With the playoff and conference title drive at full speed, Colorado Preps starts a new nightly feature where we break down results and the impact they have on the postseason. Check back throughout the night as the notes will be updated as results come in.
- Peyton collected an 82-47 win over local rival Calhan but the outcome does not factor into the Black Forest chase. The two meet again later in the season for their conference battle. The Panthers open this week tied with Thomas MacLaren for the conference lead and they will square off in Colorado Springs on Thursday.
- Byers rallied to stun Stratton 64-48 on Monday and with the win, the Bulldogs keep pace with Limon for the Union Pacific lead. Bulldogs trailed 42-38 to start the fourth quarter but outscored the Eagles 26-4 over the final eight minutes.
- Academy stayed in a third-place tie with Bennett by beating Platte Canyon 57-35. The Wildcats are now 5-1 in league play and they sit one game back of DSST-Montview and Middle Park. Academy can make up ground on both of them as they face Middle Park on Thursday and then DSST-Montview on Saturday.
- Alamosa’s win over Bayfield (55-41) keeps the Moose alone in first in the Intermountain. The game was a makeup of an earlier postponement. Alamosa is now 4-0 in league play and will face second place and fifth ranked Centauri on Friday.
- Green Mountain outscored Conifer 80-60 on Monday and the win keeps the Rams in first place atop the Jeffco. They opened the night with a one game edge on D’Evelyn and will face the Jaguars again next week.
- Golden remains alone in third place inside the Jeffco thanks to their 48-39 win over Wheat Ridge. The Demons bumped their mark to 6-3 and they remain one game back of D’Evelyn and two behind first place Green Mountain.
- Top ranked ThunderRidge earns a nice non-league win over Valor Christian (89-59) as they stay perfect against in-state competition. It also helps prep them for a big Continental league game with Regis on Saturday.
- Ponderosa knocked off Castle View 50-42 and the loss could be costly to the Sabercats. They began play tied for third with two other teams and only one game off the pace but they are now two games back in the loss column to Continental leaders Highlands Rand and Regis.
