CHSAA Releases Fall Sports Preseason Polls

 In Ark Valley Sports

On Monday, August 24, the CHSAA released the 2017 fall sports preseason polls, and here is a look at those polls with regard to our area Southeast Colorado schools and where they stand as action gets set to begin.

FOOTBALL – As always, Southeast Colorado will be represented with good teams in the A6 classification. Last year’s state runner-up, Cheyenne Wells, comes in at #3 in the preseason. Rival Kit Carson is ranked 5th and Eads is #8.

In the A8 classification, the Southeast League should be highly competitive as three squads sit just outside the top 10, including Granada, the 2016 league champion.

VOLLEYBALL – It’s shaping up to be another great season on the volleyball court for many area teams. Four (Kit Carson, McClave, Holly and Springfield) all made it to the 1A state tournament in 2016, and those same teams look to make it back again. State runner-up Kit Carson is the preseason favorite, followed by 2016 champion Fleming.
