Entries into the first high school state tournament of 2016 will be handed out this week in boys golf.
There’s also a bevy of crosstown matchups between local high school teams in nearly every sport.
The high school sports scene is packed with good events right now, here’s a look at the top few for this week.
All tickets to the Class 5A state golf tournament will be punched by the middle of this week. Fossil Ridge is playing in the 5A Northern Regional on Monday at Saddle Rock Golf Course in Aurora.
Fort Collins and Poudre will play in Tuesday’s 5A Central Regional at City Park Golf Course in Denver. Rocky Mountain played its regional last week, with Cam Nagel earning a trip to the 5A state tournament Sept. 26-27 in Grand Junction.
Fossil Ridge at Rocky Mountain, 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The SaberCats and Lobos have created a nice rivalry in volleyball, with the two seeming to battle for the top of the Front Range League every time they play.
Rocky Mountain won the last two matchups, and Fossil Ridge will enter Thursday’s match ranked in the top 10.
Rocky Mountain vs. Poudre, 7 p.m. Friday at French Field. The last crosstown football game of the season features two teams looking to pick up a rebound victory.
It’s the last nonconference game of the season for Poudre, who is looking to be 3-2 entering its bye week. The Impalas lost an overtime heartbreaker to Fossil Ridge on Friday.
Rocky Mountain will look to shake off a lopsided loss to Fairview and pick up its first win of the season.
