Notable 5A, 4A performances for the week of Jan. 13

Here’s a list of notable performances in Class 5A and Class 4A boys/girls basketball for the week culminating on Saturday, Jan. 13.

Class 5A Boys

No. 3 ThunderRidge 68, No. 6 Regis Jesuit 58 on Friday: The Grizzlies (13-1) handed the Raiders (10-3) their second straight ten-point loss to a ranked foe in the Continental League opener in Highlands Ranch. The senior point guard combo paced the way for ThunderRidge, as Kaison Hammonds had a game-high 23 points and Tyson Cruickshank added 13.

Arvada West 55, Lakewood 53 on Friday: There were plenty of dramatics between the longtime Jeffco League rivals, with the Wildcats (8-5) coming out on top in a back-and-forth affair with the Tigers (3-9). Arvada West found itself down three late in the fourth quarter, but closed the game on a 5-0 run thanks to clutch buckets from seniors Hayden Spiegler and Isaiah Brewer.

Class 4A Boys

Longmont 68, Niwot 28 on Tuesday: In his 24th season as the Trojans’ head coach, Jeff Kloster earned win No. 400 in a blowout at home over the Cougars (1-10). Longmont (6-1) senior point guard Luke Johnson paced Kloster’s squad to the signature victory with a game-high 22 points, while junior Oakley Dehning had 10 as the Trojans continue to play like a team that can build on Kloster’s six semifinal appearances.

Thompson Valley 51, No. 4 Silver Creek 43 on Thursday: In a Northern League bout, the Eagles (8-3) jumped out to a 13-0 advantage and held on for the upset thanks to a game-high 22 points by senior Justin Wiersema. Senior center Jared Kasprzak also had 14 to hand the Raptors (9-1) their first loss. Silver Creek was led by 15 points from senior Trent Dykema, but 11 second-half turnovers prevented a comeback.

Class 5A Girls

No. 7 Horizon 61, Fairview 40 on Friday: The Hawks (12-1) celebrated the 25th reunion of their 1993 state championship team before routing the Knights (8-5) in Front Range League action. Senior Izzy Allen led a balanced scoring effort with 18 points while junior forward Samantha Deem added 13 in a deep lineup where the fifth leading scorer, junior center Arielle Wisne, just verbally committed to play hoops at Indiana.

No. 4 Cherry Creek 54, Arapahoe 38 on Friday: Recent Stanford commit Jana Van Gytenbeek once again showed what all the hype is about, leading the Bruins (8-3) with 19 points to the Centennial League victory over the Warriors (7-6). But don’t overlook Arapahoe’s youth movement down the stretch, as highlighted by the guard trio of sophomore Kali March, junior Grace Cadorette and junior Eliana McClarie.

Class 4A Girls

No. 7 Valor Christian 55, No. 2 Golden 53 on Wednesday: Eagles freshman Kindyll Wetta led all scorers with 22 points despite departing the game early due to injury as Valor Christian (10-2) also had strong showings from junior Sara Nealy (19 points) and senior Stephanie Coors (11 rebounds). Senior Abby Garnett, senior Makena Prey and sophomore Elli Garnett all scored in double figures for Golden.

No. 9 Holy Family 59, No. 10 Windsor 44 on Friday: In a Tri-Valley League bout, the Tigers (11-2) continue to assert their conference dominance behind the play of senior do-everything guard/forward Izzy Hren. Holy Family closed the game out strong to prevent a comeback, while junior center Ally Kennis’ 20 points provided the bright spot for the Wizards (7-4) in their loss.
