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…...

3A VOLLEYBALL – WEEK 3 REPORT

History over the past several years tells us that the top teams in Class 3A volleyball often collide in non-conference meetings ahead of brutal league schedules.  And that trend continues this week as three top 10 meetings headline the schedule.  7th ranked Resurrection Christian is involved in two of them as they face #2 Lutheran on Tuesday and then #6 Valley on Thursday.  #5 Platte Valley and #9 Middle Park also collide on Tuesday. The…...

3A GIRLS BASKETBALL WEEKLY UPDATE

Another battle among the heavyweights in the rugged Tri Peaks conference headlines our 3A girls’ basketball report this week.  The meeting is Friday as top ranked St Mary’s heads to Manitou Springs.  The Pirates are 8-0 and coming off an important win at Lamar last week.  The Mustangs are just 4-4 but won’t be an easy out.  They’ve played a strong schedule and were a top 10 club before last week’s loss to Sterling. In…...

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…...

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…...
