The final dual meet of the season wasn't going any different.

Widefield 45, Harrison 44

At Harrison: Harrison (5-12 overall, 2-4 4A Colorado Springs Metro League) rallied from a 31-16 halftime deficit, but Widefield (4-12, 3-3) held on to win its second road game of the season.

Senior Quincy Harding had 19 points and his brother Quinzel Harding had 13, but the Panthers still lost their fifth game in their past six.
