Palisade’s Christa Brown eyes the basket from outside the paint during a Jan. 21 game against Steamboat Springs in Palisade. A four-year starter for the Bulldogs, Brown helped Palisade win 33 consecutive Class 4A Western Slope League games — a streak that spanned three seasons.

Stealing the Show

Palisade's Christa Brown helps elevate Bulldogs

Christa Brown has always scooped up steals, even from a young age.

But there was a point in Brown’s career, well before her senior season at Palisade High School, where her coaches made sure to yell “jump stop” as loudly as possible the minute she picked off a pass.

She’s always had the instincts. Years of work, both by herself and with her three older sisters, gave her a knack for stealing the basketball. Somewhere along the line, her skills and coordination caught up with her explosive athleticism and heady play. Brown developed her talents and honed them, becoming one of the best all-around players on Colorado’s Western Slope.
