Season highlights: Gelinas’ emergence made life easier for Robert Dennis in his first season as Overland head coach, a campaign in which the Trailblazers finished 8-16 and qualified for the Class 5A state playoffs. Gelinas had varsity experience before, but really flourished in her senior season as she contributed in a variety of categories. Her average of 7.9 rebounds per game led the team and she got off to a great start with a season-high 18 rebounds in the opener against Brighton, while she had five double-doubles on the season and finished second on the Trailblazers with a scoring average of 8.4 points per game. Gelinas, who also averaged 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game, is a first-time A-Town All-Star Girls Game selection.
