The baseball program at Broomfield High School has given every impression this spring that it’s ready to make a repeat run at the 5A crown, and that’s even without some of its stars from a season ago.

First, though, it’ll have the chance to do what it couldn’t last year: Win league.

The CHSAA No. 1 Eagles beat No. 2 Rocky Mountain 3-1 Saturday behind seven sparkling innings from ace Noah Scott, putting them in the driver’s seat in the Front Range League. With a one game lead over Legacy in the standings and a 1 1/2 game lead over the Lobos, they have five league games remaining to finish off their first league title since 2016.

In this week’s look at the sport, we’ll focus on the most intriguing league race in the 5A-2A classifications. For 1A, we’ll look at one district tournament we have an eye on as it goes into the semifinals Thursday.

Class 5A

Front Range League: Broomfield (17-1) has a game lead on Legacy and is 1 ½ games up on Rocky Mountain with five games remaining in the regular season.

Noah Scott lowered his ERA to 0.87 in 40 1/3 innings Saturday, allowing one unearned run in the 3-1 win over the Lobos. Luke Blackmon drove in a run in the win, then had two more RBIs in a 10-3 victory over Mountain Range Tuesday, giving him a third-most in league 25 on the season.

Broomfield will travel to Legacy Wednesday. The Lightning, as far as possible tiebreakers go, lost to Rocky Mountain 6-4 last month.

Class 4A

Jefferson County League: Golden (15-4, 7-0) kept pace atop the league standings thanks to a wild 27-16 win over D’Evelyn Wednesday afternoon. Next is a two-game set against co-league undefeated Evergreen (13-3, 6-0) starting Thursday.

The Demons hadn’t allowed double-digit runs to a team in Colorado until their 43-run affair with the Jaguars. Hayden Carbone had five hits and five RBIs in the win. Sawyer Brinkman homered and had two doubles.

The Cougars, meanwhile, finished their two-game sweep of Wheat Ridge Tuesday, outscoring the Farmers a combined 35-3. Augie Webre had another two knocks in the latest, giving him a hit in every game this season. His .667 batting average is tops in 4A.

Class 3A

Western Slope League: Coal Ridge sophomore Ben Simons leads the league in batting average, RBIs, ERA and is third in strikeouts, per MaxPreps. Now the question is will that be enough to help the Titans (16-0, 6-0) edge out Roaring Fork (10-6, 5-0), Delta (12-5, 4-1) or Basalt (9-8, 5-2) for the league crown.

Simons came into pitch in the top of the seventh against Delta Wednesday, getting three straight outs to get out of a jam, and the Titans won on a walk-off error in the bottom of the frame to stay undefeated on the season.

They face Roaring Fork in a matchup of current undefeated league teams Tuesday.

Class 2A

Mile High League: From the looks of it, it’ll come down to either Denver Christian (13-3, 5-0), Dawson (11-2, 7-1) or Lyons (12-4, 7-2).

Dawson senior Ashtin Gilio leads the state with a batting average of .828, an on-base percentage of .909 and a slugging mark of 1.965. He had two more hits and three RBIs in a 10-0 over Bishop Machebeuf Tuesday.

The Mustangs, who lost to Lyons last month, will host Denver Christian Tuesday.

The Thunder, led by standout pitcher Brayden Epperhart and his 0.25 ERA, finish their regular season on May 16 against the Lions, who have six guys with 10 or more RBIs on the season.

Class 1A

District 5: With only two spots for regionals available, four of the CHSAA’s Selection and Seeding Index’s top 10 are left in this district. Meaning, two will get left out.

In its semifinals, CHSAA’s Selection and Seeding No. 1 Haxtun will face No. 10 Otis at Northeastern Junior College. No. 2 Merino faces No. 4 Akron on the other side.

Haxtun beat Otis 15-0 last month and split a doubleheader against Merino two days later. It swept Akron in a doubleheader to open the season. Kaden Piel is hitting .354 with 17 RBIs and has a 1.40 ERA in 35 innings for the Rams.
