Our second edition of the volleyball composite rankings for the week is now available. Rankings for all five classes are below and they are a combination of polls from MaxPreps, RPI and CHSAA. Our numbers are not official but the formula will be used to select teams for the 24-team regional tournament brackets. League champions earn automatic bids with the remaining spots chosen by the composite rankings.
A couple of heavyweight clashes set for tonight will help determine the top three spots in their respective conference. #2 Wiggins and #4 Sedgwick County square off in the Lower Platte chase while #1 Palmer Ridge meets #7 Rampart for a battle inside the Pikes Peak conference.
League championships continue to be the focus for Colorado Preps as we continue the daily preview of the top volleyball matchups in and out of the top 10. Just nine days remain in the regular season before each class is narrowed to 24 teams for the playoff run. State championships are set for May 10th and 11th in Loveland.
Class 4A volleyball playoffs open in about ten days and the Windsor Wizards hope to be in the state championship mix. Coach Laverne Huston has a veteran group including senior standout Sara Scott. Scott is our latest guest on the Next Up Video Series with Marty Cesario.
Four weeks into a six-game regular season, the spring football playoff picture is starting to take some shape. It should round into even more form after this week especially in Class 5A where the top four clubs in the first composite rankings of the season clash.
Fresh off a grueling five set win over top ranked Palmer Ridge, Class 4A #2 Cheyenne Mountain jumps right back into the league fray on the road to Pine Creek. That contest and the second league battle between #6 Rampart (5A) and Liberty headline the very light Wednesday Top 10 volleyball schedule.
With two weeks remaining in the regular season, Colorado Preps provides a first look at composite rankings for the spring football season. This formula, which combines rankings of RPI, MaxPreps, CHSAA and Packard into one poll, will be used to determine the eight playoff qualifiers in each class. These are unofficial but our projections back in the fall finished in exactly the same order as the official numbers posted at the end of the season by CHSAA.
Glenwood Springs football remained unbeaten in the Spring season with a late 21-14 win over Basalt last week. The win pushed the Demons to number two in the most recent 3A polls and puts them in position for the top overall playoff seed especially if they beat Rifle in week five. The Demons have success on the ground and much of it comes from the work of Blake Nieslanik and he joins Marty Cesario on this episode of Next Up Video.
