Three heavyweight conference matchups and a top two cross classification matchup gets the top 10 schedule for the week started in major fashion.Â Contests of note include Rock Canyon-Regis in 5A, Silver Creek-Longmont in 4A, Platte Valley-Resurrection Christian in 3A and the Northeast battle between Sedgwick County and Peetz.
Rock Canyon sits atop the 5A basketball rankings again this week and is perfect on the season at 13-0. The Jags are the defending Centennial champs and blistered Regis 67-38 a year ago on their way to the crown.Â The Raiders are ranked 8th this week and coming off hard fought losses to ThunderRidge and George Washington last week.
#4 Longmont is 4-0 and alone atop the Northern conference standings while #6 Silver Creek is tied with #10 Thompson Valley in second.Â The game is important to the league race but city bragging rights also go to the winner until the second meeting next month.
Also in 4A is a very attractive Tri Valley matchup between #9 Windsor and Mead.Â Both are unbeaten in conference play so the winner takes over sole possession of first place.
In Class 3A, top ranked and defending state champion Sterling is favored to land another Patriot championship but #5 Platte Valley and #9 Resurrection Christian are considered the top challengers.Â They collide near Loveland tonight and the winner keeps pace with the Tigers.
Sedgwick County and Peetz are a combined 18-0 as they meet up this week.Â The Cougars are ranked number one in Class 2A and the Bulldogs check in at number two in Class 1A.Â For Peetz, this could be their final challenge of the regular season as they’re expected to roll through the North Central title.Â Sedgwick County will have several tests left in the rugged Lower Platte.
