BASKETBALL: 1A State Tournament Venue Change
Aurora, CO – A scheduling conflict with the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland has forced the Colorado High School Activities Association to move its Class 1A State Basketball Championships to Broomfield’s 1StBank Center on March 14-16, CHSAA officials announced today.
“Somehow there was a scheduling conflict between the CHSAA dates and the Colorado Eagles at the Budweiser events Center. Fortunately, it was discovered at a time where we were able to find a quality facility for this classification. It is somewhat frustrating to the 1A schools and the CHSAA as we try to find a more permanent home for them. However, we are pleased that the 1stBank Center is available for these games,” Assistant Commissioner Bert Borgmann, the CHSAA administrator in charge of the sport, said.
By establishing the new site now, Borgmann noted, it gives schools about a month to make alternate plans for housing and travel. The new site is located at 11450 Broomfield Lane in Broomfield just off US36 between Church Ranch Boulevard and Wadsworth Blvd.
Other state championship sites include: 2A – Massari Arena, Colorado State University-Pueblo; Moby Gym, Colorado State University-Fort Collins; 4A/5A – CU Events Center, Boulder.
