Lian Ramiro will have a permanent green light to shoot for the Grandview boys basketball team in the upcoming winter season and the senior-to-be guard looks ready to take full advantage.
Working towards generating more interest from Colorado programs, Ramiro put a full arsenal of skills — including deadly outside shooting — on display as the Wolves went 6-0 to win the annual C3 Challenge summer tournament June 13-15 at Heritage High School.
Coach Michael Rogers’ team played without some of its expected regulars, but Ramiro and fellow senior-to-be Caleb McGill were the driving forces as Grandview went on to beat Mountain Vista to win the tournament title for the second straight season.
Ramiro’s hot shooting was a big reason the Wolves got off to a strong start to the tournament, which included a 66-45 victory over Vista PEAK in the matchup of the two Aurora teams in the 14-team field played on June 13.
Coach Keenon Clement’s Bison were shorthanded for the majority of the tournament and had just six players on the final day. Vista PEAK finished 2-4 overall.
