Century (10-3, 7-0 4A District 4-5) hosts Preston on Tuesday.

BONNEVILLE 55, HIGHLAND 42

Highland's big fourth quarter wasn't enough in Friday's 55-42 home loss to Bonneville.

The Rams outscored the Bees 25-19 in the final frame, but were in too big of a hole after trailing 25-11 at halftime and 36-17 after three quarters.

"The girls never quit," Highland coach Gino Mariani said. "Meghan Calley had a great fourth quarter. The Bees are a championship-caliber team, they have no weaknesses."
