This week's Gazette Preps high school sports rankings


Team Record Last Week

2. Fountain-Fort Carson 4-3 No. 2

3. Palmer 0-7 No. 3


1. Pine Creek 5-2 No. 1

2. Falcon 6-1 No. 2

2A & Below

1. Manitou Springs 7-0 No. 1

2. Florence 5-2 No. 2

3. Springs Christian 5-2 No. 3

Breakdown: Doherty can earn its first six-win season since 2006, but it will have to do it on the road against a Fountain-Fort Carson team that has won all three meetings since the Trojans moved up to 5A in 2010. . Pine Creek, the last undefeated team in Pikes Peak League play, controls its destiny and will win the league crown by winning its last three games. Ponderosa, one of two 3-1 teams, travels to District 20 Stadium on Saturday night to play the Eagles. . Coronado and Discovery Canyon remain on a crash course for a Nov. 2 game at D20 Stadium that, like last year, will decide the league title. . Colorado Springs Christian has won three straight and hosts Custer County on Saturday in its final home game.

Team Rec LstWk


1. Pine Creek 11-1-2 No. 1

2. Doherty 7-4-1 No. 2

3. Liberty 6-6-1 No. 3


1. Air Academy 14-1 No. 1

2. Cheyenne Mountain 11-3 No. 2

3. Lewis-Palmer 9-3-2 NR


1. The Classical Academy 13-1 No. 1

2. Manitou Springs 10-3 No. 2

3. Fountain Valley 8-5 No. 3

Breakdown: Not only is Pine Creek the best 5A team locally, the Eagles are the best team locally regardless of classification following their 1-0 overtime win over Air Academy. Doherty vs. Liberty on Thursday determines which team gets an automatic playoff berth. ... According to the maxpreps rankings (which aids in CHSAA's determination of playoff seedings), Air Academy's loss to Pine Creek didn't hurt. The Kadets are still tops in 4A. ... Fountain Valley played Vanguard late Monday. That winner should be in control of a league title .


Team Rec LstWk


1. Doherty 13-3 No. 1

2. Rampart 12-5 No. 2

3. Pine Creek 10-5 No. 3


1. Cheyenne Mountain 14-1 No. 1

2. Lewis-Palmer 15-1 No. 2

3. Air Academy 13-3 No. 3

3A & Below

1. Manitou Springs 18-0 No. 1

2. Colorado Springs School 16-1 No. 2

3. The Classical Academy 9-8 No. 3

Breakdown: Interesting thing here is even if Doherty wins its next two games, as long as Pine Creek beats Palmer, the league title won't be decided until the Eagles and Spartans meet Oct. 23, to end the regular season. ... Finally! Lewis-Palmer at Cheyenne Mountain on Tuesday. Winner is most likely league champ. Loser will have to wait until state to get a rematch. ... 1A-2A volleyball wraps up Saturday. We could see a three-way tie for first in the 2A Black Forest if CSS, Simla and Kiowa all end up with one loss.



Lewis-Palmer at Cheyenne Mountain - Winner should end up winning the 4A Pikes Peak Athletic Conference championship.



Doherty at Fountain-Fort Carson - Fountain-Fort Carson is the only unbeaten 5A Pioneer League team left. Doherty will try and change that.
