1A GIRLS SOUTHERN PEAKS

State Tournament Projections

Basketball clubs continue to gear up for the fast approaching 2019-20 season and Colorado Preps continues the rundown of top players and teams from each conference.  Next up are the 10 teams from the 1A Southern Peaks.

Sangre De Cristo won the Southern Peaks league championship, the district title and earned a berth in the state tournament a year ago.  Once in Pueblo, the T-Birds finished 0-2 with narrow losses to Fleming (56-49) in the first round and South Baca (37-34) in the consolation bracket.  Cotopaxi grabbed 19 wins in 2018-19 but came up short to the state tournament in falling to McClave (47-41) in overtime at regionals.  Sierra Grande (13) and La Veta (11) will also look to improve on last year’s win totals.

We list the top three returnees for each club in several categories.  Numbers are based on stats posted to MaxPreps during the 2018-19 season.
