SOME EXPLANATIONS

  • Thanks to a thrilling championship performance eight months ago, Cheyenne Mountain has earned the No. 1 ranking in our preseason poll.
  • Thompson Valley checks in at No. 2 after a promising playoff run that came to an abrupt end last spring at the hands of Cheyenne Mountain.
  • Golden sits at No. 4 after earning the 4th seed in last year’s state tournament and proving they had every right to be there by making it to the semis.
  • Dawson School fell hard in this year’s preseason poll due to the fact that much of Dawson’s core group of talented players graduated last spring. After having their hearts broken in shocking fashion last May, this likely could be a rebuilding year for Coach Devlin and the Mustangs.
