Capsules for girls' basketball area teams who open regional postseason play Friday.

Class 3A

No. 26 The Pinnacle (13-9) at No. 7 Manitou Springs (16-6)

When/where: 6:30 p.m. Friday, at Manitou Springs

Quick hits: Manitou Springs enters on a six-game winning streak, most recently beating then-undefeated Lamar in the Tri-Peaks League title game. Freshman Shelby Megyeri leads the Mustangs, averaging 15.0 points.

 

No. 14 St. Mary's (15-8) vs. No. 19 TCA (16-7)

When/where: 5 p.m. Friday, at Sterling

Quick hits: These longtime Tri-Peaks crossover rivals hit the road in an elimination game, the winner likely getting a matchup against state-ranked Sterling on Saturday to punch a ticket to the quarterfinals. St. Mary's beat Trinidad to earn third place in the Tri-Peaks League tournament, while the Titans lost two of three in the tournament.

 

Class 2A

Calhan (9-12) vs. Heritage Christian (19-3)

When/where: 6:30 p.m. Friday, at Mullen

Quick hits: The Bulldogs finished third in the Black Forest League after knocking off Vanguard last week. Riley Cookson is scoring 14.8 points for Calhan, while Morgan Helton averages a double-double (11.7 points, 10.5 rebounds).

 

ECA (9-13) vs. Hoehne (20-1)

When/where: 3 p.m. Friday, at Otero J.C.

Quick hits: Two seasons ago, the Eagles advanced to the 2A state championship game. They'll have a tough time Friday against a Hoehne squad that suffered its only loss to 3A Trinidad on Dec. 6. Senior Tori Mann is ECA's unquestioned leader, averaging 17.2 points, 8.6 rebounds and 4.4 steals.

 

The Vanguard School (16-6) vs. Del Norte (14-7)

When/where: 6 p.m. Friday, at Otero J.C.

Quick hits: Vanguard has a tough route to reach the 2A state tournament for a third straight season. The Coursers, led by Caitlin Bower (14.6 points) and Angel McNulty (14.0), started 11-1 but lost three of four to end the regular season.

 

Peyton (22-1) vs. Fowler (10-12)

When/where: 4 p.m. Friday, at Fountain Middle School

Quick hits: Peyton, riding a 15-game winning streak, seems poised to return to the 2A state tournament for the second consecutive season. The highest-scoring team in 2A (74 points per game) is led by senior Shelby Patterson (19.6 points) and junior Victoria Goodman (11.4). Goodman ranks fifth in the state (all classes) in 3-pointers made with 63.
