top for a better playoff game.”
