Season highlights: Horton took on a much larger role for coach La Monte Weddle’s Raiders and provided a lot of all-around contributions to a team that made its debut in the City League (formerly the Denver Prep League) and finished 16-8 overall and earned the No. 14 seed in the Class 6A state playoffs. Horton more than doubled her scoring averaged, nearly tripled her rebounding average and bumped her stats up across the board as she earned 6A All-City League second team honors. She tallied a season-high 25 points in a 61-53 win over Denver South Feb. 11 and scored in double figures on 12 occasions. Horton also had four double-digit rebound games (including three games with 11) and it gave her four double-doubles, while she also paced her team in blocked shots and tied for second in assists. Horton earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
