Battle Mountain High School, Glenwood Springs High School, Eagle Valley High School, Palisade High School, Summit High School, Steamboat Springs High School
A year ago Battle Mountain took the league by 41 points. They wracked up a tally of 142 points, beating Glenwood Springs, who tallied 101.
Battle Mountain: Sabrina Sutter, Naomi Harding, Lizzy Harding, Grace Johnson, Emma Reeder
Eagle Valley: Kaikea Cavaliero, Jewel Scrivens, Joslin Blair, Avery Doan
Glenwood Springs: Sophia Vigil, Sequoia Kellogg
Palisade: Erickah Logsdon
Steamboat Springs: Maggi Congdon, Winter Boese
In the team race Battle Mountain remains on top. They return the most from last year's squad, who went on to finish fourth at state.
In the sprints the girl to beat is Battle Mountain's Sabrina Sutter. She is the defending league champ in the 100, and the 200. Sutter will likely want to cap her senior year with two more league titles this year, though she'll have company.
She'll have two Eagle Valley sprinters to hold off.
Kaikea Cavaliero was fractions of a second behind her in the 100 last year, and is the No. 2 returner this year in the event. Likewise, Jewel Scrivens was a tenth of a second back in the 200 last year.
From the 400 on up to the 3,200 we see a mixture of the same names, which makes sense when you've got Battle Mountain and Eagle Valley in the league.
A year ago Naomi Harding took the 400, and if she runs the event this year she'll be looking to defend her title.
Naomi finished second to Joslin Blair last year in the 800, and right in front of sister Lizzy Harding. The trio took the top three spots in the mile as well, along with Grace Johnson.
Blair was a two-time winner last claiming the 1,600 and the 3,200, and she'll likely have sisterly company with Samantha Blair this year.
We'll see a battle between the Blair sisters and the Harding sisters in nearly everything from the 400 up to the 3,200.
*And with Steamboat Springs moving up to 4A, we'll potentially see defending 800,1,600 state champ Maggi Congdon in the mix, along with teammate Winter Boese.
Sequoia Kellogg is a name that pops up multiple times.
The Glenwood senior is the top returner in the 100 hurdles, the 300 hurdles, and the long jump. She could give Glenwood some big points with top-tier performances across multiple events.
Kellogg could battle for potentially four league titles, though she'll have to go the distance against Erickah Logsdon in the triple jump. Logsdon is the defending champ.
Last year we had a three-way tie in the high jump. With two graduating, that leaves "defending" champ Emma Reeder as the lone favorite. And that won't be the only event Reeder returns as the favorite in. She is the defending champ in the pole vault as well.
In the throws we'll see a battle between Payten Spencer and Morgan Sellden. Spencer is the top returner in the discus, just ahead of Sellden, who is the top returner in the shot.
