Class 1A Idalia advances to state tournament Volleyball Report By Alicia Barry The Class 1A State volleyball teams have been filled. Nearly every region champion did so in style, with every match going in straight sets, except for five that were pushed to a game four. A new State Champion will be crowned, as the defending champs, Weldon Valley, went down in the Region H tournament. Coming out of Region A is Vail Christian. The 18-6 Lady Saints captured the title by sweeping Cotopaxi and La Veta, both 3-0. Kit Carson will represent Region B. The Lady Wildcats will take a 16-8 record to the State Tournament after defeating Cheraw 3-0 and Holly 3-1. A familiar face at the tournament, Otis came out of

Nov. 1 Stratton Genoa-Hugo Idalia Stratton

F as champs. The 21-3 Lady Eagles beat Wiley 3-0 and Walsh 3-1. The Region G Champion is Idalia. The Lady Wolves were pushed to four games against Genoa-Hugo, and beat Stratton 3-0, to bring their record to 15-6. 23-3 Fleming beat the defending State Champions, Weldon Valley 3-0, in their first game. The Lady Wildcats went on to capture the Regional title by beating Belleview Christian 3-0. Receiving the wildcards are Hi-Plains (15-9), Flagler (20-5), Rocky Mountain Lutheran (21-3), and Liberty/Stratton (17-7).

Region C as the top team. The Lady Bulldogs swept (30) Hi-Plains and Flagler, to bring their record to 23-1. Caliche bounced back from losing the District Championship, and won where it counted.

3A Patriot League Volleyball Report By Alicia Barry Unlike Classes 1A and 2A, each 3A team at the State Tournament won their region, advancing them on. There are no wildcards awarded in the upper classifications. Out of 24 matches in 3A regional play, only four of them went more than three sets. Eaton’s strong volleyball program extended their season by winning Region 1. The 23-1 Lady Reds swept James Irwin and Eagle Ridge Academy, both 3-0. Defending State Champion, Valley, claimed Region 2. The Lady Vikings went to 20-5 with 3-0 wins over Alamosa and La Junta. Manitou Springs is the lone undefeated team in the classification, sitting at 25-0. The Lady Mustangs added two more to the win column, with 3-0 matches over Grand Valley and Pagosa Springs in Region 3. Platte Valley took Region 4 and brought their record to 18-7. The Lady Broncos won in straight sets against Cedaredge and Peak to Peak. The Region 5 honors went to Holy Family. The 20-5 Lady Tigers defeated St. Mary’s and Bennett, both 3-

Hi-Plains Senior Alex Nelson

By Alicia Barry As the final weekend of volleyball approaches and football teams make their way through playoffs, Super Seniors are continuing their play. This week will feature

Haley Patterson of Otis and Alex Nelson of HiPlains. Patterson is the lone senior on the #3 ranked Otis volleyball team. The Lady Bulldogs are headed into this weekend’s

Otis Senior Haley Patterson

State Tournament with a record of 23-1, and will face off in Pool III with #6 Flagler and #10 Rocky Mountain Lutheran. She is second on her team in kills, with an impressive 202 on over

661 attempts. Patterson has also put up 2 solo and 8 assisted blocks, and lent 76 assists. Behind the serving stripe, Patterson is serving 91.9%, with 67 aces on 309 serves. Patterson has took the

serve receive 244 times, and added 217 digs. She will switch gears in a few days and hopefully lead the Lady Bulldogs’ basketball team to a successful season. Nelson is the leading rusher for the 6-Man Patriots, averaging 8.85 yards per game and 136.0 yards per game, on his 123 carries. In addition, he has passed for 140 yards, completing 7 of 11 passes, and caught for 295 yards on 15 receptions. Nelson is all over the field with 1,088 rush yards, 295 receiving yards, 248 kick-receiving yards, and 199 punt return yards, totaling 1,846 yards and 230.8 yards per game. He has

rushed for 18 touchdowns and caught for 6 more. He is also the top defensive player for Hi-Plains, with 51 solo and 30 assisted tackles, totaling 81. He also has 1 sack and 2 interceptions to his name. Nelson has a strong leg, kicking off 22 times and punting 4 times. Nelson will try to help the 9-1 Patriots secure a place in the State Championship game. But first, he and his team must get by 9-1 Eads in this weekend’s State Semifinal matchup. The 6’1” 150-pound Nelson also competes for the Patriots’ basketball and track and field teams.

The opening round of the 8-man football playoffs almost saw the chalk hold, as only one of the top eight seeds was upset. Unfortunately, for the Plains Division, that upset was not sprung by one of the division's two teams that were in the bottom half of the seedings. Second-seeded Dayspring Christian earned an easy 47-8 victory over Fowler in the opening round, with the Eagle defense forcing three turnovers. Next up for the Eagles will be a rematch

with Sargent in the quarterfinals. The seventh-seeded Farmers moved past Vail Christian, 63-16. Dayspring already owns a 52-0 victory over Sargent. Caliche avenged last year's opening round loss to Walsh by blasting the Eagles, 55-0. It was the second straight shut-out by the Buffs and their fifth of the season. They'll visit #4 Simla this weekend. The Cubs won a shoot-out against Akron, 60-44.

Damian Bell was a workhorse in that contest, carrying the ball 34 times for 409 yards and eight touchdowns. Simla gained 495 yards on the ground. Merino visited Kiowa, looking to avenge an earlier 146 loss to the Indians, but that did not happen. Kiowa bounced the Rams from the bracket with a 40-22 decision. Merino finished the season at 4-6, while Akron ended 6-4.

ry sets up a rematch with Limon in the quarterfinals. The Badgers, seeded second in the field, hammered Lyons 40-6. The Indians and Badgers met in the seasonopener at Yuma, and Limon snuck out with a 20-14 victory. This meeting will be played in Limon. Resurrection Christian pushed its winning streak to six with a 36-20 upset at #8 Platte Canyon. The Cougars have not lost since suffering a 20-14 defeat in week four against Yuma. That streak will be tested this week when the Cougars host the top seed and defending state runnersup, the Buena Vista Demons. Buena Vista led Front Range Christian 34-6 in the first quarter last week, eventually claiming a 48-12 win. The Demons are 22-1 since the start of last season. The lone loss suffered by the NCL in the opening round was by Wray. The Eagles spent well over six hours on the bus, as they traveled to La Jara to face Centauri. The Falcons intercepted four passes on their way to claiming the 28-0 victory. Wray finished the season at 5-5.

Semi-Finals Nov. 16

Beetdiggers host quarter-finals By Kerry Sherman Two of the four Patriot League teams that qualified for the Class 2A play-offs picked up wins last weekend and will continue their march toward a state title. Top-seeded Brush and thirdseeded Platte Valley both picked up victories by big margins, while #9 Strasburg and #12 Fort Lupton were both send packing. Brush used a 27-point third quarter to blow out The Academy, 55-6. The Beetdiggers amassed 372 rushing yards while topping the 50-point plateau for the third time in four games, and the fourth time this season. They will host #8 Florence on Saturday. The Huskies, who finished second in the Tri-Peaks behind #2 Manitou Springs, defeated Strasburg 26-20 in the opening round. The Indians had trouble containing Florence quarterback Zach Hoxie, who accounted for 361 yards of offense and four touchdowns. Platte Valley blasted Ridge View Academy 49-0 in the opening round and the Broncos will host #6 Bennett in the quarterfinals this Saturday. The Tigers escaped the upset bid of #11

Olathe, 14-13, when the Pirates failed to convert the PAT after scoring a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Fort Lupton had its season come to a close with a 49-28

loss at Gunnison. The Blue Devils dug a 35-0 halftime hole that they just could not overcome. Three interceptions by the offense hurt the cause.

Mustangs Finish Season With 29-18 Win Over Vista Peak By Kerry Sherman As expected, only one team from the Metro-East has qualified for the Class 3A play-offs. Elizabeth will be the lone representative for the league, as Vista PEAK and Fort Morgan finished the regular season out of the top 16 in wild card points. Fort Morgan made a late run at the play-offs, defeating Weld Central and Vista PEAK over the final two weeks, but the Mustangs could not overcome an early season loss to a twowin Skyline squad. Even with the 29-18 victory over Vista PEAK, the Mustangs finished one spot behind the Bison in the final wild card standings, winding up in 20th place.

As for the league champion Cardinals, they wrapped up an undefeated run through the Metro-East by beating Weld Central, 42-8. Elizabeth will take an 8-2 record into this weekend's home play-off game against the 12th seeded Glenwood Springs Demons. The Demons are one of four teams from the Western Slope League, joining #2 Palisade, #11 Rifle and #13 Delta. In the battle to stay out of the league cellar, Englewood defeated Skyview, 24-13. The Pirates intercepted four passes in the contest, and Alberto Pacheco recorded two picks for the Wolverines.
