With just two weeks left before the Eads Girls’ Track team travels to Jeffco Stadium in Denver for the 1A state championships on May 18, 19, and 20, the team challenged most every 1A school in the state in the 1A Invitational State Meet in Limon on Saturday where they finished as a team in second place out of an impressive field of 42 teams.  And they did it with a bunch of freshmen and sophomores with a junior added for good measure.

Will the Eads Boys Meet Their Potential?

Zach Haase Triple Jump
With time running out on the 2017 track season, the Eads Boys’ Track team is poised to truly make some major noise at the 1A state meet at Jeffco Stadium in Denver.  However, a large question mark looms over the head of Coach Stephanie Bohlander as she just has no answers whether two of her seniors, both past state champions, will be fit to compete in just two weeks.  Needless to say, it has been a stressful season thus far with hope running out whether Caden Parker and Fred Turner will get back on the track and be ready to go full out in grueling competition and in the multiple events needed to take home a state championship.  It can be done, but as they say, “The jury is still out.”

The District championships in Las Animas on Friday proved to be a frustrating experience for Eads head baseball coach Billy Koehler as his favored Eagles (#2) fell in the District semifinals, by a score of 8-3, to Cheyenne Wells (#3), a team Eads had beaten solidly in the regular season.  In days of old a stumble like this one would have meant the season was over for Eads, but CHSAA’s current RPI system, where an elaborate equation that considers a teams’ strength of schedule and opponent-to-opponent scoring, proved to help Eads stay alive to play another day.  And that day will be Saturday at All-City Field in Denver as Eads will enter the final eight state tournament seeded in the #4 hole and paired up with #5 Kiowa.  Game time will be 12:30. This game is win or go home so the Eagles have got to develop enough confidence and a strong game plan to get the job done.

With the weather continuing to cause havoc this week for the area baseball teams, Eads managed to get in three important varsity contests and a JV game among the multiple days of cold, drizzle, and wind.  Before the snow flew on Friday evening Eads had defeated Manzanola in two straight games, 12-0, and 9-4; but danced around the Holly game with neither team showing any of their arsenal, losing, 11-8.  The final showdown victory for Holly put them in sole possession of the district championship and will seed them as top dog in this week’s District Tournament.  Eads is right behind the Wildcats in the #2 spot.
