What has turned out to be a very deep and talented 1A Southern Peaks league this year sees another important contest on the schedule today.Â #3 Creede is home to #10 Sierra Grande and the outcome will impact the league championship and district tournament seeding.
The Panthers are coming off a very impressive win over Cotopaxi on Friday and that decision kept them tied with Sangre De Cristo in first place.Â Creede came up one point short in their conference meeting with Sangre last week so they need a win to stay within one game of the lead.Â A loss likely leaves them as the number three seed in the district bracket.
Byers and Strasburg are close rivals along I-70 and they meet for non-conference play this evening.Â Both are in the top ten this week as Byers is 4th in 2A and Strasburg 10th in 3A.Â Another non-league date of note can be found in 3A between #9 DSST-Stapleton and Faith Christian.
Up in Class 5A, #6 Overland and #10 Smoky Hill are separated by just four spots in the statewide rankings and the Blazers also lead the Buffs by four games in the Centennial.Â Overland is up on the entire conference by at least three games.Â They sit at 9-0 with second place Grandview at 7-3.
