1A FOOTBALL PREVIEW – WEEK 6

Here we are in the last week of September and our weekly 1A football report can finally focus on conference play and not just RPI positioning for the playoffs.  Regardless of how they fared through the first six weeks of the season, each team remains in the post-season chase as league champions earn automatic bids to the bracket. The North Central features four teams in the top seven this week and two of them square…...

2A VOLLEYBALL REPORT – WEEK 6

Since the late September and October volleyball schedule is dominated with league matches, its extremely rare to get two number one ranked teams on the same court but the 2A volleyball schedule includes such a pairing this week.  Class 2A #1 Yuma entertains Class 1A #1 Kit Carson on Saturday in a highly anticipated match. Players involved won’t be intimidated by the attention the match receives as most have played on the big stage many…...

1A FOOTBALL PREVIEW – WEEK 5

Each week we try to provide a complete overview of Class 1A football and concentrate on the top games across the state.  But this week, almost 100 percent of the focus will be centered on the one versus two matchup between Strasburg and Limon.  It’s a non-conference game but there are plenty of implications involving the outcome. The winner of course will be the number one team in the rankings next Monday and if both…...

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…...

1A VOLLEYBALL REPORT – WEEK 3

While this week’s schedule does not include a match-up of the top two teams in the 1A Volleyball rankings like last week, there are plenty of appetizing contests slated. There is only one match pitting ranked foes, but many of the top 10 have outings where they could be pushed. Top-ranked Kit Carson found itself in a rare hole last Friday, as the Wildcats trailed then #2 La Veta two sets to one. It was…...

2A VOLLEYBALL SEASON PREVIEW

State semifinalists from last November hold down the top four spots in the Class 2A pre-season volleyball rankings.  Defending state champion Lyons checks in at number two behind state runner-up Yuma in the poll with Denver Christian and Meeker sitting in spots three and four. Lyons topped Yuma 3-1 in last year’s state championship match and both teams return good talent but also feature some holes to fill from those lineups. The top ranked Indians…...

2A GIRLS BASKETBALL – WEEKLY REPORT

With five teams still unbeaten in the Western Slope conference, the early standings are still bunched at the top.  But with some of the top clubs facing strong challenges this week, some thinning of the herd could occur.  And that’s where we begin our Class 2A girls’ basketball weekly report. 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…...
