Dear readers,

What better way to prepare for another high school sports season than to take a look at some of the area's best rivalries.

Gazette Preps is preparing to do an upcoming series on area rivalries at the high school level and how much fun they can be.

Over the next couple of weeks, we'd like your help in hearing about the best rivalries going on throughout our coverage area in the Pikes Peak region.

Not only would we like to hear about the biggest rivalries between schools, but also the biggest rivalries between schools in specific sports. Let us know why these rivalries exist and what makes them so much fun.

Think some of the old rivalries have died out? Let us know about that too? What were some of your favorites before Colorado Springs really started expanding?

Feel free to post your thoughts on our Facebook page (, and feel free to email us at to weigh in.

We're eager to see all of the input and we'll keep you posted on when we are getting ready to publish the series.
