Suiting up for the 2021 CHSCA All-State Games' Girls' Basketball Blue team, 1A Mosca Sangre de Cristo's Avery Palmgren (21) calculates how to break Red's pressure, led by 3A Denver Bishop Machebeuf's Denise Perez (31), during the third-place game played this past Friday, July 2, inside CSU-Pueblo's Massari Arena. Recovering from the previous night's 74-42 semifinals loss to Black, Blue would pull out a 63-61 win over Red, with Palmgren totaling six points in the contests. With 2A Center's Jan Vigil coaching in tandem with 4A Broomfield Holy Family's Ron Rossi, White would first defeat Red 51-42 in the semis, then down Black 64-51 on Day 2 to earn the tourney title.
