KUSA – After another great year of high school athletics, we’ve narrowed down the top nine teams of the year.

No. 9 – Niwot girls track and field: The cougars won their first ever team state title led by Elise Cranny’s three individual championships and two meet records.

No. 8 – ThunderRidge baseball: A 21-5 record and a dominating run thru the playoffs en route to the school’s second state baseball championship.
