season, but it ended shy of a state title bid.

state championship tournament Oct. 23-24 at Aurora Sports Complex
in Aurora before getting eliminated by eventual champion
In Region 4 action, Cherry Creek was beaten by Standley Lake
early in the playoffs 4-0, but the Bruins later eliminated George
Washington 10-0. Creek picked off Standley Lake for a spot in the
5A state bracket, also with a 4-0 final.
In the first round of the state tournament, Creek (16-7) came in
as the No. 12 seed and opened against No. 5 Green Mountain (16-5).
Creek trailed by one run until the top of the six inning, when it
posted its two runs and preserved them. The Bruins had four hits
and two errors against the Rams and held them to two hits.
With the win, the Bruins defeated Mountain 2-1 and advanced to
the second round against No. 4 Eaglecrest (18-3).
With a 1-0 win, after four hits and no errors, over Eaglecrest,
Creek advanced to the quarterfinals against the undefeated Legacy
Lightning (18-0), the No. 1 seed. Laura Leonard had the only hit
for the Bruins against the state champs. The Lightning beat the
Bruins 16-1 to end Creek’s season with an 18-8 overall record.
