Five Colorado teams battle for supremacy as season enters stretch run

The Colorado high school field hockey season enters the final two weeks of regular season play with five teams fighting for the top spot. Colorado Academy (8-3) is currently tops in points, followed by Cherry Creek (6-2-3), Palmer Ridge (6-0-2) and Kent Denver (6-1-2) in a tie, and Denver East (6-2-1) rounding out the top contenders.

This week has many matches that could cause big changes in the rankings. CA has the toughest schedule, having to play both Denver East and Cherry Creek. Palmer Ridge plays Kent Denver; the teams tied earlier in the season. At the same time, Palmer Ridge, Kent, and Denver East all have games against teams with losing records and each could easily increase their win totals.
