With the 2019-20 girls basketball season right around the corner, let’s take a look back/forward at how things shook out and what to look forward to in each of Colorado’s conferences. Here’s a snapshot of the Pikes Peak League.
How it all shook out in ’18-19
Air Academy has dominated this league for the past three years to the tune of three straight conference championships, 40-2 combined league record over the past three seasons and back-to-back unbeaten conference seasons in ’17-18 and ‘18-19. The Kadets ran the table with seven points being their smallest margin of victory in any conference game.
Which playoff team advanced the farthest?
This category also clearly goes to Air Academy, as the Kadets played their way into the Final Four of the 4A state tournament. Their run ended there, unfortunately, with a 45-42 loss to eventual runner-up Pueblo South.
