Rams, Demons shoot for regional tourneys

This weekend’s prep basketball playoff game schedule is set.

Three games involving area high schools tip off Friday evening. Roaring Fork, winners of last weekend’s boys and girls district tournaments at Palisade, plays host to two sets of regional semifinal games in Carbondale.

Action starts at 2 p.m. with a girls semifinal contest involving St. Mary’s Academy from Denver taking on The Classical Academy Titans from the Tri-Peaks League.

At 4 p.m., the first of two boys games that evening takes place, pitting Holy Family out of the Denver Metropolitan League against Weld Central. The Roaring Fork girls face Estes Park at 6 p.m. followed by the Rams-Ignacio game at 8 p.m.

The winners from each semifinal game play for the regional championship Saturday afternoon. Regional champions advance to the 3A state tournament next week at Colorado State University’s Moby Arena.

Ticket prices, set by the Colorado High School Activities Association, are $6 for adults and $5 for students and seniors.

The Glenwood Springs girls play Harrison in a Class 4A Sweet 16 matchup at 7:45 p.m. Friday night at Mesa State College in Grand Junction. The Demons advanced to the Tracy Hill regional semifinal on a 61-53 win over Longmont Saturday.

The winner from that contest advances to the March 4 regional finals against the survivor of Friday’s Moffat County-Montrose game.

Admission is $8 for adults and $6 for students and seniors.

Class 2A regional tournament games featuring the Grand Valley boys and girls teams are Saturday at Grand Junction High School.

Those games have the Cardinal boys squaring off with Nucla at 11:45 a.m. and the girls playing Mancos at 1:30 p.m. Winners from those games and the regional’s other semifinal contests move on to next week’s 2A state playoffs in Pueblo.
