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 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…...

2A FOOTBALL PREVIEW – WEEK 3

There’s just one game on the 2A football slate this week featuring Top 10 team facing off.  That’s on Saturday when #9 Eaton makes the trip to #10 D’Evelyn.  The meeting of #6 Kent Denver and Faith Christian should also be considered a top 10 battle even though the Eagles were dropped from the rankings following an opening loss to Resurrection Christian.  Despite that decision, Faith Christian is still (in our thoughts) among the best…...

2A FOOTBALL WEEKLY REPORT

For the third time in the past 12 months, Faith Christian and Resurrection Christian collide on the gridiron.  Their latest meeting takes place on Friday and both teams are in the top 10 this week with the Eagles checking in at #5 and the Cougars one step back in sixth. The clubs split two matchups in 2017.  Faith Christian won the season opening battle 9-0 but Resurrection Christian took the more important playoff matchup; rallying…...

2A FOOTBALL SEASON PREVIEW

In alternating championships over the past three years, Bayfield and La Junta have dominated the Class 2A division of late.  Bayfield is the defending state champion and also won the crown in 2015 while La Junta grabbed the top trophy in between.  Pollsters expect the two to again battle it out as they open the 2018 season ranked 1-2 in the classification. A special group of seniors led Bayfield to the title last year and…...

3A BOYS BASKETBALL WEEKLY UPDATE

Following a home loss to #2 Alamosa last Friday, #4 Kent Denver needed a quick rebound in their conference opener with #3 Faith Christian and the Sun Devils did exactly that on Tuesday as they downed the Eagles 65-51 on the road.  Each club has eight league games remaining and upsets often occur in the Metro, but the win could easily propel the Sun Devils to the league championship. The game was tight through three…...
