TOP GAMES FOR WEEK ONE – 1A/2A

An early season clash of heavyweights along with at least four other excellent contests headline week one of the girls’ basketball season in Classes 1A and 2A.  The game gaining the most attention is the Friday meeting between Yuma and Wray but pairings of Fleming-Haxtun, North Park-Genoa Hugo, Sierra Grande-South Baca and Salida-Del Norte are also attractive.

Paonia, Hotchkiss, Meeker, Soroco and Vail Christian all go to the weekend with identical 2-0 marks.  On Thursday, Meeker faces local rival Rangely and then…...

In Class 1A girls’ basketball, there are three regions that will qualify eight teams to the state tournament.  Each week, we’ll project the two games…...
