A huge top 10 clash Tuesday night will help determine the 3A Western Slope championship.Â The game is set for New Castle as #6 Grand Valley is on the road to meet #7 Coal Ridge. Grand Valley likely needs a win to stay in contention for the league crown while Coal Ridge can take control of the chase with a home win.
Both teams have already played Roaring Fork.Â The Rams are a third top club from the conference and they beat Grand Valley (51-48) on January 20th but then lost to Coal Ridge (68-64) three nights later.Â Since the Titans have the win over Roaring Fork, another over Grand Valley gives them the inside track to the league title and top district seed.Â Grand Valley keeps it a three-team race and also brings other teams into the mix if they post the road victory.
Elsewhere in Class 3A could be a high scoring battle between #4 Vanguard and Buena Vista.Â Cade Carroll of Buena Vista leads the entire state in scoring (32.8) and Vanguard’s Seth Fuqua (26.6) is fifth.Â Vanguard (7-0) leads the Tri Peaks by two games over CS Christian and St Mary’s.Â Buena Vista is tied for fifth with four other clubs but is only 4th in the RPI standings.
In Class 4A, Pueblo East is coming off an upset of Pueblo West and now the Eagles set their sights on top ranked Pueblo South.Â Win or lose, the Colts remain alone atop the South Central standings as they have a two game edge on four other clubs.
The small school headliner is in the 2A/1A Mile High where #8 Longmont Christian meets Dayspring Christian.Â It’s somewhat of an elimination game as the two clubs are tied with Heritage Christian and Union Colony Prep for second place behind Highland in the league standings.Â Â Union Colony Prep also challenges the league leading Huskies on Tuesday.
