Yuma girls hosting regional, boys in 14ers country

Yuma High School’s girls basketball team will get to host a Class 3A regional, this weekend, while the boys have to hit the road, but at least get to take in some great scenery on their way to Leadville.
Yuma’s girls are the fourth seed in the 32-team regional field, after winning their district tournament last weekend in Denver. It will be the first time the girls will host a regional since the 2019 championship season.
Yuma, 14-7, will welcome Lyons, Grand Valley and Bennet to The Pit.
The former Indians will play Lyons, 12-10 and the 29th-seed, at 5:30 p.m. Friday, followed by 13th-seed Grand Valley, 16-6, playing 20th-seed Bennett, 18-4. The winners will meet in the regional final Saturday at 1 p.m.
Yuma’s boys, 16-5, made a great effort in its district final before eventually losing to No. 1 Faith Christian. They ended up as the ninth-seed, making the long trip to Lake County High School in Leadville.
They play 24th-seed Bayfield, 9-12, at 7 p.m. on Friday. That game will be preceded by eighth-seed Lake County, 16-5, playing 25th-seed Meeker, 14-5, at 5:30 p.m. The winners will meet in the regional final Saturday at 1 p.m.
The boys games will be broadcast on the radio on KNEC, 100.9 FM. If you cannot make it to The Pit for the girls, the video can be accessed online at Stormysports.net.
