Despite a 13-2 run to close out the game, the Summit High girls’ basketball team lost 38-34 in the first round of the Mountain Madness Tournament to host Woodland Park.

Junior Jessica Malknecht scored 14 points, and senior Davia Carr added six.

“We just started really sluggish,” head coach Rachel Dunaway said. “They just couldn’t find their legs.

“We had the run at the end and had a chance to win it, though.”

Dunaway said Woodland Park’s man-to-man defense gave her team trouble early on, but the Summit coach was happy with the way her team fought back.

The Tigers (1-2) play Coronado High School in the second round of the tournament at 5:30 p.m. tonight.
