On Saturday night, Boys Varsity Basketball won the 1A District Championship game against Denver Waldorf in what had gotten close going into the 3rd quarter.
It was an exciting game for more than just the win. This is the first year our Mustangs are in the 5280 league. This is the first year we have gone this far. This is the first year we are testing the waters of what we can do as a small school with big heart.
Team Captain Payton had this to say about the win, “We went in pretty confident because we’ve grown as a team. We work well together.”
And though Ryan says he just likes playing with his friends, the team spirit on the court seems to demonstrate there may be more to it than that.
So, now it’s been announced – Seeding for the CHSAA playoffs – Mustangs qualify for the CHSAA 1A Sweet Sixteen, this means we are considered one of the top 16 teams in the state!
CHEER us on at our next game Saturday night, March 2 at Northeastern Junior College (Sterling, CO) with a start time of 6:30pm. Our opponent is still to be determined. Admission will be $8 for adults and $6 for students/seniors.
If we win on Saturday, we are qualified for “State” which means we are one of the top 8 teams left, and will then play Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of next week (March 7-9).
Last Saturday night was exciting, but things are heating up this weekend. Hope to see a lot of Mile High fans out at the game.
