    Last year, the 5A boys classification was Wheat Ridge's show, from start of the season to finish.

Wheat Ridge has departed to 4A, leaving a pile of hungry teams to compete for the gold trophy. Bobby Nicolls and Evan Appel, above, return as the preseason favorites to win the individual title (all photos courtesy of Ken Regan).
