The Thunderhawks, who lost to No. 16 Grandview in the state tournament opener, now have to go through the consolation round to reach the championship game. After defeating No. 13 Chaparral (5-2) and No. 11 Cherokee Trail (5-2) in the first and second round consolation games, respectively, Prairie View maintained its prospects of making it to the tournament.

The Falcons defeated No. 3 Pueblo County 5-4 in the opening round and No. 2 Golden 7-2 in the second, therefore defeating two of the top three seeds in the competition. The Falcons’ 11-6 loss to Holy Family, ranked No. 5, means they will have to go through the consolation bracket and, should they make it to the final game, defeat Holy Family twice to win the championship.
No. 2 Golden hopes to advance from the consolation round to the Championship Game. In baseball, the Demons will be vying for their second state championship overall and their first since 2003.

After losing to No. 6 Falcon 5-4 in their state tournament opener, the Hornets are hoping to go on in the consolation bracket.

Teams for the 3A Final Four
With a win, No. 1 Eaton will extend its winning run to four straight state titles. The Reds, who have won each of the previous three state crowns, are the school with the most titles in state history (15). The Reds defeated No. 8 Forge Christian 6-5 in the opening round of this year’s state tournament. They then triumphed over No. 5 Coal Ridge 14-4 and No. 3 University 2-0.
No. 3 University is hoping to win its first state championship since winning back-to-back crowns in 2018 and 2019 and get revenge on Eaton, which has defeated them in the final game the past two years. In baseball, University has won five state championships overall; the first was in 1982. This season, the Bulldogs defeated No. 2 Berthoud, 6-4, and No. 6 Colorado Academy, 5-2, before losing to No. 1 Eaton, 2-0, in the quarterfinals. University will attempt to advance to the final game by winning two games against Eaton in the consolation round.
In baseball, No. 4 Resurrection Christian is vying for its third state title and first since 2014.

In baseball, No. 5 Coal Ridge is vying for its first-ever state championship. After defeating No. 4 Resurrection Christian 11-0 to start the state tournament, the Titans lost 14-4 to top-seeded Eaton, the three-time reigning champion. Coal Ridge defeated No. 10 The Classical Academy 7–6 in the second round consolation game. In its rematch with No. 4 Resurrection Christian, Coal Ridge will try to move on in the consolation bracket.
Teams for the 2A Final Four
In baseball, No. 2 Denver Christian is attempting to retain its crown from the previous year and earn its fourth state championship; the Thunder have already won state in 1996 and 2013. Denver Christian has dominated the competition thus far, defeating No. 7 Monte Vista 4-1, No. 11 Dayspring Christian 11-2, and No. 12 Lyons 6-2 to secure a spot in the Championship Game on Saturday.
In baseball, No. 12 Lyons is vying for its first state championship; it is the school’s first state championship in any sport since 2019. After defeating No. 13 Swink 12-2 in the opening round, the Lions defeated top-seeded Limon 5-1. However, the Lions’ semifinal loss to Denver Christian, ranked second, was 6-2. As a result, they will have to go through the consolation bracket to play in the championship game.
Playing through the consolation round, No. 1 Limon is aiming for its third consecutive crown and its fifth overall after winning state titles in 2021 and 2022. The Badgers defeated No. 8 Buena Vista, who they will play again in the state championship, 17-7 in the opening round of the tournament. However, they were defeated 5-1 by No. 12 Lyons. A 2-1 victory over No. 3 Las Animas secured Limon the consolation round second round match.
In baseball, No. 8 Buena Vista is vying for both its first state championship and the school’s first since 2020. The top-seeded Demons were defeated 17-7 by Limon in the state tournament’s opening match, but they bounced back to defeat No. 13 Swink 6-5 and No. 11 Dayspring Christian 7-4 in the first two consolation rounds. The winner of the rematch between Buena Vista and No. 1 Limon advances to the fourth-round consolation game.
