GUNNISON—The Gunnison girls basketball team made the best of a tough situation, but ended with a 51-30 loss anyway when they hosted Summit Academy, ranked No. 5 in 2A, for their season opener.
The Lady Bears led by nine at halftime and broke the game open in the third quarter, outscoring the Lady Bulldogs 17-9.
