2A FOOTBALL PREVIEW – WEEK 6

Through the first five weeks of the season, the Patriot West was the only 2A Football conference to have all teams at five hundred or better.  Now those clubs start league play in what could turn out to be the best league chase in the division.  The main event this week pits #5 Resurrection Christian (4-0) against #10 Berthoud (3-0).  #8 Eaton (3-1) has the undercard against longtime rival University (2-2). The key matchup between…...

3A VOLLEYBALL REPORT – WEEK 6

It could turn out to be the Tri Peaks league championship match on Thursday when #6 Manitou Springs hosts #7 Colorado Springs Christian.  Both teams enter the week 5-0 in conference play and each has at least a two-game edge on all conference clubs so the winner is in good shape to land the title.  The match is one of several with a direct impact on league leads this week. Both the Lions and Mustangs…...

3A VOLLEYBALL REPORT – WEEK 5

For the first time since 2013, there’s a new number one team in Class 3A volleyball.  Lutheran wrestled the top spot away from the five-time defending state champions this week after the Reds went 1-3 at the Eaglecrest Tournament; an event they had won the past three years.  Lutheran is unbeaten at 7-0 as they open conference play in the Metro. Our 3A report this week will serve as a league primer across the division. …...

3A VOLLEYBALL – WEEK 4 REPORT

We waited until Wednesday to post our weekly 3A volleyball report since we wanted to recap several important matches from early in the week.  Several contests on Tuesday featured heavyweights from the division squaring off and facing challenges from highly ranked programs from larger classifications. #3 University began what will be strong stretch of matches by outlasting #3 Holy Family (4A) in five sets.  The Bulldogs dropped the first set but rallied to take the…...

1A FOOTBALL PREVIEW – WEEK 3

Some of the best regular season contests inside Class 1A football the past couple of years have featured games between Strasburg-Bennett and Limon-Crowley County.  Those Eastern Colorado rivalries continue this weekend and the matchups headline the week three schedule. Because Bennett has moved to Class 2A for at least the next two years, the game does not carry the same level of importance of the past couple of years as both teams were battling for…...

3A VOLLEYBALL SEASON PREVIEW

Even though they lost a ton of talent to graduation, the road to the 3A state championship still goes through Eaton.  The Reds are the five-time defending state champions in the class and are at the stage where they reload instead of rebuild.  Another crown this November will tie the Reds with Colorado Springs Christian (2004-09) for the most consecutive state titles in volleyball. Many new faces will have to contribute for Eaton to make…...

2A/3A POST-SEASON PROJECTIONS

In a new feature that began yesterday, Colorado Preps will forego the weekly announcement of top 10 basketball rankings and instead focus on how the post-season bracketing may shape up.  Tuesday was the first release of our 1A projections and today we present our initial take on the 2A and 3A boys’ basketball playoffs. The projections are a bit different as the pairings are quite different than 1A.  In both classifications, district champions are seeded…...
